Paradoxical Truths In Heroic Leadership: Implications For Leadership Development And Effectiveness, Scott T. Allison, Jennifer L. Cecilione 2015 University of RIchmond

Paradoxical Truths In Heroic Leadership: Implications For Leadership Development And Effectiveness, Scott T. Allison, Jennifer L. Cecilione

Scott T. Allison

In this chapter, we discuss the basic elements of heroic leadership, showing how heroism and exemplary leadership are deeply intertwined. We then describe six paradoxical truths about heroic leadership that are often unrecognized and unappreciated. We believe that ignorance of these counterintuitive truths and paradoxes about heroic leadership can lead to misunderstandings about leaders, leadership, and leadership development. Most of these paradoxes are a central part of the hero’s journey as described by comparative mythologist Joseph Campbell (1949). We will discuss the genesis of these paradoxical truths, and we will suggest ways that an awareness of these principles can ...

Family Control, Socioemotional Wealth And Earnings Management In Publicly Traded Firms, Geoffrey P. Martin Dr, Joanna Campbell Dr, Luis R. Gomez-Mejia Prof 2015 Melbourne Business School

Family Control, Socioemotional Wealth And Earnings Management In Publicly Traded Firms, Geoffrey P. Martin Dr, Joanna Campbell Dr, Luis R. Gomez-Mejia Prof

Geoffrey P Martin

We examine the unique nature of agency problems within publicly traded family firms by investigating the earnings management decision of dominant family owners relative to non-family. To do so, we draw upon literature demonstrating that family owners are loss averse with respect to the family’s socioemotional wealth (SEW), or the affective endowment derived from firm ownership and control. Our theory and findings suggest that potential reputational consequences of earnings management lead family principals to engage in less of this practice relative to non-family firms, and that founder family firms are less likely than non-founder family firms to use earnings ...

Agenda: Innovations In Managing Western Water: New Approaches For Balancing Environmental, Social, And Economic Outcomes, University Of Colorado Boulder. Getches Wilkinson Center For Natural Resources, Energy, And The Environment

Innovations in Managing Western Water: New Approaches for Balancing Environmental, Social and Economic Outcomes (Martz Summer Conference, June 11-12)

Many aspects of western water allocation and management are the product of independent and uncoordinated actions, several occurring a century or more ago. However, in this modern era of water scarcity, it is increasingly acknowledged that more coordinated and deliberate decision-making is necessary for effectively balancing environmental, social, and economic objectives. In recent years, a variety of forums, processes, and tools have emerged to better manage the connections between regions, sectors, and publics linked by shared water systems. In this event, we explore the cutting edge efforts, the latest points of contention, and the opportunities for further progress.


The Affect Of Utilizing Social Media Marketing In The Publishing Industry, Lauren V. Kretzschmar 2015 Dominican University of California

The Affect Of Utilizing Social Media Marketing In The Publishing Industry, Lauren V. Kretzschmar

Scholarly and Creative Works Conference

In the publishing industry, marketers have found it difficult in the past to market directly to consumers, so they were mainly focused on marketing to other businesses and retailers. Recently, there has been a shift in the way publishers market, and they are now utilizing social media to market directly to potential customers. Implementing social media marketing allows publishers to establish a relationship with their readers. It also provides a platform for companies to promote content marketing, and for readers to converse and share testimonials about the books. Delivering content marketing is becoming an essential part of marketing in the ...

The Left Bank Brasseries: The Evolution Of A French-Inspired Restaurant, John A. Sansone, Dr. Rajeev Sooreea

Scholarly and Creative Works Conference

Due to the high failure rates of restaurants in the United States, many studies have come up with various reasons to explain the underlying causes of such a phenomenon. One key study by Parsa (2005) suggests, “Restaurant failures have been attributed to economic and social factors […]” and “Restaurant failures can be studied from economic, marketing, and managerial perspectives.” In particular, lack of capital is a major contributing factor for restaurants failure and researchers agree that a restaurant without a sufficient amount of capital will not survive because of three major expenses: overhead, labor, and food cost. Today’s service industry ...


