  • Alyson Van Hooser on Leadership Lessons from Grey’s Anatomy

    Richard Lummis is on assignment this week so I am pleased to host Alyson Van Hooser. Alyson is passionate about leadership. She has her own consulting practice on leadership as well as her own podcast on leadership. She recently wrote an article on leadership lessons from Grey’s Anatomy and I asked to come on 12 O’Clock High to expound on some of her thoughts. Highlights of this podcast include:

    1. Why did Alyson write the article on Grey’s Anatomy Leadership Lessons?
    2. How does Alyson see useful leadership lessons from movies, books and TV?
    3. If you stumble as a leader, why is it important to get back up?
    4. When looking for leadership opportunities, why should you not take the first opportunity?
    5. Why is it important to push through hard things and how does someone do so?
    6. Why did you end your article with “It’s not about Jo, it’s about you”?

[summary] =>

    Richard Lummis and Tom Fox begin a five-part series on leadership lessons from Theodore Roosevelt. We will look at lessons from Roosevelt’s early years in New York up to his cowboying days in Montana; the second phase of his public career, from NYC Police Commission to Assistant Secretary of the Navy, San Juan Hill and the Vice Presidency; his leadership from his Presidency; his life in the post-Presidency and the election of 1912 and we will end with leadership lessons from his post Bull Moose Party life, World War I and event surrounding his death. In this first episode, we consider the leadership lessons learned by Roosevelt from his parents, his sickly childhood, initial forays into public life, widowhood and cowboying in Montana.

    Highlights of this podcast include:

    Roosevelt’s parents, his upbringing, education and early book publishing. Roosevelt’s widowhood in his early 20s and his election to the New York State Assembly. From the Presidential election of 1884, up to his cowboying in Dakota. We conclude with three key leadership lessons, including 1. The beginning of his lifelong learning; 2. How he came to view merit, not privilege as the key to advancement, and 3. How hard work is required to be a great leader.

    This week I have a special five-part podcast series where I am joined by Amii Barnard-Bahn to review some of the top business leadership failures of 2019. Today, we conclude our series by considering some of the leadership failures of the Swedish telecom company Ericsson in connection with its stunning FCPA enforcement action of over $1bn in fines and penalties. Some of the issues we explore in this podcast include:

    •  Ericsson is the second largest FCPA settlement of all time.
    • Why is telecom such a riskiest industry for FCPA violations?
    • This matter had shockingly simple bribe schemes together with an appallingly weak control system and compliance culture.
    • Thus far, the communications from leadership thus far seem to be driven by legal, lack depth and have a defensive tone. They recently brought in a new CCO and revamped their compliance team.
    • The company will have a monitor for 3 years.

    This week I have a special five-part podcast series where I am joined by Amii Barnard-Bahn to review some of the top business leadership failures of 2019. Today, we take a look at the continued leadership failures of Wells Fargo. Some of the issues we explore in this podcast include:

    1. The bank recently hired a new CEO, Charles W. Scharf, who is taking on one of the toughest jobs in the country.
    2. The bank has sustained an unremitting run of four years of crisis, unethical consumer practices with incentives that rewarded unethical behavior and poor/no controls. When will Wells Fargo finally turn the corner?
    3. Scharf and Wells Fargo will need to initiate a complete turnaround of culture, incentives and senior leadership.

    • The Goldman Sachs/1MDB imbroglio is one largest geopolitical scandal of the decade and may well be for the 2020s as well.
    • This matter featured widespread corruption in the level of controls circumvented, at the very top levels of leadership. A settlement seems close as Goldman Sachs has announced a reserve of over $2bn to resolve the matter.
    • There is hope that new CEO David Solomon will initiate a major culture change.

