Eco Leadership Qualities in NGOs
The discussion also presents the four qualities of eco-leadership and creates a link with various organizational and leadership theories. The connectivity and interdependence of eco-leadership are discussed with its relation to the administrative organization theory. The discussion of the linkage between the two illustrates the approach by Fayol in explaining how leaders ought to perform duties to achieve organizational goals. The quality of systematic ethics about ethical operation about environmental conversation and human realm is also discussed in detail. This quality focuses on the moral sanity and integrity of leaders in performing duties. Therefore, a Global Non-Governmental Organization like the United Nations deploying eco-leadership system in their operation would look like an organization ecosystem which constitutes of the interconnected, linked, and interdependent systems such as social, economic, financial, political, natural, cultural and global systems within a broader ecosystem the NGO (Pugh, & Pugh, 1971).
The four qualities of the eco-leadership theory are discussed illustratively about specific leadership and organization theories. Connectivity and Interdependence The organization NGO leadership is built around the network, linkage, and the connectivity that is created by the society which has engineered the social relations and relationships in organizations and as well acknowledges interdependence from each other and from the natural environment. The kind of eco-leadership is designed to create connections, networks, webs within the organization linking factions, structures, forms, systems into interconnected systems that function as one unit in a global ecosystem. The leadership and leaders are trained to operate differently in such a way as to promote the connection and interdependent systems to work in a new and unique way.
Systemic Ethics The focus according to the quality of ethics in the Eco-leadership system is to function and operate ethically in the human realm and embed the environmental conservation and protection policies in their order. Ethics are the personal, entity moral sanity and principles that instrumental in decision making, leading, and technically managing both the internal and external functionality of the organization (Walumbwa, Morrison, & Christensen, 2012). The eco-leadership system is interested in systematic ethics where the NGO leaders and administration as a whole extends beyond the scope of NGO values as well as the leader's values which assumes the external environmental issues such as social responsibility, ecological sustainability, pollution control, and poverty in the proximity of their operations. The ethical values that the NGO focuses on in the ecosystem encompass accountability, diversity, integrity, equality, fairness in leadership, quality, morality among other instrumental moral values that cultivate positive impact in the organization ecosystem structure (Western, 2013).
The aspects of being concerned with the external environment, social responsibility, accountability to all shareholders and stakeholders, and the environment improve the image and reputation of the NGO like the United Nations has built its reputation globally because of embracing ethical values among other elements. The aspects of human relationships, beauty, religious foundations, values and beliefs, and the connection between humanity and the super or natural world, such as God and humanity. Moreover, the human spirit is vital in leadership and builds the behavioral aspects and personality shaping that are crucial to role assignment in the organization. In the same way, the neoclassical organization theory emphasizes the issues surrounding the welfare of the workforce, the human resource, the people in the organization.
