Day Family Ethics Lecture: Linda Trevino "Ethical Leadership Top to Bottom: When it Works and When it Fails"
Tuesday, March 28
4:25pm – 5:40pm EST
B09 Sage Hall
Sage Hall Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 14853, United States
Event Details
Professor Treviño will discuss both her work on ethical leadership more generally (as key to creating and sustaining ethical culture) and some recent research. The latter shows how leaders setting high goals at the top can lead to a corruptive improvisation process among supervisory leaders who then coerce employees to either meet the goals or at least appear to do so. This helps to explain examples such as the scandals at the VA, Wells Fargo, and perhaps Volkswagen.

Linda Treviño, Distinguished Professor of Organizational Behavior and Ethics at Penn State, is Director of the Shoemaker Program in Business Ethics at the Smeal College of Business. She is one of the country’s leading scholars in business ethics, having made important contributions to the study of ethical leadership and the influence of organizational culture on ethical behavior, among other areas. The author of a number of award-winning papers in management, she has published over eighty articles and several books, including one of the most popular textbooks in business ethics.
