Transcript of Frame

Joseph CHAPTER 19 The Case of Enron America’s largest gas pipeline company when Kenneth Lay took over as CEO in 1985.
He looked for ways to grow the business and boost profits.
Profits rose from $2 billion in 1985 to $70 billion in 2001.
With success came excessive greed, lavish spending , and materialism.
These led to fraudulent means of profit-making and to the eventual imploding of the company. Soul and Spirit in Organizations The soul of an organization is that resolute sense of character, that deep confidence about what the organization stands for, what it cares about, and what it deeply believes in.
The Example of Merk-preserving and improving human life.
No regard for profit-the company has produced medication for river blindness and given it away. What shall an organization profit
if it should gain the world
but lose its soul? Why Should an Organization Care about its Soul? An organization with a soul has high employee morale.
With strong employee morale comes greater productivity
and profits.
An organization without a soul is prone to mismanagement,
corruption, greed, selfishness.
Such an organization ultimately collapses like Enron and the 50 financial institutions that have collapsed during the current recession. Dealing with
