In recent years the notion of responsible leadership has attracted significant interest.
Authors who write on this theme consider the topic from different perspectives and employ
various terms such as values based leadership, moral leadership and ethical leadership. By
providing a short list of articles/ chapters there is the risk of leaving out some important
contributions to the field. However, the following would be of interest to individuals who
might wish to broadly engage with the topic.
Ciulla, J.B. (2004). Ethics: The heart of leadership. London: Praeger
For a shorter article Ciulla has a chapter by the same name in:
T. Maak, & N.M. Pless (Eds), Responsible leadership. London: Routledge (2006)
Joanne Ciulla has written widely on this topic - in this chapter she explores ethical
leadership and where this is positioned in the context of ‘mainstream’ leadership
theories such as transformational leadership. Other chapters in this book, including
case studies, provide food for thought on the issue of responsible leadership
Dunphy, D., Griffiths, A., & Benn, S. (2003). Organizational change for corporate
sustainability. London: Routledge
In this book the authors argue the case for corporation’s engagement in
sustainable enterprise and, drawing on examples, examine the challenges of
organizational change in the context of global sustainability
Ghoshal, S. (2005). Bad management theories are destroying good management
practices. Academy of Management Learning and Education, 4, 75-91
In this article Ghoshal explores management education with reference to recent
corporate misdeeds. Exploring both the pedagogical and research roles of business
schools he discusses whether issues of business conduct such as morality, ethics,
and social responsibility have been largely absent from management theories and
applied theory in management practice.
Henriques, A. (2005). CSR, sustainability and the Triple Bottom Line. In, A, Henriques & J,
Richardson (Eds), The Triple Bottom Line, does it all add up?: Assessing the sustainability
of business and CSR. London: Earthscan
The notion of the Triple Bottom Line – that organizations can deliver financial,
environment and social benefit (or more crudely - Profit, Planet & People) is now
well recognized. But clearly there may be tensions between the organization’s and
CEO’s legal duty to shareholders and taking an ethical or responsible approach to
leadership. The whole book explores many of the issues; in this chapter Henriques
examines whether the three core issues fully represent the field of sustainability
Ladkin, D. (2006). When deontology and utilitarianism aren’t enough: How Heidegger’s
notion of “Dwelling” might help organisational leaders resolve ethical issues. Journal of
Business Ethics, 65, 87-98
In this paper Ladkin demonstrates that a concern for ethics is not only complex but
can sometimes be difficult to apply to the context of organisational life. She
explores and offers an alternative approach to an ethical approach to leadership
Porter, M., & Kramer, M. (2003). The competitive advantage of corporate philanthropy. In
H. B. School (Ed.), Harvard Business Review on corporate social responsibility. Boston:
Harvard Business School Press
This volume draws together a number of CSR articles published in Harvard
Business Review; all are worthy of mention here. In their article Porter & Kramer
examine some of the underlying reasons for corporate philanthropy and then
consider how philanthropy can be more effectively, and sincerely, linked to an
organization's competitive strategy
