Leader behavioral integrity is defined as follower’s perceived pattern of alignment between a leader’s words and deeds. Behavior integrity is an adjunctive virtue which is neither morally good nor morally bad in nature, but is necessary for achieving moral uprightness. To measure leader behavioral integrity, two kinds of methods, namely written scenario or scales, are usually used by researchers in empirical studies. And leadership behavioral integrity is separately designed as dependent, independent, mediator or moderator variables by researchers in their theoretical models. Future research should focus on developing multiple methods to measure leader behavioral integrity, examining the moderating effect of institutional factors between leader behavioral integrity and resulting variables. And it should also focus on leader’s word-deed misalignments, the application of the concept of behavioral integrity to collective level or employee level, and so on.
