One of the key fundamental aspects and distinctions of Landmark’s work, integrity, is featured in a new published article in Capitalism & Society, by Columbia University’s Center on Capitalism and Society. This prestigious economic journals presents provocative scholarship by distinguished thinkers. The article, Putting Integrity Into Finance: A Purely Positive Approach, is authored by Werner Erhard, creator of the est Training and the intellectual properties underpinning Landmark, and Michael C. Jensen, Ph.D., renowned economist and the Jesse Isidor Straus Professor of Business Administration, Emeritus, Harvard Business School.
This work powerfully and uniquely addresses those issues that have resulted in a stream of scandals in the financial sector over the past decade and imposed huge costs on many fronts. What makes Erhard and Jensen’s work so relevant is that, they don’t simply analyze the issues, but rather offer ways to intervene and cause radical and positive shifts in performance. Clearly, integrity is not the go-to category for most organizations or companies seeking to increase their profits. But what business leaders don’t realize is the ROI – return on integrity – that is possible, and tending to an organization’s integrity, as uniquely defined in this paper, has shown to have a dramatically positive effect on the bottom line.