Find out in this special 5-part podcast series. [summary] =>

    This week I have a special five-part podcast series where I am joined by Amii Barnard-Bahn to review some of the top business leadership failures of 2019. Today, we take a look at leadership failures from the continuing saga of Boeing. Some of the issues we explore in this podcast include:

    • This case is a tragic ethical failure, which caused significant loss of life.
    • Boeing clearly has a broken culture. There is low trust, lack of accountability between employees and management, coupled with unhealthy cultural norms at work.
    • What has been the role of the FAA? Has there been questionable regulatory oversight?
    • Boeing has a brand new CEO but the entire company needs total turnaround.

Some of the issues we explore in this podcast include:

    •  How did a charismatic, eccentric and inexperienced Founder CEO went boom ($47B valuation) to bust, all in the space of a few short months?
    • How and why did Neumann create a toxic culture with major conflicts of interest and poor corporate governance.
    • Neumann was forced out, the company’s IPO postponed and its future remains to be seen.
    • Have investors have finally had it with startups that aren’t following basic rules of monetary gravity? Have we turned a corner?

    Richard Lummis and I are back. Today, we take a look at leadership lessons from a trifecta of failed leaders, including Adam Neumann, the founder and former CEO of WeWork, Elizabeth Holmes, founder and former CEO of Theranos and Travis Kalanick, founder and former CEO of Uber.

     Highlights of this podcast include:

    1. What happens when charismatic leaders have disruptive visions?
    2. What happens when a brilliant jerk is a CEO?
    3. They all had and maintained asymmetrical power, total control and maintained dual-class ownership structures.
    4. What happens when the CEO creates a cult of personality?
    5. All three valued opaqueness over transparency so that they could control the flow of information.
    6. Where was the Board of Directors?

    Richard Lummis is on assignment this week so I take this week’s episode solo to discuss how you can begin to evaluate a leader’s conduct around not simply compliance and ethics but also how a leader can improve culture. Highlights of this podcast include:


    1. The DOJ wants to see more evidence of leadership.
    2. How can a leader use current events to lead culture?
    3. What messages can a CEO push out around culture?
    4. A leader should be an ambassador of compliance, ethics and culture.

[summary] =>

    I recently listened to the Great Courses series of lectures entitled, Crashes and Crisis: Lessons form a History of Financial Disasters, hosted by Professor Connel Fullenkamp. Although the lecture series focused on economic disasters, I found many leadership lessons embedded in the lecture. In prior podcasts, host Richard Lummis and myself have considered the Dutch Tulip Bubble from the 1630s, the South Sea Bubble of 1720 and the Mississippi Bubble of 1720.   Today we conclude with the Panic of 1907 and see how one person’s integrity and leadership can actually work to stop a panic and save a national economy.

    While there were obviously many moving parts to stopping the Panic of 1907, with the personal integrity of JP Morgan and his knowledge of the domestic and international financial markets, it is very doubtful the Panic could have been stopped. If the Panic had been allowed to spread unchecked it likely could have brought down the entire US economy. This example shows that the right person, at the right place, at the right time can make all the difference.

    I recently listened to the Great Courses series of lectures, entitled Crashes and Crisis: Lessons form a History of Financial Disasters, hosted by Professor Connel Fullenkamp.

In prior podcasts, host Richard Lummis and myself have considered the Dutch Tulip Bubble from the 1630s and the South Sea Bubble of 1720. Today we consider the leadership lessons and failures which led to the Mississippi Bubble of 1720.  The Mississippi Bubble has nothing to do with the state of Mississippi or the great river but rather a French trading company which had been granted an exclusive charter by the King of France to develop France’s territory in the Mississippi territory in the New World.

    This lack of seeming awareness of enhanced risks, is a confounding aspect of this Bubble. If your own company policies, procedures, controls and personnel cannot determine how business is transacted in your organization, you run the risk of a legal violation or something similar to the fall of the Mississippi Company and John Law, who was forced to flee France disguised as a woman.

