Recently, I reviewed the findings of four studies on leadership. In total, 3,207 executives were asked to identify traits common to successful leaders. Communications, human relations, and planning/goal setting were prominent on each of the four surveys. A surprising omission to me was that none of the lists included words such as ethical, value driven, honest. Would behavioral health executives have answered the question differently? Does our daily attention to compliance and ethical clinical practice make us more inclined to honest management—or are we at risk of becoming self-satisfied because our deliverables are so highly regulated? Do the ever-accelerating financial pressures of our industry make us more vulnerable to 'Enron-esque' ethical failures than in the past?
