Leadership and ethics (one page)
Select a current news item pertaining to an ethical situation in the Middle East that has arisen in a business or non-profit organization. Describe the situation and the organization. Ethics can be very ambiguous based on many variables. What are some of these variables that your analysis was based upon? Explain how you would have handled the situation if you were the leader of the organization. Suggest ways that leadership could have prevented this situation from happening.
Embed course material concepts, principles and theories (require supporting citations) along with at least one scholarly, peer-reviewed journal article.
Keep in mind that these scholarly references can be found in the Saudi Digital Library by conducting an advanced search specific to scholarly references.
You need to reply to at least two peer discussion question post answers to this weekly discussion question. These post replies need to be substantial and constructive in nature. They should add to the content of the post and evaluate/analyze that post answer. Normal course dialogue doesn’t fulfill these two peer replies but is expected throughout the course. Answering all course questions is also required.
