This research study highlights the critical significance of ethical leadership within organizations and business institutions, particularly considering the increasing number of scandals that have occurred across various sectors. The researcher's motivation to investigate the need for ethical leadership stems from the widespread concerns surrounding unethical leadership, which has garnered significant attention due to scandals in both business organizations and religious institutions. Numerous studies have concluded that ethical leaders are characterized by their fairness, balanced decision-making, honesty, kindness, and principled behaviour. These leaders not only establish clear ethical standards but also utilize incentives and punishments to foster compliance. Moreover, ethical leaders consistently engage their followers in discussions about ethics.
