The economy has many of us stressed! Business drives our economy. So the question is are corporate CEO's the cause of your stress?. This week two very different public expressions in the news around corporate CEO's.
Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan has said his bank's new $5 fee debit card fee is justified because the bank "has a right to make a profit," according to CNN Money.
Contrast Mr. Moynihan with the loss of Apple CEO Steve Jobs has filled the airwaves with his quotes including...."Our goal is to make the best devices in the world, not to be the biggest."...and "A lot of companies have chosen to downsize, and maybe that was the right thing for them. We chose a different path. Our belief was that if we kept putting great products in front of customers, they would continue to open their wallets. "
And finally, there is the Occupy Wall Street movement that began three weeks ago in Lower Manhattan and has spread across the U.S. Demonstrators from New York City to San Francisco took to the streets to protest what they call a growing wealth disparity between CEO driven large U.S. corporations and average citizens in the wake of the financial crisis.

We will discuss his new book, Sins and CEOs: Lessons from Leaders and Losers, That Will Change Your Career, by Richard A. Moran. (www.richardmoran.com ) In this book, through the telling of true stories (but keeping company and CEO names private to protect individuals, share prices, and his future employment), he addresses nine common offenses, including sins of omission, which are easier to hide and justify, as well as the most egregious intentional sins. While indicting business leaders, Moran makes clear that we are all CEOs—that is, everyone is in charge of something, whether it’s a department, project team, volunteer committee, or family unit—and we are all guilty.