Rise And Fall Of An Information Technology Outsourcing Program: A Qualitative Analysis Of A Troubled Corporate Initiative, David A. Johanek 2015 University of St. Thomas, Minnesota

Rise And Fall Of An Information Technology Outsourcing Program: A Qualitative Analysis Of A Troubled Corporate Initiative, David A. Johanek

Education Doctoral Dissertations in Leadership

Information technology outsourcing (ITO) is a common business practice and a widely studied topic in academic literature. However, far less attention is paid to the implications and social dynamics of executives’ pursuit of personal career achievement through the implementation of ITO programs. Focused mainly on gaining organizational power for career advancement and accomplishment, executives can create unintended consequences for their employees, their suppliers, their company, their shareholders, and their own careers.

This research focused on a large information technology outsourcing program from its inception to early implementation at a single Fortune 1000 firm. The time span covered was just over ...

“I Love Lucy” Gender Analysis And Its Influence On Popularity And Longevity, Brianna Knoll

Scholarly and Creative Works Conference

This thesis takes an analytical approach to examine the television show I Love Lucy. The contributing factors to the show’s continued success are considered, including Lucille Ball’s comedic style, domesticity and the role of housewives, marital relations, pregnancy on television, and the larger gender representations with a subtopic of social norms. Upon studying the above aspects of I Love Lucy, it is clear that each topic played an essential role in the success of the show. Ball’s comedic style combined with her portrayal of a 1950s housewife, and the social norms that she and her co-stars broke ...

A Business Trust For Partnerships? Early Conceptions Of Company-Related Assets In Legal Literature, And Antwerp Forensic And Commercial Practice (Later Sixteenth-Early Seventeenth Century), Dave De ruysscher 2015 Vrije Universiteit Brussel

A Business Trust For Partnerships? Early Conceptions Of Company-Related Assets In Legal Literature, And Antwerp Forensic And Commercial Practice (Later Sixteenth-Early Seventeenth Century), Dave De Ruysscher

Dave De ruysscher

The Antwerp example demonstrates that in the early modern period entity shielding for partnerships existed in some form by law, and that it was devised in doctrine and the practice of courts rather than in legislation. The affectation of assets for the business venture that did not entail limited liability nonetheless allowed for some separation of personal from partnership-related assets. This innovation, which was devised in doctrine in the early 1600s, was important in a mercantile context in which partnerships with open goals and with active partners or directors engaged in diverse business activities. Yet, according to an older rule ...


Institutional Shareholding And Information Content Of Dividend Surprises: Re-Examining The Dynamics In Dividend-Reappearance Era, Abu S. Amin, Shantanu Dutta, Samir Saadi, Premal P. Vora 2015 Sacred Heart University

Institutional Shareholding And Information Content Of Dividend Surprises: Re-Examining The Dynamics In Dividend-Reappearance Era, Abu S. Amin, Shantanu Dutta, Samir Saadi, Premal P. Vora

WCOB Faculty Publications

We examine the role of institutional investors’ investment horizon on the information content associated with dividend announcement surprises in the “dividend-reappearance era”. We find that the presence of institutional investors negatively affects the announcement period cumulative abnormal return (CAR), which suggests that institutional investors reduce information content of dividend announcements. This result is primarily driven by the fact that institutional investors, especially the not-short-horizon investors, do not prefer dividend surprises – which leads to lower announcement period CAR. We do not find support for institutional investors’ informed trading argument. Our study reveals that in order to understand the dynamics between institutional ...

Accounting Misstatements: Prior Period Financial Statement Errors, Stephen Elliott Bachner 2015 University of Redlands

Accounting Misstatements: Prior Period Financial Statement Errors, Stephen Elliott Bachner

Undergraduate Honors Theses

The current Securities and Exchange Commission authoritative guidance on proper accounting treatment of prior period immaterial errors is accused of allowing certain financial statement abuses. Current SEC regulations and guidelines that allow for financial restatements are designed to provide more accurate financial statements, transparency when misstatements or errors are corrected, and therefore to increase the information content of earnings, but this goal is not always accomplished. Investors and users of the financial information have expressed concerns that the guidance is being misused for earnings management.

The findings of this study rely predominantly on data, trends, and activity spanning the periods ...
