In the media: Laura Roberts, CEO Pantheon Enterprises and Austin Business Journal

Austin Business Journal “Face 2 Face” speaker series with Laura Roberts, CEO, Pantheon Enterprises

Chad Swiatecki
Staff Writer Austin Business Journal

To become the successful CEO of a forward-thinking chemical company, Laura Roberts had to go from grade school to the school of hard knocks.

During the Austin Business Journal’s monthly Face 2 Face series event Tuesday at Whole Foods Market Inc. s Austin headquarters, Roberts talked about the journey from teaching, which had been her lifelong passion, to leading Phoenix-based Pantheon Enterprises. The company, which has about 50 employees and customers such as Vista Outdoor, is innovating in the world of manufacturing chemicals by creating new formulas that have no negative impact on health or the environment.

Roberts became involved in the business world by helping to manager her father’s small but unprofitable cleaning chemicals business after his death, learning that she’d have to turn the company in a new direction for it to survive. Concern over the negative effects of many industrial chemicals, and concern over the world her children would inherit, caused her to take a green approach to the business.

“When I was younger I was a tree hugger and I had a Kill Corporate America T-shirt,” she said. “But a big shift happened when I realized how much good we could do. The real bulk of the work is figuring out how you get people to change.”

Launching a whole new company wound up being the best strategy for making Roberts’ newfound passion a reality, but it wasn’t easy. She said she was denied by potential investors 300 times before she found one that believed in her vision.

“Only take money from shareholders who are purpose-aligned with you,” she said of turning down term sheets from venture capitalists who wanted almost immediate liquidity. “Not having that can kill the deal, or you later have to sell to get out from under them.”

Holding tight to her vision and belief that industrial companies can operate in an environmentally friendly way led Forbes magazine to call Roberts “The Toxic Avenger” in a company profile. She has embraced that characterization because it helped bring attention to the cause that Pantheon is trying to further.

“You’re in business to maximize shareholder value, but we’re trying to raise the discourse,” she said. “If you’re building profits on the backs of the general population then you’re not really approaching it right. The more transparent you are, the more your shareholders love you.”

Boston Business Journal: Quenching Millennials’ thirst for professional development #home #business #ideas #for #women

Quenching Millennials’ thirst for professional development

Quenching Millennials’ thirst for professional development

An employer’s perspective, as shared by William K. Bacic. New England managing partner, Deloitte LLP

As discussed in my previous posts. it is no secret that Millennials are, to put it in simple terms, taking over. Not only do members of this generation comprise a majority of today’s workforce (surpassing Generation X in 2015 ), but studies show that by 2020, Millennials will comprise an even larger share (75 percent) of the labor market .

Because anyone born after 1982 is considered a Millennial, we’ve already started to see some Millennials taking leadership positions. As Baby Boomers retire, older, more professionally experienced, Millennials are often assuming vacant leadership roles. While there may be some challenges as a new generation of leaders takes over, there are also great opportunities for business leaders (including increased talent retention).

As executives, we are able to cultivate the leadership development programs that Millennials crave. Not only does this give us, experienced professionals, a chance to share the knowledge we’ve accumulated over the years, but also allows us to help members of our millennial workforce gain the necessary confidence to lead our organizations in the future.

Research shows that Millennials want to spend more time improving their leadership abilities, through development programs. Specifically, in an ideal work week, Millennials would like to see the time devoted to leadership skills development increase by two-thirds.

Survey results show that right now, on average, employers dedicate 2.7 hours per week to professional development; Millennials would like to see this increase to 4.5 hours per week.

Investing this time in building leadership skills not only for Millennials but for all professionals may result in stronger future leaders for organizations, as well as help retain talent. Millennials who are satisfied with their development opportunities, including mentoring, are twice as likely to stay with a company than those Millennials who are unsatisfied.

At Deloitte, we pride ourselves on being a place where leaders, of all generations, can thrive. Perhaps the most tangible example of our commitment to leadership development is Deloitte University. our leadership and learning center in Westlake, Texas. Here, we offer leadership classes, training, and the opportunity for networking. The importance of face-to-face learning is showcased at Deloitte University.

In addition to the training offered at Deloitte University, we also provide opportunities for our professionals to take on-demand training programs through our online learning portal, or enroll in live, instructor-led programs held at our offices. Through these programs, our people take ownership of their careers—and it helps fill Deloitte’s leadership pipeline with a diverse mix of high-performing professionals.

As I’ve written in the past, another important part of leadership development programs, including those for Millennials, is mentorship. Millennials often benefit from hearing advice from those who are currently in leadership positions. However, instead of stopping at mentorship, why not take it one step further and incorporate “sponsorship” programs into your organization. These programs will not only benefit Millennials but will provide opportunities for all professionals. Sponsors’ chief role is to develop their team member into a leader. In fact, at Deloitte, career sponsors, and program participants come up with development plans that are tailored to that participant. This way, sponsors have a vested interest, and participants have support from someone who can vouch for them.

As Deloitte’s CEO, Cathy Engelbert explained to Bloomberg News. “I think the key for everyone is around getting a sponsor in your organization… Those sponsors to me have been so important… I never aspired to be the CEO but I did aspire to lead because someone early in my career gave me that great advice to build your capability.”

