Read Chapter 5, “Values, Ethics, and Character” in our textbook. As you read, reﬂect on how a leader can eﬀectively inﬂuence an organization’s commitment to ethics, values, and moral behavior. In that chapter, the authors refer to the research of Rushworth Kidder, who identiﬁed four ethical dilemmas that are common to our personal and organizational experience, including three principles for resolving ethical dilemmas.( please see summary of chapter)

Review the article Making Business Virtuous.
While the 2.4 Assessment is not required, you are encouraged to access the questions, engage with the material, and assess your knowledge about Virtuous Business before moving on to instructions 6–9.

How is Servant Leadership related to Virtuous Business?
Describe your personal experiences with one or more of the ethical dilemmas described by Kidder and how they were resolved or should have been resolved.
How can an ethical and values-driven corporate culture inﬂuence the eﬀective outcome of ethical dilemmas, and what is the leader’s responsibility in developing that culture?
