Today we are joined by Ron Carucci, the co-founder and managing partner at Navalent, working with CEOs and executives pursuing transformational change for their organizations, leaders, and industries.
Ron has a 30 year track record helping some of the world’s most influential executives tackle challenges of strategy, organization and leadership.
From start-ups to Fortune 500s, turn-arounds to new markets and strategies, overhauling leadership and culture to re-designing for growth, he has worked in more than 25 countries across four continents.
In addition to being a regular contributor to HBR and Forbes, and has been featured in Fortune, CEO Magazine, Business Insider, MSNBC, Inc, Business Week, and Smart Business.
In this conversation we are talking about the research that sits behind his latest book, ‘To Be Honest: Lead with the Power of Truth, Justice and Purpose’. The book is a result of 15 years of research with more than 3200 interviews with leaders around the world.
The book explains how four factors – Clear Identity, Accountability, Governance and Cross-Functional Relationships – affect honesty, justice and purpose within a company. When these factors are absent or ineffective, the organizational conditions compel employees to choose dishonesty and self-interest. But when done well, the organization is 16 times more likely to have people tell the truth, behave fairly, and serve a greater good.
