Prosocial Leadership 

The Majority of leadership development within organizations has one of three leadership development objectives: Performance Management, Succession Management   Organizational Change [1].  Each of these objectives has as the ultimate goal the enhancement of organizational strategy. Alternatively,  little attention is given to ethical considerations unless they are directly connected to organizational strategy. 

The resulting reality is that organizations train leaders to be effective at improving organizational objectives, and if ethical or prosocial behaviors do not directly pertain to or enhance organizational objectives, there may be little or no development commitments to ethical or prosocial leadership.
