By Michael Lodge, Greenville, SC: When leaders choose to withhold information, evade communication, and disregard the truth, the essence of effective leadership is lost, paving the way for an ethical problem. Transparent and honest communication is the cornerstone of successful leadership, fostering trust, accountability, and cooperation. When leaders fail to uphold these principles, they not only undermine their own credibility but also erode public trust and confidence. Without open and truthful communication, leaders become disconnected from the needs and concerns of those they are meant to serve, leading to a breakdown in effective decision-making and problem-solving. Ultimately, the absence of genuine leadership characterized by a commitment to communication and truthfulness reflects an ethical deficit, jeopardizing the welfare and progress of individuals and communities alike.
