ENUMCLAW, Wash., Feb. 9 /Christian Newswire/ -- The Associated Press reported the arrival of former Enron Executive, Richard A. Causey, at Bastrop Federal Correctional Institution in early January 2007.
Causey, a former chief accounting officer, begins a five-year prison term sentence for his part in the collapse of the company named six years running as “America’s Most Innovative Company” by Fortune prior to Enron declaring bankruptcy in 2001.
But Enron is only one of many such corporate scandals; other companies wrestling the affects of internal corruption include Adelphia, Fannie Mae, Parmalat, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Tyco, Worldcom, and Rite Aid Corp.
Leadership Consultant and author Larry Matejka says the bottom line to all this corporate fraud is selfish motives creating massive deception.. He states, “Selfishness leads to lack of motivation for the good of others which leads to deception.”
In his new book, “The Three Life Leadership Lessons” (WinePress, 2006), Matejka offers manageable steps to facilitate growth and maximize potential in a variety of leadership roles. In a day where he says leadership skills have been buried, Matejka writes for the sole purpose of resurrecting them.
While he admits the term leadership is often synonymous with higher-level roles within companies and other large organizations, Matejka defines leadership as “Any position that provides the opportunity to positively influence the lives of others in a lasting way.” Under this description, Matejka suggests leadership roles manifest themselves in most work situations, in church ministries, in volunteer positions, and even in parenting.
An Organizational Development Director for a mid-western service company, Matejka uses real-world perspective to help readers tap into pre-existing leadership resources. He has spent the last twenty-five years honing his leadership skills and training other leaders.
With a passion to make a difference in the world, Larry is also the local President of Love INC, a 27 year old ministry connecting people to resources, as well as being the President of Life Leadership Lessons, a training and consulting company dedicated to improving leadership and culture for non profit and for profit organizations. Larry is the father of three adopted African American children, he and his family live in Cleveland, Ohio.
