Human interest about the ethics of leaders goes back to ancient times. Historical notes are full of descriptions of good and bad leaders, good and bad led nations, strong and weak presidents. Despite the huge number of biographical notes on great leaders and their morale, there is a small number of studies related to the basics of ethics leaders. Even in the literature in the field of management, which is primarily designed for practice, there is a small number of books intended for ethics leaders. The leadership includes values and the person who wants to be a leader can not be a good leader without being aware of his own values. Considering the fact that leadership has a moral dimension, leaders need to be aware of the way that ethics shape their leadership.
This paper reviews the ethics of leadership, tries to answer the question why ethics is key for leadership and present the five principles of ethical leadership: respect, helpfulness, fairness, honesty and unity.

Key words: ethics, leadership, leaders, followers.
