Abstract


It has been suggested that the leaders ability to foment or lead an organization in a moral way while taking advantage of the opportunities of the present business age, can promote trustworthiness, influence emotional intelligence which can drive long-term organization commitment, work engagement and positive organizational citizenship behavior. The extent to which these notions are generally applicable is a major research gap especially in the context of countries such as Pakistan where healthcare employees face myriad of problems in their quest to serve humanity. This study sampled hospital employees in selected healthcare facilities in Lahore in the Southern part of Pakistan. Predesigned questionnaires were administered to procure the required data for analysis. Our study confirms the extant literature that employees develop greater emotional intelligence such as stronger capacity to be self-conscious when they have ethically conscious leaders behind them. They are disposed to recognize who they are and carve a career path that suits their personality as they draw inspiration and guidance from the ethical leader.
