Employees have feelings, attitudes, values, moods and emotions which when directed in the desired manner leads to organizational effectiveness. One of the foremost contributions of a manger is leadership, because all organizations thrive on human resource as a vital factor. Success of a leader or ability to undertake risk management is an epitome of organization and its behavior, characterized by the leader, group and structure. Organizational environment thus created has evolved a dynamic condition which has given rise to a relatively innovative concept “Responsible leadership” considering maturity level of the group. This is not a theoretical framework but an approach to leadership. Responsible leadership advances the existing definitions of leadership and this research proposes to analyze the impact on organizational behavior.
