Abstract

Makes a necessary and rarely touted distinction as to moral or “good” leadership versus amoral leadership. The most common textbook definitions of business leadership are lacking, because of their lack of a moral stance. Re‐emphasizes the important distinction between a manager and a leader, which has been revealed in great depth by many authors earlier. Discusses and gives form to the most important and agreed‐on characteristics or attributes of leadership, many of which are inseparable from “goodness”. Addresses the issue of whether these attributes can be learned and developed, or are inherent at birth. Concludes that good leadership has a moral foundation and that leadership skills can be learned.
