  These Leaders Get the Respect They Deserve
Leaders at all levels, both in the public and private sectors, are more vulnerable to forces beyond their control, including those that come from the bottom up.
It means that leaders, aware of the newly precarious nature of their situation, are likely to develop a management style more attuned to the needs and wishes of their followers.
Moreover, the sins for which leaders are being made to pay range from the private and personal to the public and professional, from those that are about matters of style to those that are about matters of substance, and from those that are merely mistakes to those that are crimes against humanity.

 Global Exchange : "Most Wanted" Corporate Human Rights Violators of 2005
Corporations carry out some of the most horrific human rights abuses of modern times, but it is increasingly difficult to hold them to account.
Economic globalization and the rise of transnational corporate power have created a favorable climate for corporate human rights abusers, which are governed principally by the codes of supply and demand and show genuine loyalty only to their stockholders.

 Kennedy School Op-Ed: Barbara Kellerman: These Leaders Get the Respect They Deserve
The signs of change are everywhere — in the academy and in the boardroom, in the courts and in the streets, at home and abroad.
There is no good or obvious reason why, for example, Radovan Karadzic and Ratko Mladic — Bosnian Serb leaders charged a decade ago with "genocide, crimes against humanity, and violations of the laws or customs of war" — remain at large.
But information about all leaders who are in any serious way ineffective or immoral is disseminated more aggressively than ever before — and this in a global context in which the traditional respect for authority is on the decline.
