Value driven leaders today are often tasked with leading under the supervision of a contrasting valueless leader. From leaders who blatantly disregard their values, to those who must choose between the bottom-line and values, valueless leaders are frequently in charge. Through the author’s own personal experience of a Congressional scandal and resignation, the timeliness of value-led leadership in a value-less environment is explored. By understanding the emotional implications of value-less leadership, facilitating forgiveness to the value-less leader, making organizational “members,” rather than employees, and truly loving followers, value-led leaders can effectively adhere to their values and utilize them to positively influence the organization.
