EasyChair Preprint no. 13703

15 pagesDate: June 18, 2024


This abstract explores the principle of universalizability in deontologism and its application to leadership decision-making. Deontologism is an ethical theory that emphasizes moral obligations and duties, focusing on the intention behind actions. The principle of universalizability states that an action is morally acceptable if its underlying principle can be applied consistently and universally. In leadership decision-making, this principle is vital in ensuring ethical choices are made. Leaders must consider the broader impact of their decisions, aiming for consistency and fairness while balancing individual and collective interests. By prioritizing moral obligations and duties, leaders can make decisions that align with universalizable principles. This abstract also discusses case studies illustrating the application of the principle to real-world leadership scenarios, as well as challenges and limitations that may arise. Ultimately, the principle of universalizability provides leaders with a framework for ethical decision-making, fostering a sense of responsibility and accountability in their roles.
