I was having a look at some of the recent discussions on the CIPD Member LinkedIn Group, and I came across an ethical dilemma posted by Maurice Collis. I thought it was an interesting one, so am re-posting here, for your perusal! There was a lively debate about this on the original post: https://www.linkedin.com/groups/106184 (Please note - this is a members only group, although any CIPD member can request to join)
Leadership Dilemma: You are the CEO of a major company and yesterday one of your young "high potentials" secured a gold star contract. It was a major victory for him, you could say global. You went to bed well pleased. But in the morning you woke up to a phone call from your PA who asked you to switch on the TV news. There you see your young star caught on camera wreaking mild havoc in a street and being restrained. Your company's name is linked with the anti social behaviour and criminal damage. What do you do? He has a great future - or did. Do you fire or discipline and keep under watch?
Note: Based on a real case you may all know about from Rio, of course
Another little FYI - this particular part of the community is open to the public :)
