[summary] =>

    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.

[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 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.

Listen in to this episode of 12 O'Clock High, a podcast on business leadership to find out. [summary] =>

    In 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 begin with the Dutch Tulip Bubble.

    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.

    Richard Lummis and I are back and today we head in a different direction. We consider the final Bernie Gunther novel by Philip Kerr Metropolis. It is the final Gunther novel as Kerr died earlier this year. The novel is a prequel to the entire series, taking place in 1928, near the end of the Weimar Republic. Some of the highlights were:The city of Berlin as a character in the novel;Bernie Gunther as Phillip Marlow?How close are the police to those they police?What is the symbiotic relationship between the police and criminals of the city?Why is the Weimar Republic in many ways the undiscovered country for Americans? andRichard and I asses not only this book but the entire Gunther series.

    We are back with our fan favorite Oscar movie month. During the month of February each year, we look at Oscar-winning Best Pictures and consider the leadership lessons we glean from our viewing. This month we look at three: No Country for Old Men, The Sting and The Last Emperor. In this episode of 12 O’Clock High, a podcast on business leadership, Richard Lummis and I take at the 1987 Best Picture winning film, The Last Emperor. Some of the highlights were: ·     This was the first movie shot in the Forbidden City;·     How does one lead in an era or region of different values and different cultures?·     Are the trappings of your power as a business leader only that, mere trappings? If so what does this mean?·     How does your company do business outside the US? and·     Why does even the best leader sometimes need to bring in an outside expert to assist?

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 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 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.

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.

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.

    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.

    Adam Bryant recently retired from the Corner Office column after 10 years on the post. Fans of this podcast know we use many of his articles as jumping off points for many of our podcasts. To commemorate his 10 years of studying business leaders, Bryant published a long-from piece in the New York Times for his final article. As a tribute to Bryant, Richard Lummis and I will explore many of the lessons Bryant has drawn.

    In the episode, I consider two different issues around communication skills. 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.

    It is difficult to imagine today a harder situation than the country faced when FDR came to power in 1933. The task must have seemed overwhelming. Starting a new compliance leadership position at a new company can seem equally daunting. You need to not only think through your steps going forward but also how to execute them for maximum performance in this early part of your corporate career.

    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.

Our remarks are based on the recent biography of him entitled, Toussaint Louverture by Phillipe Gerrard.