[summary] =>

    In Part 2 of this special four-part podcast series, Richard Lummis and myself consider business leadership from a different angle, that of great economic disaster. This podcast series was inspired by the Great Courses series of lectures entitled, Crashes and Crisis: Lessons form a History of Financial Disasters, hosted by Professor Connel Fullenkamp. In this podcast series, we will consider the Dutch Tulip Bubble from the 1630s, the South Sea Bubble of 1720, the Mississippi Bubble of 1720 and the 1907 Panic. Today we continue with the South Sea Company Bubble of 1720.

    Fullenkamp said of the scandal, “The South Sea Company went from an obscure British trading organization in the early 18th century, with a share price of £128, to England’s most important company, with its shares trading at more than £1000—over the course of just 6 months. The company was at the center of one of history’s most interesting stock bubbles, one largely built on stock price manipulation and corruption. The South Sea bubble is a complex, fascinating story about the early days of the stock market in England and a cautionary tale about the dangers of mixing private enterprise and government finance.”

    What does the South Sea bubble teach us about the nature of bubbles and crashes? Fullenkamp identified three general points. First, “When governments get too involved in any asset market, there’s bound to be danger. People interpret the government presence as a sign that the asset can’t lose, so they’re willing to overpay for it .” Second, the South Sea bubble, similar to the  tulip bubble that preceded it, “was made possible by easy credit. The ability to buy stocks on credit, with absurdly low down payments, made people all too willing to buy the company’s shares.” The third and final point is that “Market manipulation can, and does, play a role in bubbles. And manipulation can be difficult to detect until after a bubble bursts.”

    Focusing on the fraud and market manipulations of the South Sea Bubble, James Narron and Richard Skeie, in their article “Crisis Chronicles: The South Sea Bubble of 1720—Repackaging Debt and the Current Reach for Yield”, found four factors. (1) Start with insider trading, here by picking up the British National Debt; (2) Pay bribes to those who have to approve the deal, here Members of Parliament; (3) Ban rivals, here the South Sea Company persuaded Parliament to pass the ‘Bubble Act’ which banned corporations in competition with the South Sea Company; and (4) Repackage worthless old debt for new investors, here think “Asset-backed securitization and collateralized debt obligations” in 1720 and you begin to see the problem.

    Tulips had been imported into what became the United Provinces of Holland in the late 1500s from Turkey. They became quite fashionable with the smart set at the time (i.e. royalty and the aristocracy) and by the early 1630s prices in Holland were already quite high. Then two things happened to create the bubble of 1634-1637. First the small group of tightly knit Dutch traders who bought and sold tulips were overrun by speculators.

    Second and perhaps more significantly, a type of formal futures market was created where contracts to buy bulbs at the end of the season were bought and sold, beginning in mid-1636. But this market was sanctioned or regulated as their trades were not made on formal Dutch exchanges. Different groups of traders began to meet together in taverns where they did not have to put much money down and the contracts were not legally enforceable. This significantly lessened any downside in not getting carried away in bidding.

    Traders were required only to pay a 2.5% “wine money” fee, up to a maximum of three guilders per trade. Neither party paid an initial margin, nor a mark-to-market margin, and all contracts were with the individual counterparties rather than with the Exchange. The entire business was accomplished on the margins of Dutch economic life, not in the Exchange itself.

    In this special five-part podcast series, we consider the business leadership issues raised by General Stanley McChrystal (ret.) recent book Leaders-Myth and Reality, which he co-authored with Jeff Eggers and Jason Mangone. Using Plutarch’s Lives as their model they considered multiple leaders and leadership styles. These include: Founders, Walt Disney and Coco Chanel; Geniuses, Albert Einstein and Leonard Bernstein; Heroes, Zheng He and Harriet Tubman; Power Brokers, Boss Tweed and Margaret Thatcher. In this episode I, we take up the Founders, Walt Disney and Coco Chanel.  Some of the highlights include: 1. What are creative and obsessive perfectionism?2. How do they help (or hurt) the leadership process.  3. Right Place, Right Time-founders must take advantage of opportunity when it knocked. 4. Founder Dilemma-is it to manage or to create?5. Is leadership about the Mission or People?

