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

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 Oct 2015

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 ...

A Right To Cyber Counter Strikes - The Risks Of Legalizing Hack Back, Jan Kallberg Apr 2015

A Right To Cyber Counter Strikes - The Risks Of Legalizing Hack Back, Jan Kallberg

Jan Kallberg

The idea to legalize hacking back has gained traction the last years and received several influential corporate and political proponents in the United States and Europe. The growing frustration with repeated cyberattacks and lack of credible law enforcement pushes for alternative ways to prevent future cyberattacks. As of today, counter cyberattacks are illegal in a majority of the nations because it constitutes another cybercrime independent from the initial attack. If cyber counter attacks were legalized it raises a set of questions. The first line of questions are linked to the underlying assumptions that the proposal to legalize counter cyberattacks are ...


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 Apr 2015

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 ...


Racial And Ethnic Differences In Tipping: The Role Of Perceived Descriptive And Injunctive Tipping Norms, Michael Lynn, Zachary W. Brewster Feb 2015

Racial And Ethnic Differences In Tipping: The Role Of Perceived Descriptive And Injunctive Tipping Norms, Michael Lynn, Zachary W. Brewster

Articles and Chapters

In U.S. restaurants, racial and ethnic minorities often tip less than whites. These differences in tipping create numerous problems ranging from discriminatory service to restaurant executives’ reluctance to open restaurants in minority communities. Thus, racial differences in tipping need to be sizably reduced, which requires an understanding of their underlying causes. In this paper, we ask a racially and ethnically diverse sample of respondents in an online survey about how much they would tip in a hypothetical dining scenario, how much their best friend would tip, and how much the average person in their area would tip, as well ...


Service Gratuities And Tipping: A Motivational Framework, Michael Lynn Feb 2015

Service Gratuities And Tipping: A Motivational Framework, Michael Lynn

Articles and Chapters

In many countries around the world, consumers leave voluntary payments of money (called “tips”) to service workers who have served them. Since tips are an expense that consumers are free to avoid, tipping is an anomalous behavior that many economists regard as “irrational” or “mysterious.” In this paper, I present a motivational framework that offers plausible explanations for: (1) why people tip, (2) how tipping norms came into existence and evolve over time, (3) why tipping varies across individuals and situations, (4) why tipping is more common for some occupations than others, and (5) why tipping varies across nations. Many ...


How Big Data Can Create Big Impact: Findings From A Systematic Review And A Longitudinal Case Study, Samuel Wamba, Shahriar Akter Feb 2015

How Big Data Can Create Big Impact: Findings From A Systematic Review And A Longitudinal Case Study, Samuel Wamba, Shahriar Akter

Shahriar Akter

Big data has the potential to revolutionize the art of management. Despite the high operational and strategic impacts, there is a paucity of empirical research to assess the potential of big data. Drawing on a systematic review and case study findings, this paper presents an interpretive framework that analyses the definitional perspectives and the applications of big data. The paper also provides a general taxonomy that helps broaden the understanding of big data and its role in capturing business value. The synthesis of the diverse concepts within the literature on big data and operations management provides deeper insights into achieving ...


Cross-Border Mergers And Acquisitions By Emerging Market Firms: A Comparative Investigation, Ping Deng, Monica Yang Feb 2015

Cross-Border Mergers And Acquisitions By Emerging Market Firms: A Comparative Investigation, Ping Deng, Monica Yang

Business Faculty Publications

This paper applies and extends resource dependence theory (RDT) to comparatively investigate major factors that determine the level of cross-border mergers and acquisitions (M&As) by emerging market firms (EMFs) in developed and developing markets. We argue that the resource dependence logic of M&As (or simply the M&A logic) provides a unique perspective in better understanding the internationalization of EMFs via cross-border M&As, but the explanation is bounded by institutional environment (i.e., government effectiveness) in a host nation. Our empirical results, based on a large panel data analysis of cross-border M&As by EMFs from nine ...


