There’s been a rash of news of late with investors and CEOs behaving badly. We’re all well aware of the sexual harassment upheaval underway where I live and work in Silicon Valley. We’ve also heard about some in leadership positions who have taken bribes or participated in unethical activities.

It’s good news that people are speaking up; we need more awareness and visibility on these issues.  But we can’t just wait for whistleblowers. Leaders play the most significant role in ending these problems. They must examine how they can prevent abuse from happening and take a critical look at their own behaviors.
