Question;Learning Activity #1;Ethical leadership is a subject that scholars have debated for;years. Is all leadership, by definition, ethical or is it possible to have;unethical leadership?;Download the article from the link below;;In it, I argue that ethical leadership is made up of two;components, an ethical leadership process and and ethical leadership objective.;Study the article and then respond to the following;Pick a famous leader whom you believe is or was either ethical or;unethical. Argue your case in the discussion post using the criteria set forth;in the article above. Make sure you discuss both the leadership process;employed and the ethicality of the leader?s objectives.;Learning Activity #2;This week?s material covers the perils of groupthink;overcommitment and avoidance of failure, and the concept of a premortem, an;analysis of potential failure scenarios before embarking upon a project or;activity. The following podcast touches on all of these topics and attempts to;make the case that failing early is good and avoiding failure at all cost is;unhealthy. In addition, it applies market based economics to the prediction of;failure in a novel way.;Premortems are becoming increasingly popular and, in fact;a formal method for conducting them and prioritizing risks has been developed.;Failure Mode Effects Analysis was originally designed to allow engineers to;predict failures in complex systems and to prioritize the risks to allow them;to be reduced in an orderly and cost effective manner. It has now been widely;applied to other situations where a premortem makes sense, such as in the management;of complex projects. Read the short tutorial at the following link;;Then, identify a significant project or process where you are employed;and use the technique to conduct an FMEA. Use an Excel spreadsheet to show the;various failure modes, severities, and probability of detection and their;associated ranking numbers. Sort them into descending order of RPN, and then;propose actions that can be taken to remove or control each risk.
