Hypocrisy is rife in the corporate world, with disastrous consequences for businesses, employees, and consumers.
Dr. Williams argues that hypocrisy occurs when leaders fail to align their actions with company values, resulting in widespread disillusionment that taints the entire organization. He makes a bold and compelling case for authentic leadership as a legitimate and profitable business incentive, where values are ethically informed and pioneered by diligent leaders.
Now more than ever, companies have a duty and an incentive to reverse the ‘profits before people’ mentality, focusing instead on a ‘people first’ directive. Dr. Williams demonstrates that profits are a natural consequence of this approach, since employees are inspired to contribute their personal best when they are well-treated and respected. Visions, Values, and Corporate Hypocrisy calls for greater transparency, accountability, and integrity within the business discourse, starting with leaders whose actions ultimately shape the culture and success of organizations.
Williams holds a PhD in Organizational Psychology, and has a 30-year career in corporate leadership.
