This paper examines how leadership plays a vital role in corporate communication and accountability. It also explores how a culture based on values is able to communicate across the organizational structure effectively and that the failure of communication can lead to criminal behaviour and the downfall of the company, using the HealthSouth Corporation as an example.

Communication and Leadership

From the Paper:

"For a future at HealthSouth, strong leadership based on values will remain key. This type of leadership involved a certain level of emotional intelligence where feelings of powerful do not become overwhelming. Of course if leadership and responsibility are equally shared, then power will be as well. The key to effective leadership does not come from charisma but from integrity and sharing information. Hughes (2004) writes an effective leader will have impact upon their team and this is "apparent in the growing interest over the past decade in topics like the leader's genuineness, authenticity, credibility and trustworthiness" (p. 3). A leader's reflection of these attributes is found in their level of connectedness with employees. As a result leaders are more interested in mentoring and training their team rather than focusing on output of numbers or turn around time. These qualities are a good indicator for selecting a potential manager. This development in team building allows for "providing people opportunities to learn from their work rather than taking them away from their work to learn" (Hughes 4). "
