Since the recession, CEOs of publicly traded companies are under a microscope. Board members are less tolerant and quicker to act when conduct isn’t consistent with their values or the values of their shareholders.
According to a USA Today article, the average tenure of a CEO has dropped from 10 years in the 1990s to 5 ½ years. In spite of record profits many CEOs continue to lose their jobs due to their improper conduct.
King David in Psalm 101:2 teaches, “I will be careful to lead a blameless life… I will conduct the affairs of my house with a blameless heart.”
