Recent discourse on modernizing leadership has often placed strong emphasis on values and ethics. This article elaborates challenges in leadership of large organizations, most notably in regards to appraisals of values-based leadership (VBL). It is proposed that if challenges are not identified, it would lead to unintended consequences, such as insignificant value-statements, inappropriate use of values and illegitimate leadership practices. The discussion deals with intra-organizational leadership challenges, namely changes in organizational structures and authority, participation, communication, image and perceptions, and integration of values.
