Impact of Ethical Leadership on Employee Job Performance

Abstract
Despite the growing concern of researchers in the field of business ethics, cases of unethical practices have continue to manifest in corporate organisations. Corporate leaders engage in decisions that have resulted to lack of trust in the organisations leadership; and lack of commitment to organisation’s goals. This paper tries to examine the concept of ethical leadership, the characteristics of an ethical leader, ethical leadership and its impact on employee job performance and how organisations can develop leaders that are not only sound in character but sound in action. Corporate business leaders are expected to be persons of “strong characters” and serve as role models to their employees; which without, the organisation’s goals may be undermined. Two important variables; trust and commitment were discussed for better understanding of ethical leadership and employee job performance. The study concludes with some suggestions from the literature.
