How Integrity Can Save Your Company (and the World)

How Integrity Can Save Your Company (and the World) | The Course of Integrity | Scoop.it
Among all the complex reasons cited for why the economy has gone south, here's one that might seem a tad simplistic: Integrity.

 

But almost every problem can be traced to a lack of integrity, which can determine everything from how individuals make decisions to how CEOs lead companies, according to economist and retired Harvard Business School professor Michael Jensen.

 

Jensen, known as one of the 1970s pioneers of “agency theory” – which is used to explain the conflicts of interest that arise when executive and shareholder interests are not aligned – has spent the last eight years studying integrity. Much of his research, along with co-author Werner Erhard, is expected to be published in the book “A Positive Theory of the Normative Virtues,” due out in 2014.

 

He recently spoke with The Wall Street Journal about why he thinks integrity is now more important than ever. Edited excerpts:

 

WSJ: What is integrity?

 

Jensen: People have spent thousands of years talking about integrity, and it’s gotten us nowhere. My colleague and I have spent eight years rigorously defining the concept of integrity. One reason our world is such a mess is that people see integrity as a virtue, as something that’s good and admirable. But integrity is a purely positive phenomenon, like gravity. It’s honoring one’s word.

 

WSJ: Why the big deal now?

 

Jensen: It’s always been a big deal, but the costs have been more lately.

 

WSJ: Why isn’t integrity a virtue?

 

Jensen: When you think about it as a virtue, it then occurs to you that it’s an option. When you look at integrity that way, you’re much more likely to give it up in order to gain something, like wealth, power or admiration from others. But if you take it on, you’ll find incredible things happen in your life. You become instantly trustworthy and people will become loyal. I’m not saying you should do it because it’s virtuous; you should do it because it’s in your own self interest.

 

WSJ: You’ve said integrity is relevant to the financial crisis. How so?

 

Jensen: Which scandal do you want to talk about? It’s at the core. It’s involved in millions of ways. Look at the manipulation of LIBOR. Literally, your paper [The Wall Street Journal] every day is full of the consequences of out-of-integrity behavior. And those consequences, by the way, are always bad.

 

WSJ: So does J.P. Morgan JPM +1.06%’s recent ‘London Whale’ fiasco show a lack of integrity?

 

Jensen: That’s not as clear. That’s a situation where something went wrong inside J.P. Morgan. Their control systems broke down; they were badly designed, implemented, and probably used for something they weren’t designed for.

 

WSJ: How would integrity apply to a CEO?

 

Jensen: For earnings, a CEO should say, ‘If I give you all the evidence that our earnings are $500 million, you will come to the same conclusion.’ It eliminates all kind of gaming. When you behave this way, people will end up trusting you.

Paradox and Enlightenment in Zen Dialogue and Phenomenological Description

Paradox and Enlightenment in Zen Dialogue and Phenomenological Description | The Course of Integrity | Scoop.it

Via Jan Bergmans
more...
Jan Bergmans's curator insight, January 16, 2013 2:59 PM

  But the insight that the Zen dialogue seeks to offer is not at the common sense level of ordinary linguistic usage. And it is precisely the first step toward enlightenment to realize that the paradox is valid only as long as one remains at the common sense level of understanding. The Zen koan uses language not to refer but as a tool or a

dialectical process for revealing a very deep ontological structure by means of or in virtue of the incongruity of the surface semantic structure of the paradoxes in reference to a standard framework of reference

The Atomism of Democritus

The Atomism of Democritus
Doug Ross's insight:

Some people believe that living beings, or animals, or perhaps just human beings, are distinct from other composite bodies -- they claim that besides the minute bodies that make up any visible body, these beings, or some of them, possess something that survives death. The atomist view is that this is unlikely. Animals, of course, do possess something which rocks lack--they possess life and breath; but in the atomist view this "soul" is nothing more than a special very small, fast-moving group of atoms that operate within the living being and help it sense and act upon its environment. Human beings, of course, have the power of thought, but in the atomist view thought is nothing but a special way of being alive and an animal.

The Course of Integrity™ develops integrity in people who want it. Integrity develops in the unique circumstances of each person’s life as they become more present in moment. They see reality differently. This creates new learning which results in new behaviors.

The Course of Integrity™ is a fresh, new approach to change that is captured in a personal code of conduct for success that is built on authenticity, practicality, efficiency, transparency and accountability. The course is 8-12 weeks long involving one hour on line coaching sessions.
