How CEOs Lose Their Way (2 HRS)

User Avatar

What are the factors that cause CEOs to become self-serving, often to the detriment of their employees and shareholders?  Why do they abandon their ethical values and resort to fraudulent activity?  Scientific studies have shown that as CEOs rise in organizations, they become accustomed to wealth, seek endless amounts of power, and lose the ability to empathize with others.  These behaviors set an organizational culture where each person learns to prioritize their personal needs over the needs of the business organization.  (2 hrs)
