Good Leadership Requires Executives To Put Themselves Last

Michael Leven is a leader that is willing to put the company and its shareholders before his own interests.  A great example is when he told his shareholders before it was too late that the company is not going to make its forecasts which have a direct affect on his company.  He did this knowing that he might not make it and could possible lose his job.  If more executives put the company before their own paycheck companies in today’s age might not go under so easily.  The problems that executives are constantly faced with are whether or not they are earning what they are paid.  They think that just because of their position that they deserve a high pay.  This is completely the wrong view and executives need to instead build the company up and earn their salary as oppose to just expect it.
