Business and Responsible Leadership: Ethics After Enron

Much corporate literature today discusses empowering employees to make decisions, raise issues, and act as leaders. But occasionally, one could argue, the empowerment gets out of hand: Witness Enron run amok. Why is it important to build an "empowered" organization? How does management create and instill its own set of values? What practices can help build an organization that looks beyond the legal requirements of compliance toward a set of values? Who represents the conscience of the corporation? Panel includes David I. Greenberg, Paul F. Anderson, and Leigh G. Hafrey.

Festival: 2006
