(p.177) Conclusion
Ethics and Organizational Leadership

A number of themes already identified in previous chapters are reiterated and synthesized. The morally generative potential within these themes is highlighted, while attention is also drawn to moral concerns that each raises. It is suggested that a normative model of ethical leadership will involve capitalizing on the morally generative potential within each theme whilst remaining sensitive to its ethical downsides. Furthermore, it is proposed that the style of leadership that is best placed to achieve this is a facilitative style, which resonates with an intersubjectivist meta-ethic and the Mediator of Communication ideal type. Some challenges associated with implementing such an approach in contemporary, Western organizational contexts are identified, amongst which conventional managerialist expectations of leadership figure prominently. Nevertheless, some enablers are also identified, which aspiring facilitative leaders might build upon to implement such an approach.
