Max Bazerman, Jesse Isidor Strauss Professor of Business Administration at the Harvard Business School, takes us through four key aspects of ethical leadership, based on his new book – Better, Not Perfect.
Max shares how research on decision making can help give better output on philanthropy, why we need to make wise trade-offs to decrease waste and how we can all be a part of disrupting corruption. The key is our moral obligation to notice and not close our eyes when we see signs of corruption in our organizations, industries or communities.
Max drives the message home with stories from the pharmaceutical and auditing industries, as well as companies like Amazon, Theranos and Enron.
Max is a frequent Harvard Business Review contributor and has authored a number of books including The Power of Experiments (with Michael Luca), The Power of Noticing, Judgment in Managerial Decision Making (with Don Moore), and Blind Spots (with Ann Tenbrunsel).
His latest book, Better, Not Perfect: A Realist’s Guide to Maximum Sustainable Goodness just came out.
