    The Moderating Role of Context in Determining Unethical Managerial Behavior: A Case Survey
    with Matthias Fuchs and Günter Stahl
    Journal of Business Ethics 153 (3): 793-812. 2018.
    We examine the moderating role of the situational and organizational contexts in determining unethical managerial behavior, applying the case-survey methodology. On the basis of a holistic, multiple-antecedent perspective, we hypothesize that two key constructs, moral intensity and situational strength, help explain contextual moderating effects on relationships between managers’ individual characteristics and unethical behavior. Based on a quantitative analysis of 52 case studies describing occ…Read more

    Drivers of Global CSR Integration and Local CSR Responsiveness: Evidence from Chinese MNEs
    with Michael A. Witt and Günter K. Stahl
    Business Ethics Quarterly 26 (3): 317-345. 2016.
    What drives Chinese MNEs’ global CSR integration and local CSR responsiveness? Drawing on institutional theory, we argue that both antecedents reflecting globally isomorphic patterns of adaptation and antecedents mirroring the distinct characteristics of China’s institutional context are relevant. We support our argument using fuzzy-set qualitative comparative analysis on a sample of 29 of China’s globally most influential companies. We find that state influence and global CSR associations affec…Read more

Yet conceptual views on responsible leadership differ in their definitions and theoretical foundations. This study attempts to reconcile these diverse views and uncover the phenomenon from a business leader’s point of view. Based on rational egoism theory, this article proposes a formal mathematical model of responsible leadership that considers different types of incentives for stakeholder…Read more

    Responsible Leadership: A Mapping of Extant Research and Future Directions
    with Mark E. Mendenhall
    Journal of Business Ethics 148 (1): 117-134. 2018.
    Recently, the increasing interest in responsible leadership (RL) has produced a research field rich in theoretical and conceptual potential, with diverse research foci, theoretical foundations, and methodological approaches. While these developments have demarcated the field from other leadership-oriented disciplines, they have equally courted fragmentation and ambiguity in terms of the field’s positioning within the greater body of leadership studies. To map the theoretical, methodological, and…Read more
