9 great leadership and virtue Source: “Good to Great”, Jim Collins, Random House, 2001

10  In “Good to Great”, Jim Collins and his team demonstrates that in Fortune 500 companies over 30 years, the most successful businesses outperformed the market by an average multiple of 6.9 for at least 15 years  “Good to Great” companies have leaders who –display moral virtues such as personal humility, fierce resolve (fortitude) and self-discipline (temperance) –put the interests of the wider business franchise first – before personal self-interest – i.e. personal accountability  “Good to Great” company employees generally shared and lived meaningful core values, not empty rhetoric or “wallpaper”. In other words, they focused on shared values, not cultural differences  The only bank is this group was Wells Fargo  The only US bank still with a AAA rating is Wells Fargo great leadership and virtue

11 what do we mean by “doing the right thing?” how do we develop a moral conscience?

12 You go to an ATM and instead of dispensing the €200 you keyed in, it dispenses €400 because the machine has been stacked with the wrong notes. Q. What would be the right thing to do and why? a.Keep the money because it’s the bank’s fault and besides you deserve a little payback for all those bank charges b.Return the money because it’s theft if I keep it and I might get traced and prosecuted c.Return the money because it belongs to the bank’s shareholders, like me, my family and my friends d.Return the money because honesty is a non-negotiable principle for me

13 a. Greed and fear - what’s right is what’s best for me

14 b. Rule Compliance - what’s right is doing what we’re told - don’t think, just obey

15 c. Social Conscience –what’s right is what’s best for others –friendship, empathy, kindness, altruism
