Episode 59: Ron Carucci of Navalent

All of us come with sources of power – if we chose to use them for the greater good, imagine how much more powerful would we be as a world.

Today, public mistrust in corporate leadership is growing at a significant rate – but can you blame us? It seems every time you check the news, there’s another CEO who has abused their power for personal gain or lied to stakeholders to conceal less-than-ideal performance. Ron Carucci, co-founder and managing partner at Navalent, is an expert on leadership and corporate dishonesty, with more than 30 years of experience coaching leaders and organizations from around the world on corporate integrity. Drawing from his extensive research into the common factors that contribute to this misconduct, Ron argues the true reasoning behind dishonest leadership runs deeper than just personal gain.

Vicki and Kathy talk with Ron about the unique challenges that face leadership today, and how to overcome those obstacles – starting with a willingness to be vulnerable and an understanding that trust starts at the top. Ron shares the findings of his work with IBM Watson to uncover the four commonplace workplace conditions that manufacture liars and how those factors don’t just affect the CEOs of giant corporations but can be found in our everyday relationships.
