Risk Management in a Post-COVID World
John L. Daly, CPA, CMA, CPIM, MBA, Executive Education, Inc.
With each new crisis, surviving organizations revise their risk management plans, often modeling situations that look like the one just past. Whatever crisis troubles your organization next, it is not likely to be another pandemic, but may resemble some other crisis from the distant past.
Research shows that top-performing organizations do no better than their mediocre-performing peers at predicting the next crisis. However, because they do a better job at planning, they are better prepared when something else happens because they have the most important pieces of the solution in place. Get your organization, and your family, prepared for the next crisis that may affect you.

Devious Ethics: Dealing with Snakes in Suits
Richard A. Karwic, MBA, The Knowledge Institute
Good people believe everyone else is just like them. We cannot imagine someone could con us or our company and have no guilt or remorse. Lack of guilt and empathy are key traits of a psychopath. Experts estimate one out of 25 executives is a psychopath and may initially appear to be more normal than the rest of us. Psychopaths may present a convincing picture of virtue while helping themselves to money, status and power, leaving a path of shattered expectations, empty wallets, and broken hearts in their wake. Learn how to recognize and deal with others who have no conscience.
