Does the end justify the means? Assuming the responsibility of leadership, a leader also assumes the ethical boundaries that accompany it. Many leaders have relied on illegal or unethical tactics to achieve their goals. For this assignment, use the Internet to find 2 articles that discuss the decision of the same leader of an organization that was considered illegal or unethical by the authors. Your articles should be found online in the popular press or a professional journal. Be sure to apply the material from your text to your discussion.
For your first post, describe the key points of each article and detail why the author of the article found it illegal or unethical. Evaluate the leader’s ethical awareness or standards, (apply the course material). This discussion will be at least 300 words. (Be sure to reference your articles in APA format).
When someone indicates that they are involved in a conflict, what do you think? Do you think that they are dealing with a negative situation?

Watch this interesting TedTalk Dare to disagree by Margaret Heffernan before you post to the discussion board.