Leadership, Trust And Communication: Building Trust In Companies Through Effective Communication, Martin Mathews, Katalin Iles Feb 2015

Leadership, Trust And Communication: Building Trust In Companies Through Effective Communication, Martin Mathews, Katalin Iles

Martin Mathews

Responsible leadership is a scarce resource in business and public administration today. Trust in leaders worldwide is dramatically decreasing. Rather, they are perceived by the public to be pursuing their own selfish goals and those of their organizations. It is argued that mainstream leadership model of business and public organizations should be renewed to re-establish the trust of the public and to ensure these entities succeed in tandem with their stakeholders.

A Case For Developing Spiritual Intelligence In Leaders Through Equine Facilitated Learning, Cora Maziere, Olen Gunnlaugson Jan 2015

A Case For Developing Spiritual Intelligence In Leaders Through Equine Facilitated Learning, Cora Maziere, Olen Gunnlaugson

The Journal of Values-Based Leadership

Unpredictable circumstances, growing stresses in an ever-increasing global market, and ubiquitous ennui have left organizations and today’s leaders in government, industry, and academia without the necessary tools to transition to change in a principled manner. The authors explain that the development and maintenance of genuine leadership skills — adaptive to the dictates of the modern world — must be borne from one’s inner self, a retreat to spirituality. One available method of achieving this is through Equine Facilitated Experiential Learning (EFEL), a technique whereby leaders develop critical management skills by working with horses.


The End Of Tomorrow: Have We Lost Control? Do We Still Have Time To Stop The Inevitable? Soon We Will Know It's All About Leadership, Emilio F. Iodice Jan 2015

The End Of Tomorrow: Have We Lost Control? Do We Still Have Time To Stop The Inevitable? Soon We Will Know It's All About Leadership, Emilio F. Iodice

The Journal of Values-Based Leadership

There are many varying aspects of desired leadership in business and in government: managerial competencies, policy-making aligned with the needs of all affected stakeholders, effective communication skills, and the infusion of ethics in all forms of decision-making. However, none command attention more than the ability to lead in a world where every eco-system is in decline and the health of the planet is dangerously threatened. It will be those leaders who understand the magnitude, science, and extreme importance of this issue who are in the highest demand and to whom we look to protect the progress made in human rights ...


Commitment In University Students: Generator Of Successful Professionals, Maria Del Rosario Hernández Coló Jan 2015

Commitment In University Students: Generator Of Successful Professionals, Maria Del Rosario Hernández Coló

The Journal of Values-Based Leadership

The University has historically been regarded as the harbinger of values, human rights, and other noble pursuits. It is within this atmosphere that personal development, mutual respect, and collaboration are expected to flourish through commitment to work and study. Yet in order for meaningful and sustainable social, economic, and political changes to take root, the author opines that certain adjustments to the overall social fabric are occasionally required and can only be achieved through unyielding commitment — an essential value transmitted from person to person through both individual and collective reflection.


Bhagavad Gitā & The Art Of Leadership: Old Text, New Context!, Satinder Dhiman Jan 2015

Bhagavad Gitā & The Art Of Leadership: Old Text, New Context!, Satinder Dhiman

The Journal of Values-Based Leadership

Author and scholar Satinder Dhiman focuses upon the pervasive and necessary role of spirituality in values-based leadership. He notes that while the leadership literature is plentiful, the Bhagavad Gītā represents one of the very few writings which explores the core psychological, philosophical, ethical, and spiritual underpinnings of leadership roles. In this article, the author applies hermeneutics to the Gītā to highlight important leadership lessons and to apply such lessons to contemporary organizational leadership. Through selfless work, a true leader eschews an egoistic pursuit of self-aggrandizement to achieve the freedom of serving others. Thus, Dhiman concludes, the Gīta ...


Favoritism: Ethical Dilemmas Viewed Through Multiple Paradigms, I-Pang Fu Jan 2015

Favoritism: Ethical Dilemmas Viewed Through Multiple Paradigms, I-Pang Fu

The Journal of Values-Based Leadership

Favoritism is a controversial issue in many cultural settings. Related terms include nepotism and cronyism; all three are identified with misconduct in the merit-based business world. The flip side is ethics — the principles of conduct governing an individual or a group (Merriam-Webster, 2012). According to John Dewey (1902), “Ethics is the science that deals with conduct insofar as this is considered to be right or wrong, good or bad.” Since favoritism is perceived as being linked to workplace misconduct, it is necessary to use ethics in examining this issue. The current study applied four lenses of ethics identified by Shapiro ...


