Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The recent financial crisis has brought business ethics issues to the forefront.
While most colleges have formal training in business ethics, a person’s ethical
standards have often developed before college age. This application brief
proposes using digital popular media to teach servant-leadership principles to
public school adolescents. The purpose is to illustrate the advantage of using
secular content from the television series Merlin (Wilkie, 2008) to demonstrate an
ethics-based leadership perspective through a medium that is accessible to the
virtual/video generation.
