Summary

A lack of congruency on the part of many leaders results in diminished effectiveness, if not outright failure. The soundness of a person in authority is an essential characteristic for potency as a leader. Irrespective of what system of ethical thought is proposed, effectiveness for leaders only comes from a stream of thought that demonstrates a congruency among beliefs, core values, demonstrated behavior, and truth. This paper reports on a study of some theories over the years that relate to the topic of leadership effectiveness. Included in this study is Senge's bestseller "The Fifth Dimension" in which he proposes that "personal mastery" starts internally and even serves as a spiritual foundation. This need to move toward a higher moral path, which in turn invites others to follow, is consistent with Lao-tzu and Confucius. Anderson's "Leadership Skills Inventory" is discussed to identify qualities of personal mastery of leaders. Thomas Kuhn's "The Structure of Scientific Revolutions" and Stephen R. Covey's "The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People" talk about the "Aha!" experience when someone sees reality in a different way, and they make a needed paradigm shift. Works by Bower, Blanchard and Peale, Seibert, and Covey discuss core values that serve to provide direction. Finally, the study explores difficulties in agreeing about what are acceptable, universal truths, using Ken Blanchard and Norman Vincent Peale's work "The Power of Ethical Management." (Contains 12 footnotes.) (DFR)
