My first job out of college taught me a lot about ethics—the hard way. As a member of the CFO’s SWOT team, my bosses gave me power of attorney and asked me to fly to the Cayman Islands to buy a $400 million Turkish power plant. As far as I knew, it was all part of my company’s mission; to be the engine for change and capitalise on the new opportunities that change created.
We were known as a darling of Wall Street. Everyone had a cavalier attitude; we thought we were smarter than our bankers, our attorneys, and our accountants—we believed that we were truly the smartest people in the room.
That’s right: I worked at Enron.
Watching all my bosses go to jail, I recognised transparency and honesty have to be core to your culture in order to have an aligned workforce.
Join me on 17 June as I share the 5 most important lessons I’ve learned on how to build workforce alignment and foster innovation, while keeping your ethics in check.
