Values, Ethics, Fiduciary Duty, and the Re-education of Americas CEOs
Our study asked what topics should be emphasized in a one-week seminar for newly names CEOs. Good corporate citizenship requires that companies adopt policies that avoid wide scale layoffs, but in an intensely competitive global economy this is too frequently the result. Besides effective corporate strategy, ethical issues, corporate culture, and especially fiduciary duty need to be emphasized in such a seminar.
