Decision-making is embedded in the intersection between ethics and leadership. Based on leading research in the area, Brown and his colleagues deﬁne ethical leadership as “the demonstration of normatively appropriate conduct through personal actions and interpersonal relationships, and the promotion of such conduct to followers through two-way communication, reinforcements, and decision-making”(Brownet al. 2005, p. 120).

It is important to note that moral management stands in contrast to not only immoral management, but amoral management. Amoral managers that simply fail to recognize the moral components of decision-making in organizations can do so intentionally or unintentionally.

Leaders are seen as moral persons when they demonstrate certain traits, behaviors, and decision-making patterns. Critical traits include integrity, trustworthiness, and honesty.
