FLORES SANDI, Grettchen. Administrative therapeutic alternative for the "moral homicide". Med. leg. Costa Rica [online]. 2005, vol.22, n.2, pp.75-80. ISSN 2215-5287.

Leadership, as a gift of service, supposes that working skills in directing human resources requires specialized training. Nevertheless, there are situational, organizational and individual factors that favor some kind of authoritarism, such as moral harassment by those who occupy authoritative places. Preventing and treating this organizational pathology must be a priority in modern day organizations, given the loss of positive economic results and the diminishment of the competitivity that this generates. Some therapeutical alternatives stated are: construction of a shared vision and common genuine values, reflexive openness, training and transparency of working relations.

Keywords : moral harassment; administrative alternative; authority; organizational competitivity; situational, organizational, and individual factors; moral leadership.
