Immortalized on canvas and in marble, the images of George Washington as either general or president portray an air of confidence and authority. Virtually deified in his own lifetime, Washington was regarded as the pinnacle of American military and political leadership, largely due to his unwavering character and devotion to the nation. Washington was keenly aware that he played an important part on the world stage and consciously rooted his deeds and decisions with strong ethics and honor. In his official and symbolic position, he realized that every decision could affect countless others. He held himself to a high moral standard and he expected the same of those he led.
Washington's evolution as an ethical leader defined civility during an uncivil period, as he showed how one person's example and deeds can make an enormous difference. This case will examine Washington's development as an ethical leader to include how honor, virtue, and morals influence leadership.
