CEO Roundtable Intensive: The Moral Use of Managerial Power

Tuesday, October 6, 2020 (8:30 AM - 9:45 AM) (CDT)


Many managers have never been made aware of just how much power they have over their employees.  With a word or a look, they can make employees afraid for their future and start a cancer of disengagement. Awareness is the key:  with few exceptions, people want to do the right thing, so the solution is to look directly at the importance and morality of power, talk about it, and create the right checks and and balances.  

Kathy Blumenfeld will set up this sensitive, but critical conversation by sharing stories from her deep experience in developing successful managers.  

Our discussion questions will include:

  1. When did you learn about managerial power?
  2. When is it appropriate for a manager to assert their power?
  3. What personal characteristics let managers use their power effectively?

We'll introduce the Code of Managerial Power and explore its four principles:  awareness, introspection, appropriateness and intention.

Our speaker:  Kathy Blumenfeld

Kathy is Wisconsin’s Secretary for the Department of Financial Resources.  She previously worked for TASC as EVP of Special Operations and led the Business Intelligence and Premium Services teams.
