Christian Leadership and Followership in Ethical Organizational Culture
Discuss how both as Christian leaders and followers we are called to ethical behavior. How could those Christian leaders and follower behaviors influence the building of an ethical organizational culture? How might those behaviors and resulting cultures differ (or not) from those involving non-Christian from an ethical perspective? Incorporate the results of your Ethics Audit to discuss the principles within your organization or if not the member of an organization, use an organization with which you are familiar.
As always, be sure to incorporate course study material, personal worldview, experiences, observations, and reasoning principles from our textbooks as well as scriptural guidance. Support your thoughts with peer-reviewed scholarly journals. Be sure to review the Discussions Instructions document and grading rubric for additional assignment guidance.
