What have you learned?

Last week, I shared a review of a book and then followed that up later in the week by asking you share the best books you’ve read this year so far.  This week, I shared some of the recurring leadership lessons I’ve been reminded of in 2016, so of course I am going to ask you to share the most valuable lessons on leadership you’ve learned this year!  Please share in the comment box below.

  1. As a Christian, I thought everything was black and white with some little gray areas. However, as a PhD student in Leadership:OD. I read the book Ethics, the Heart of Leadership edited by Joanne B. Ciulla (2014). I learned that leadership has ethics. In as much as my faith in Jesus Christ is the foundation for my leadership, there are ethical issues where I have to be a “moral saint” characterized by concern for others rather than a “religious saint” where my concern is only from the point of complete devotion to God. For example, what do I do as a leader when a woman is 7 months pregnant, her life and the baby’s is in danger and only one can be saved so the other can live. The husband therefore is forced to make a decision to save only one life. As a leader who is against abortion, I have to become a moral saint in this case. The mother’s life is saved so she can be blessed and bear children even though the unborn baby has to be aborted.
