The executive leadership team of any company is the key influencer for both the growth and governance of the business. Today, company integrity must fuel strategic decisions, but these decisions do not come easy. An essential component to the growth model, M&A is layered with challenges that can place integrity at risk when stepping outside of the pure financial benefits. Having a strong culture of ethics already in place can help unburden the process, especially at the integration phase. Here from top leaders as they explore lessons learned from their own growth activities, factor ethical considerations that drive executive level decisions and leverage culture as the greatest equalizer to enrich the events that shape the company.
