Psychology Of Fraud: Why Good People Do Bad Things : #TheFraudTube

Psychology Of Fraud: Why Good People Do Bad Things : #TheFraudTube | Leadership Failures | Scoop.it

Enron, Worldcom, Bernie Madoff, the sub-prime mortgage crisis.

Over the past decade or so, news stories about unethical behavior have been a regular feature on TV, a long, discouraging parade of misdeeds marching across our screens. And in the face of these scandals, psychologists and economists have been slowly reworking how they think about the cause of unethical behavior.

In general, when we think about bad behavior, we think about it being tied to character: Bad people do bad things. But that model, researchers say, is profoundly inadequate.

The Wreck of the Costa Concordia

The Wreck of the Costa Concordia | Leadership Failures | Scoop.it

"On the night of Friday, January 13, the luxury cruise ship Costa Concordia, with more than 3,200 passengers and 1,000 crew members on board, struck a reef, keeled over, and partially sank off Isola del Giglio, Italy. Six people are now confirmed dead, including two French passengers and one Peruvian crew member, apparently after jumping into the chilly Mediterranean waters after the wreck. Fourteen more people still remain missing, as search and rescue teams continue their efforts to find survivors. The incident occurred only hours into the cruise, and passengers had not yet undergone any lifeboat drills -- that plus the severe list of the ship made evacuation chaotic and frightening. Captain Francesco Schettino has been arrested on suspicion of involuntary manslaughter, causing a shipwreck and abandoning ship. Gathered here are images of the Costa Concordia, as efforts are still underway to find the fourteen passengers that remain missing."

Paterno Family Statement Blames Everyone But Joe Paterno, Who Is To Blame

Paterno Family Statement Blames Everyone But Joe Paterno, Who Is To Blame | Leadership Failures | Scoop.it

Via Deadspin:

 

The family of Joe Paterno has released a statement in response to the Freeh Report, declaring (preliminarily, pending a close reading) that the "underlying facts...are almost entirely consistent with what we understood them to be."

 

"Joe Paterno wasn't perfect," the family wrote. But he was a victim of "a great deceiver," and to whatever extent the head coach may have failed to report Jerry Sandusky's misdeeds, it was because "many people didn't fully understand what was happening and underestimated or misinterpreted events."

 

Many people, they say. This rhetorical device appears again and again in the statement: Sandusky "fooled everyone"....Paterno "should have pushed his superiors"...."Joe Paterno and everyone else." Joe Paterno—the indispensable head coach, he of the heroic bronze statue outside Beaver Stadium—was merely one body in a vast, confused, plural crowd.

 

The only way to keep believing in the Great Man, at this point, is to deny his importance. Here's how the statement winds up...

When Leadership Fails

When Leadership Fails | Leadership Failures | Scoop.it
Leadership failures happen more often than we would like to admit, especially when it is our fault. Jeremy Statton shares five steps to take when it does.

 

"“What if” is not necessarily a bad question. But instead of asking “what if those leading me were better,” we should ask, “what if I had responded to poor leadership better?”

Just because we suffer under someone’s mistakes does not mean we have to suffer. Even in tough circumstances, we choose how we respond.

 

How we respond to the leadership failures of others gives us the opportunity to be true leaders by the example we set in our response."

Leading During a Crisis: 7 Lessons From The Costa Concordia Disaster

Leading During a Crisis: 7 Lessons From The Costa Concordia Disaster | Leadership Failures | Scoop.it

Since the luxury passenger cruiser Costa Concordiasank off the Tuscan coast last Friday, the media have been screaming accusations against its captain for abandoning ship while many passengers were still on board. Captain Francesco Schettino’s somewhat bizarre explanation that he didn’t intend to abandon the ship but that he “slipped and fell into a lifeboat while helping passengers” did not add to his credibility or defence. In the eyes of millions around the globe he has become the personification of cowardliness and failed leadership, and is said to now be the “most hated man” in Italy.
