Setting CEO Pay  Executive Compensation
 
05:57
In 1980, the average CEOs compensation was about 42 times what the average worker was paid, and by 2007, CEOs received about 344 times the average worker salary. Theres a debate over whether this ballooning of executive compensation is a failure of corporate governance, evidence of abuse of power, or just a reflection of market forces -- that top CEOs must be paid top dollar, or theyll take their (presumably irreplaceable) talents to other organizations. But how do companies arrive at these astronomical sums? In this edition of Smith Business Close-Up with the University of Marylands Robert H. Smith School of Business, Michael Faulkender, assistant professor of finance, shares his findings from research into executive compensation practices and how firms decide what to pay their CEOs. Faulkenders research focuses on empirical corporate finance, primarily in the areas of capital structure, risk management, corporate, liquidity, and executive compensation. His research has received recognition and awards from top academic journals and he has been awarded a research grant from the FDIC Center for Financial Research, which was accompanied by an appointment to serve as a fellow of the center during the term of the grant. He is a member of the American Finance Association, the Western Finance Association, and the Society of Financial Studies.

Becoming a “Leader of One”
 
05:43
“Leadership is not defined by titles and the future is not considered a destination, but a notion. It is a concept that is elusive yet we must strive to achieve it. In its pursuit, we executive our mission with excellence, we give renewed meaning to our purpose, and we shape ourselves in the process,” writes Gerald Suarez in his new leadership book. “We cannot take comfort in our present course because even if we are doing what seems to be fine today, it will not be enough tomorrow. Shaping the future is an ongoing, never-ending endeavor. In this edition of Smith Business Close-Up with the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business, Gerald Suarez talks about his new book, “Leader of One: Shaping Your Future Through Imagination and Design.” Suarez is a Professor of the Practice in Systems Thinking and Design. His book is a distillation and condensation of many years of research and his interaction and experiences with world leaders, corporate leaders, world-renowned educators and insightful students. He captured and vetted these ideas in real-life settings. Suarez says his book also pays tribute to the major influences in his thinking: the late Russell L. Ackoff, with whom he collaborated for 16 years; Dr. W. Edwards Deming, with whom he filmed the videotape series on Managing Fear in the Workplace; President Bill Clinton, with whom he traveled and worked for eight years, and Stephen R. Covey. The book extracts pragmatic insights from Suarez’s experience at the White House supporting two presidents from different administrations and from consulting and interacting with individuals and organizations in four continents. The book is rooted in sound theory and enhanced by the blend of real life applications.
