Great leaders can be great role models, but another way to learn about leadership is through the mistakes of others. Some leaders who rise up the ranks start believing they are beyond reproach and that, for them, the rules don’t apply.
In this edition of Smith Business Close-Up with the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business, Joyce Russell talks about how leaders can stay ethical and what happens when they slip up.
Dr. Joyce E. A. Russell is the director of the Executive Coaching and Leadership Development Program at The University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business. She is a licensed Industrial and Organizational Psychologist and has more than 25 years of experience coaching executives and consulting on leadership, negotiations and career management.
Smith Business Close-Up is co-produced by the Robert H. Smith School of Business and Maryland Public Television. The television segment focuses on the latest thinking in business management, and features in-depth interviews with Smith School faculty and other members of the school’s community of business leaders.
