skills ethical leaders

In times of uncertainty, especially when the stakes are high, people look to their leaders with a greater sense of urgency and expectation.

Because these times tend to make us feel afraid, we often expect our leaders to do whatever it takes to guarantee our safety and survival – whether in terms of physical health, economic wellbeing or providing some sense of assurance about what the future holds.

However, leaders need to be careful about the ways they provide for these needs. Crisis leadership needs to be about preserving more than just safety and certainty – it needs to be about preserving our moral character, too. This isn’t easy to do, but there are some basic skills leaders can aim to develop that will help them practice a more ethical form of leadership. And these are the same skills we should be looking for when we’re deciding who deserves to lead us in times of crisis.
