Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of ethical leadership on employees' behaviors (deviant behavior and personal initiative) and to explore the moderating roles of self-efficacy and trust in leader in the relationship between ethical leadership and employees' behaviors. This study developed four hypotheses and tested them using regression and hierarchical regression analyses. The results showed that the negative relationship between ethical leadership and deviant behavior and the positive relationship between ethical leadership and personal initiative were statistically supported. And this study found that self-efficacy and trust in leader played moderating roles in the relationship between ethical leadership and employees' behaviors. Based on the findings of the study, this study presented managerial implications and suggestions for future studies.
