In this case, the director of human resources for a financial advisory firm learns that the
CEO of the firm is using his power and his position for personal gain, engaging in
actions that cross the line of acceptable ethical and legal behavior.
This case deals with issues of conflicting loyalties, individual and organizational reputations, reporting a superior, abuse of power, stakeholder relationships, and short-term versus long-term implications. It works well in organizational behavior, leadership, and ethics courses, as well as
in stand-alone workshops.
