Richard Bistrong: Moving from corruption to compliance
The news is littered with examples of ethical lapses and corruption. In fact, a Strategy& study showed that it was the biggest reason for CEOs resigning. Yet, compliance is still a word and a practice that is not always considered pivotal to the success of organisations. It’s often perceived as part of the bureaucracy that stops or slows down progress.
Who better to talk to than a man who has transformed himself from somebody who was corrupt and sent to jail, to somebody who is now a world authority on the subject.
This is the podcast for you if you want to:
- Hear his own fascinating story of redemption and transformation.
- Learn where to start if you feel your organisation or team is close to or over the edge when it comes to ethical practices.
- Manage risk in an organisation that is more dispersed, especially in hybrid working arrangements.
- Help somebody who you feel has moved to the dark side of the force.
- Make the difficult issues discussable. Or how to position and sell the role of compliance within an organisation — from policeman or policewoman to an enabler.
The best bits of these conversations are captured in my newsletter Strategic Leader.
