Donna Boehme – Ethical Leadership – April 1, 2014
What caught my eye last week was the Wall Street Journal story that some UK banks, under fire from regulators for their “profit over ethics” culture, had hired a professor known as “Weirdy Beardy” to help them change all that.
Because everyone knows that when you want to change your firm culture, you go out and retain a 56-year old self-described “corporate philosopher,” right?
Reportedly part of Weirdy Beardy’s £660/hour methodology to improve how bankers behave at work involves sitting with executives and asking questions such as “Why do you exist?” and “Who are you?”
