From the Paper:

"Several years ago the most successful CEOs were the models for effective team management and leadership upon which most business circles and academic programs built their leadership models. Yet, after the endless scandals beginning with Enron organizational management is realizing that these role models for effective leadership within an organization are not necessarily the most ideal in regards to effective team management and strategic vision: "Jack Welch, the former CEO of General Electric, is often used as a model of business leadership. Welch's excessive focus on immediate business objectives prevented him from leading through a broader and more humane moral horizon."(Thompson, 2004, para.1). As it turns out, such short-term, performance based objectives, while accomplishing the immediate task at hand, rarely return positive results in the long term."