At Deloitte, and likely at your organization, people are our greatest assets. As business leaders, we should encourage a long tenure. I encourage you to help shape Millennials’ leadership skills, through expanding professional development, including growing, and developing mentorship, and sponsorship programs.

Journal of Business Ethics on JSTOR #business #listing

#business articles 2010


Journal of Business Ethics

Coverage: 1982-2012 (Vol. 1, No. 1 – Vol. 111, No. 4)

1982-2012 – Journal of Business Ethics

A title history is the publication history of a journal and includes a listing of the family of related journals. The most common relationship is to a previous and/or continuing title, where a journal continues publishing with a change to its official title. Other common relationships include a journal that is a supplement to another journal, a journal that is absorbed into another journal, a journal that splits into two or more new journals, or two or more journals that merge to form a new journal. For each of these related journals, the title history lists the dates published.

Journal of Business Ethics

Description: The Journal of Business Ethics publishes original articles from a wide variety of methodological and disciplinary perspectives concerning ethical issues related to business. Since its initiation in 1980, the editors have encouraged the broadest possible scope. The term ‘business’ is understood in a wide sense to include all systems involved in the exchange of goods and services, while ‘ethics’ is circumscribed as all human action aimed at securing a good life. Systems of production, consumption, marketing, advertising, social and economic accounting, labour relations, public relations and organisational behaviour are analysed from a moral viewpoint. The style and level of dialogue involve all who are interested in business ethics – the business community, universities, government agencies and consumer groups.

Speculative philosophy as well as reports of empirical research are welcomed. In order to promote a dialogue between the various interested groups as much as possible, papers are presented in a style relatively free of specialist jargon.

Coverage: 1982-2012 (Vol. 1, No. 1 – Vol. 111, No. 4)

The “moving wall” represents the time period between the last issue available in JSTOR and the most recently published issue of a journal. Moving walls are generally represented in years. In rare instances, a publisher has elected to have a “zero” moving wall, so their current issues are available in JSTOR shortly after publication.
Note: In calculating the moving wall, the current year is not counted.
For example, if the current year is 2008 and a journal has a 5 year moving wall, articles from the year 2002 are available.

Terms Related to the Moving WallFixed walls: Journals with no new volumes being added to the archive. Absorbed: Journals that are combined with another title. Complete: Journals that are no longer published or that have been combined with another title.

Subjects: Business & Economics, Business, Philosophy, Humanities

    Marketing fees paid to Avvo violate New Jersey lawyer conduct rules, ethics opinion says


    ‘Marketing fees’ paid to Avvo violate New Jersey lawyer conduct rules, ethics opinion says

  • Tweet
  • Lawyers in New Jersey can’t participate in client-linking services offered by Avvo because of ethics issues stemming from the company’s “marketing fee,” according to a joint ethics opinion by three New Jersey Supreme Court committees.

    The fee paid to the company violates the ban on lawyer-referral payments and the ban on sharing fees with nonlawyers, the June 21 opinion said. The New Jersey Law Journal (sub. req.) has a story.

    Two other services linking clients to lawyers, LegalZoom and Rocket Lawyer, appear to be offering legal services plans that would pass muster under those ethics rules if they were registered with the courts’ administrative office, as required by such rules, the opinion said.

    The ethics opinion found that none of the companies interfered with the independent professional judgment of participating lawyers, and no violation of lawyer trust account regulations by Avvo s practice of holding fees until legal services are performed.

    The opinion was issued by the Advisory Committee on Professional Ethics, the Committee on Attorney Advertising and the Committee on the Unauthorized Practice of Law. The New Jersey Bar Association had sought the ethics opinion, according to a press release .

    The opinion describes the services offered by three companies websites.

    Avvo offers two legal services products through its website: Avvo Advisor and Avvo Legal Services. Consumers who use Avvo Advisor pay a flat fee for a 15-minute phone conversation with a lawyer, while consumers who use Avvo Legal Services purchase specific services, such as an uncontested divorce, for a flat fee.

    Avvo places the flat fee into the lawyer’s bank account, then withdraws a “marketing fee.” The ethics opinion said the marketing fee is an impermissible referral fee, rather than a fee for the cost of advertising, as well as an impermissible shared fee.

    The opinion cited ethics opinions in Ohio, South Carolina and Pennsylvania that found marketing fees charged by “Avvo-type companies” were improper referral fees or constituted impermissible fee sharing.

    Consumers who use LegalZoom’s Business Advantage Pro and Legal Advantage Plus pay a flat monthly fee for legal advice. Users can then purchase additional services from participating lawyers at a discounted rate. LegalZoom retains the monthly subscription fees.

    Consumers who use Rocket Lawyer’s legal services plan pay a flat fee for limited legal advice on document-related matters and a free 30-minute lawyer consultation. Rocket Lawyer keeps the subscription fees, and participating lawyers offer legal services at discounted rates.

    Avvo’s chief legal officer, Josh King, told the New Jersey Law Journal that Avvo is happy the legal opinion found the company doesn’t interfere with lawyers’ professional judgment. But Avvo is “disappointed that the committees focused solely on mechanistic application of the rules rather than what the law requires: consumer protection and respect for the First Amendment,” he said.

    “Avvo is attempting to address the pressing need for greater consumer access to justice, and we will continue to do so despite this advisory opinion” he said.
