5L-5, Manning, Susan Schissler, Ethical Leadership in Human Services: A Multi-Dimensional Approach * / This book provides a multidimensional approach to ethical leadership in human services. Practical and theoretical perspectives integrated throughout the book help leaders consider the complexity of moral and ethical quandaries, rather than provide prescriptions or answers. A framework for decision-making includes the necessary components for an ethical reasoning process. The book then turns to the theoretical and practical implications of building ethical organizations and discusses organizational culture, climate, and structure as concrete entities that can be shaped to enhance the ethical policies and practices of the organization. For professional leaders, corporate managers, and students who wish to be leaders in human services.
