What’s in a title? Overcoming a ‘crisis’ of CEO credibility

Tue, Aug 14, 2012|Filed in: Bookmarks|Topics: , , , |Comments Off on What’s in a title? Overcoming a ‘crisis’ of CEO credibility

From Knowledge@Wharton: What does the title of CEO mean these days, when the leaders of JPMorgan and Barclays Bank, among others, deny knowledge of scandals going on seemingly right under their noses? The issue is even being debated on the Presidential campaign trail, with some questioning Mitt Romney's responsibility for moves carried out at Bain Capital after he apparently no longer had a hand in day-to-day operations as the firm's chief executive. CEOs are mired in a "crisis of trust and credibility," according to one Wharton expert, and they have a lot of work to do in order to restore public and shareholder confidence. · Go to What’s in a title?

Letting go of pretense

Mon, Jun 6, 2011|Filed in: Bookmarks|Topics: , , , |Comments Off on Letting go of pretense

From ALIA Institute: In a new DVD on “Mindfulness and Authenticity” Alan Sloan shares his personal understanding of mindfulness as it applies in the context of authentic leadership. When Alan talks about dropping pretense and approaching meditation with a light touch, he speaks from hard-won experience. He first met his meditation teacher, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, in 1970. At the time Alan was an earnest spiritual seeker, with flowing long hair and white cotton clothes, and living in an ashram. He recalls, “My experience was that most ‘holy men’ were of the ethereal kind, individuals who radiated peace, love, light, and kindness, and who were far from earthy in either language or dress. I imagined that Trungpa Rinpoche would be a Tibetan version of this kind of spiritual guide—someone monkish and sweet.” Instead he encountered a “short, chubby, oriental gentleman” wearing street clothes, with an earthy sense of humor and a taste for Scotch. Nevertheless, Alan requested a private interview. He brought a gift of an orange and then waited for words of wisdom. · Go to Letting go of pretense →

From James Frey at BigThink: The truth will set me free… I don't care much about truth, or I don't care about the definition of truth that most people live by. I don't think truth and fact are the same thing. I think truth is an incredibly subjective individual thing. · Go to James Frey: The truth set me free →
