Moral leadership is the act of being transparent, corrupt free, responsible and living up to your duties. It is the act of showing dire commitment to one’s political affiliation without a trace of ego- centrism.

MorallyIncorrect/Misnomer Car Bumper ?

The attempt to define moral leadership becomes an uphill task because what is considered moral differs from the perspectives of different individuals and is determined by the society. Thus, what is considered moral in one society can be considered immoral in another.

#Cyberpeacefare Fleeting Moments/Opportunities/DataInundation

It seems to me, a cyberpeacecitizen, that many important fleeting messages/expositions on "world peace and planet survival" are lost or "deadended" in social media because of fleeting opportunity of conscientious instant action or just "indifference" of fellow citizens of the world to re-tweet/comment ?

Further, the deluge of social media data from millions/billions of sources requires collaboration/ synchronicity of sources to achieve most important messages going viral. …

Moral leadership- an elixir for sustaining civilizations

In today’s era, moral leadership has perhaps become one of the most glaring examples of academic oxymoron. Once was the time when the leaders were looked upon as apostles of high moral integrity and credibility. However, of late, with ever escalating number of cases of unethical conduct of leaders in political and business arena, common man is left to ponder whether moral leadership really exists on the planet.…

What Does Moral Leadership Mean to You?

In a century like this, I was surprised or maybe the word shocked is more correct in this situation, to see the topic of this contest advertised on the Net. Nowadays a lot of people are discussing, speaking, thinking, and defining “leadership, leadership skills” and all collocations related to this topical word. But related to moral that’s a different story.

Who is thinking or speaking about moral today?!!!

To be honest, I have thought that this word disappeared from our active…

what does moral leadership mean to you?
