Abstract

Ethical leadership has been receiving a lot of attention lately due to the rise

in scandals, corruption and disasters which are present in every

organization. Many large business organizations are implementing ethical

culture and searching for leaders with a moral compass to lead. However,

developing countries like India, where small to medium enterprises form a

significant part of the economy do not have the benefit of formal leadership

and training. The research is a preliminary step in opening up avenues for

research in these topics.

The study reviews leadership theories along with ethical leadership and

organizational commitment and then proceeds to use quantative analysis

through descriptives to examine the relationship between ethical leadership

and organizational commitment in small to medium industries in India.

Finding in the study indicate that ethical leaders in such organizations have

a positive effect on the employees which in turn boosts their performance,

satisfaction and morale.
