Lyceum commented on the following stories on BizSugar
Tony Johnston, I don't agree with the Canadian study that the ego is the biggest problem for potential accounting fraud. It is the lack of a true self and responsibility to the board, shareholders, coworkers, employees and parties in the whole supply chain, that is the root of the problem. The CEO should learn about leadership from some great authorities on the subject, e.g. Edwin A. Locke. The word ego is I (am) in Latin. Without individual responsibility, you will not have a company at all. "According to a new study by researchers from three Canadian universities, the biggest red flag for a potential accounting fraud is a CEO with a truly oversized ego.""
Anita, I use the word in the philosophical way. I have picked the word EGO for my blog for a reason. It is time to stand up for the individual and his or her right to engage in an exchange with other individuals. Words have meaning and it is important to understand how you come up with a concept. Tony Johnston: I propose that we protect ourselves against these types by writing down the rules and act accordingly to these. Disputes and fraudulent behavior should be taken care by an objective court system."
I think many people rely on the technology so much that they often miss point 9. "9. Don't bother with a backup plan. If you need a live Internet connection to demo a site, don't bother making a screen shot of the site in case the connection doesn't work. That way, you'll be at a complete loss for words when the connection fails." With that said, think about the business opportunity for a tech entrepreneur creating a simple system so the gadgets could talk to each other, e.g. projector and computer. Why don't we have an industry standard for this kind of equipment?"