Memo To Ceo: Five Easy Ways To Invigorate The C-Suite, Ritch Eich Jan 2015

Memo To Ceo: Five Easy Ways To Invigorate The C-Suite, Ritch Eich

The Journal of Values-Based Leadership

As business is inherently stressful, especially for those in leadership positions, maintaining a restorative workplace environment is essential to promoting sound mental health and achieving sustained competitive excellence. Eich stresses that chief executives must continuously monitor their teams for ennui and malaise. As the previous article describes the impact of spirituality in the workplace, Eich notes the importance of creating an environment marked by the arts and measured forms of relaxation — whether in the form of comforting music, gardens, artwork, and/or time off from work. A reflective, calming work environment promotes a healthy psyche which, in turn, fosters creativity ...

Finding Your Self By Losing Yourself: Integrating Spirituality And Business, Aman Jhaveri, A. Anantaraman

The key to his management style and his business’s success? Love. As the foundation for any type of business, he believes that love gives way ...


Values Generation: Turning Values Into Wealth, Leon Miller Jan 2015

Values Generation: Turning Values Into Wealth, Leon Miller

The Journal of Values-Based Leadership

Much of management behavior is focused on increasing benefits (usually thought of — in terms of Utilitarian ethics — as maximizing utility). Good, in terms of what increases benefits; thus, what is preferred by business is defined as the ability to motivate individuals in a way that increases desired outcomes (or that enhances organizational performance). This talent (referred to as the art of persuasion or the art of management) is valued because it facilitates achieving the desired results. Managers with such persuasive or motivational skills are highly regarded because of their ability to increase personal wealth, improve performance, and contribute to increasing ...

Controls And Constraints, Steven S. Taylor Jan 2015

Controls And Constraints, Steven S. Taylor

Organizational Aesthetics

We teach managers to seek control and eliminate constraints. In contrast artists often create constraints and lose control. That may be something of an exaggeration, but it also has a ring of truth. As a manager I saw constraints as something generally negative and control as something generally positive – lack of control was a sin when pointed out by auditors. In contrast as an artist I often intentionally construct complex constraints for my work and scoff at control, saying something like, “control is an illusion”. As a scholar I wonder about the implications of this difference.


Oxford Handbook: Institutional Investors In Corporate Governance, Edward B. Rock Jan 2015

Oxford Handbook: Institutional Investors In Corporate Governance, Edward B. Rock

Faculty Scholarship

This chapter of the Oxford Handbook on Corporate Law and Governance examines the role of institutional investors in corporate governance and the role of regulation in encouraging institutional investors to become active stewards. I approach these topics through asking what lessons we can draw from the U.S. experience for the E.U.’s 2014 proposed amendments to the Shareholder Rights Directive.

I begin by defining the institutional investor category, and summarizing the growth of institutional investors’ equity holdings over time. I then briefly survey how institutional investors themselves are governed and how they organize share voting. This leads me ...


Consumer Perception Of Tactile Packaging: A Research Study On Preferences Of Soft Touch And Hi Rise Coatings In Cosmetic Packaging, Malcolm G. Keif Ph.D., Colleen Twomey, Andrea Stoneman Jan 2015

Consumer Perception Of Tactile Packaging: A Research Study On Preferences Of Soft Touch And Hi Rise Coatings In Cosmetic Packaging, Malcolm G. Keif Ph.D., Colleen Twomey, Andrea Stoneman

Journal of Applied Packaging Research

A choice-based conjoint study was conducted sampling 400 individuals to determine their preference for Soft Touch and raised tactile coatings, which are sometimes called Hi Rise or profile coatings. Soft Touch coatings have a velvety, warm feel to them, and Hi Rise coatings simulate embossing with a glossy appearance to them. Both are considered tactile coatings, engaging the sense of touch.

Demographic profile data, level of agreement about statements related to cosmetic packaging and packaging choice set selections were collected. The conjoint sets contained three attributes: design color, tactile coatings, and price.

Design choice was split. Approximately half of the ...
