As discussed in Topic 1, effective leaders apply various leadership tactics depending upon the contexts in which they find themselves. Consider the leadership tactics, traits, or models you find yourself drawn to as a leader. Discuss what elements you are drawn to regarding these particular tactics, traits, or models, including how they interconnect with your own personal, moral, ethical, or religious beliefs. Additionally, discuss whether you believe personal, moral, ethical, or religious beliefs of leaders can interfere with their ability to effectively lead and provide specific examples to support your reasoning.

Integrity entails being consistent and adhering to moral and ethical principles. Hence this aligns with my moral principles of being honest. When one is honest and upholds integrity, it indicates the individual’s characteristics and ability to lead. This is essential as it ensures that decisions are made based on information, providing the best judgments. I believe the leader’s personal, religious and moral beliefs affect the ability to lead. This is because when the actions are taken do not align with their personal beliefs, and the leaders cannot make the best decisions when leading. For example, in a situation where a leader must withhold information when making a deal, this may affect their ability to lead.
