The paper addresses the theme of responsible and good governance founded on a moral and ethical-based leadership approach. Firstly, the work describes the theoretical framework paying specific attention to ethical leadership theories, responsible leadership and governance. Subsequently it presents the first results of an empirical analysis centered on exemplary case-studies relative to Italian companies, which are included among the best performing ones and have for years built a responsible orientation in their mission and governance models. Findings underline how coherent leadership models based on a positive moral perspective, authenticity, and integrity act in promoting a cultural reorientation inside and outside the company, valorizing relationships with stakeholders, favoring trust and fairness in the interactions with employees and collaborators, and allowing to establish effective models of governance based on the sharing of information, openness and democratic participation.

Abstract

The paper addresses the theme of responsible and good governance founded on a moral and ethical-based leadership approach. Firstly, the work describes the theoretical framework paying specific attention to ethical leadership theories, responsible leadership and governance. Subsequently it presents the first results of an empirical analysis centered on exemplary case-studies relative to Italian companies, which are included among the best performing ones and have for years built a responsible orientation in their mission and governance models. Findings underline how coherent leadership models based on a positive moral perspective, authenticity, and integrity act in promoting a cultural reorientation inside and outside the company, valorizing relationships with stakeholders, favoring trust and fairness in the interactions with employees and collaborators, and allowing to establish effective models of governance based on the sharing of information, openness and democratic participation.
