Behavioral Integrity as a Critical Ingredient for Transformational Leadership
MetadataShow full item record
Simons, Tony L.
Behavioral integrity is the perceived fit between espoused and enacted values. We propose that the maintenance of behavioral integrity is a highly problematic and consequential element of the successful management of change. Support for this view is drawn from the literatures on management fads, transformational leadership, trust and source credibility. Practical implications are developed.
