This is the second in a series of four posts on insights for compliance officers from different fields of study. Last week’s post was about lessons from psychology regarding motivation and choice, from prominent figures such as Abraham Maslow and Sheena Iyengar. Today’s post will discuss insights from self-development and coaching. Next Tuesday’s post will be about insights from behavioral economics. Finally, on March 13, the last post in this series will discuss how business management theories can be useful for compliance officers.
Much like the insights from psychology discussed in last week’s post linked above, theory of self-development and coaching can be very useful for creating and cultivating a culture of compliance at both the individual and organizational levels. Focusing on thoughtful growth and progress, inner success and ethical achievement, and a values-based, sustainable approach to strategy and mission are all necessary for fostering integrity in organizations and groups or people within them. Motivational writings on paths to self-development and tips for effective coaching can translate easily to informing a compliance culture.
