Few leaders can compare to Martin Luther King Jr.–to this day, he remains a role model for effective and ethical leadership. In his paper “Distinguished Scholar Invited Essay: Reflections on the Role of Character in Business Education and Student Leadership Development,” published in Journal of Leadership & Organizational Studiesauthor Thomas A. Wright explains why leadership education should include more character studies of leaders like Martin Luther King Jr., who exemplified positive leadership characteristics.

The abstract:

JLOS_72ppiRGB_powerpointThe study of character is a legitimate and beneficial topic for organizational analysis. Through the lens of character and character-based leadership, and incorporating the 3-H (“head,” “heart,” and “hands”) approach to knowledge generation and dissemination, my reflections are provided to engage the Journal of Leadership & Organizational Studies readership on how character can be used to provide our students as well as ourselves with a more meaningful business education experience.
