Leaders have a responsibility to set an example in personal conduct for their followers. So, evidence of a leader's extra marital affair can lead to organizational conflict. Outcomes include complaints of favoritism by workers outside of the relationship, claims of sexual harassment, and decreased productivity of those involved in the office romance. Two recent investigations which led to proof of adultery and then loss of jobs headlined the news. The leader of the Central Intelligence Agency ( CIA ), Director David Petraeus resigned after an FBI inquiry into the use of one of his personal email accounts found that he was engaging in an extra marital affair. Actually, the Federal Bureau of Investigation ( FBI ) was investigating a harassment complaint against Paula Broadwell by another woman. Broadwell is Petraeus' biographer, and the email exchanges revealed that Patraeus and Broadwell were having an affair. General Patraeus resigned and wrote the following to his employees. "Yesterday afternoon, I went to the White House and asked the President to be allowed, for personal reasons, to resign from my position as D/CIA. After being married for over 37 years, I showed extremely poor judgment by engaging in an extramarital affair. Such behavior is unacceptable, both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours. This afternoon, the President graciously accepted my resignation." The other affair was at Lockheed Martin , the Pentagon's largest supplier. An internal whistleblower at Lockheed made the allegation. The investigation found that Christopher Kubasik, the President and future CEO had a close personal relationship with a subordinate employee, which is a violation Lockheed's code of ethics and business conduct. The subordinate employee has left the company. Kubasik said in a statement , "I regret that my conduct in this matter did not meet the standards to which I have always held myself." Both men knew of their organizations' strict relationship policies. What does it mean to adhere to a code of duty, integrity, and honor? If you were the manager, what would you do if you found out about an office romance?