In this episode II, we take up the Geniuses, Albert Einstein and Leonard Bernstein.  Some of the highlights include: 1. There is more to their genius than intelligence, just as there is more to their leadership than genius. 2. Einstein’s correspondence and collaboration demonstrated that the lone genius (and solitary mad scientist) not realistic.3. Bernstein demonstrated that even the most outgoing person needed solitude to compose. 4. They both made genius accessible.

In this episode III, we take up the Heroes, Harriett Tubman and Zheng He.  Some of the highlights include: 1. The Hero’s Journey is Separation->initiation->return.  Tubman demonstrates setting forth into the unknown, emerging victorious and then returning. 2. Leadership is not magic. It occurs at a specific time and place in certain circumstances. Once again, the right person must be at the right time and the right place. 3. Great leaders must be surrounded by people who enable their activities and find meaning in what they have to offer.

In this episode IV, we take up the Power Brokers-Boss Tweed and Thatcher.  Some of the highlights include: 1. A power broker wields influence and symbols like a tangible good. 2. Power is an arrangement among stakeholders. 3. Tweed used the social identity of the Irish as the basis for his power.4. Margaret Thatcher resurrected the feeling of national pride for the British people. 5. There must be a consolidation of and working with groups with which they shared power. Tweed had his lunch club and Thatcher had her breakfast club. 6. The true leadership of power brokers is to manage the followers and institutions which enable them.

In this episode V, we take up the Reformers-Martin Luther and Martin Luther King, Jr.  Some of the highlights include: 1. Reformers must agree to shoulder burdens when asked to or they were thrust upon them. 2. The leadership of Reformers comes through existing structures. King’s leadership came through the framework of the SCLC and strategy of the civil rights movement. Luther’s leadership was more based on commentary. 3. Both used new technologies. Luther used the printing press and King used television.4. Reformers must seize the moment, as demonstrated by King’s ad libs in his I have a dreamspeech.

    One of the challenges many compliance practitioners face when they move up in their careers is to move from tactical to strategic thinking. It is a requirement for any Chief Compliance Officer (CCO) to be able to think strategically as well as tactically but as you move up the corporate ladder, the strategic becomes more important. Strategic thinking is not something taught in law schools and in most business programs.

    The golden age of polar exploration lasted from about 1895 to 1912 during which time explorers reached both the North Pole and the South Pole. Yet even today their explorations and expeditions raise admiration and even awe. In this episode, we discuss the race to the South Pole and what leadership lessons may be drawn from it. The three principals we discuss in this episode are Englishmen Ernest Shackleton and Robert Falcon Scott and Norwegian Roald Amundson.

    On of the traditions of this podcast is each February, Richard Lummis and I rewatch Oscar winning movies with an eye towards the leadership lessons that might be drawn from them. It is a great way to honor the Oscars, rewatch some great old movies and garner some interesting perspectives on leadership. We continue that tradition this month as we are back with more leadership lessons from Oscar-winning Best Picture movies and today’s offering is the 1981 film Chariots of Fire 1981.

The first is communicating across cultural boundaries.  The second is the technique of asking questions to boost leadership. One of the things most critical issues to a compliance function is breaking through a company’s internal cultural boundaries.

    In this episode, I consider the book Multipliers: How the Best Leaders Make Everyone Smarter. It focuses two different types of leaders, Diminishers and Multipliers. Multipliers are leaders who encourage growth and creativity from their workers, while Diminishers are those who hinder and otherwise keep their employees’ productivity at a minimum. The authors give what they consider to be solutions and guidance to the issues they bring up in the book.

    In this episode, Richard Lummis and I explore leadership lessons from Toussaint Louverture, who held the only successful slave revolt in the Western Hemisphere. Our remarks are based on the recent biography of him entitled, Toussaint Louverture by Phillipe Gerrard. While not an obvious character for study in a business leadership podcast, Louverture nonetheless presented several important lessons which translate into to today’s business environment.
