Some management experience helpful
At the beginning of this century, notorious corporate scandals led to the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and increased federal regulations. Today, we know significantly more about how these companies’ leaders behaved at the height of their fraudulent actions, creating a climate of fear and intimidation where other senior executives felt compelled to do whatever was necessary to “meet the numbers.”
Most people operate ethically most of the time. How is it that someone can coerce otherwise good people into taking unethical and even fraudulent actions? The answer lies in basic human nature and our need for security, achievement, significance and the many ways unethical or 'toxic' leaders can play on our anxieties and fears.
