The CEO Report | WhitePaper
with Heidrick & Struggles and Saïd Business School
The role that business plays in society, and the expectations about the role it should play, have shifted dramatically in recent years.

This report, which presents the findings from our interviews with more than 150 CEOs around the world, explores such issues along with the central question: how do senior executives develop the competence to lead in a changing world?
Profitability of Dignity, Respect & Honor
with Jack Lannom
During more than thirty years as a leadership consultant, a virtual host of disgruntled employees and customers have given me an earful about how poorly they are being treated. Every time I hear the pain and disgust in their voices as they describe the disrespect and dishonor they are experiencing, it makes me even more determined to do something about this epidemic of disrespect in the workplace.
In case you may be thinking that this is just one man’s perspective, I suggest that you read an article in The Harvard Business Review, titled “The Price of Incivility: Lack of Respect Hurts Morale and the Bottom Line” by Professor Christine Porath, Associate Professor of Management at Georgetown, and Professor Christine Pearson.
Porath and Pearson state emphatically that “Rudeness at work is rampant, and it’s on the rise. Over the past 14 years we’ve polled thousands of workers about how they’re treated on the job, and 98% have reported experiencing uncivil behavior.”
The purpose of this white paper is to help leaders realize that this issue of disrespect in the workplace is not just an HR problem; it is, in the primary sense, a ubiquitous leadership problem that is destroying the trust currency and profitability of organizations all over the world.
In this white paper you will learn the root cause of the problem of incivility and discover a detailed system for creating a culture of dignity, respect, and honor that will enable you to reap a harvest of sustainable profitability, both socially and economically.
The Economics of Developing Humility at Work
with Jack Lannom
When you look at the title of this white paper, it may not be readily apparent that there is an inextricable relationship between humility and the economic prosperity of your organization. However, I intend to prove that there is untold profitability inherent within humility … and a staggeringly high cost associated with hubris.
My desire in writing “The Economics of Developing Humility in the Workplace” is to speak to the hearts and minds of leaders, so that they will herald the monumental importance of every member of their organization growing in humility as the means to living a richer, more fulfilled, and profitable lifestyle, both personally and professionally.
Five Keys to Success
with Ken Verheyen
In my youth, I thought success related to position, power, prestige and wealth. Since accepting Jesus in 1976, the Bible has reshaped my views. As I began to apply the Bible’s teaching on success, my worldly perspectives faded away. Today, I have enjoyed far more worldly success than I deserve. I can’t credit myself—my success is based on what God values more than the values of this world.
In this white paper, we will review a Biblical framework for true success and consider creating a written framework of your own.

Economics of Putting People First
with Jack Lannom
The empirical data is inarguable: there is a direct relationship between employee happiness, customer satisfaction, and bottom-line profitability. Fresh Smith, founder and CEO of FedEx, wisely revealed the order of sustainable organizational success when he penned the FedEx credo: People-Service-Profits. The three-fold order of his success formula rightly began with People, and not Profits.
The purpose of this white paper is to encourage you to consider the order of your corporate philosophy, so that you can achieve greater growth potential.
