White Paper on Leadership Development and Behavioral Finance


Executive Summary

this article introduces the leadership development and behavioral finance combined with business acumen

Part 1: Conventional Leadership Approaches are Not Really Effective
Current leadership approaches failed to prevent the economic crisis.They are based on dated systems which focus on interpersonal skills and largely ignore impact on business outcomes, defined in financial and valuation terms.These leadership approaches have systemic flaws that prevent them from ever being fully effective in developing approaches that are useful for shareholders and investors, as opposed to employees.

Part 2: They Require Linkage to Business Outcomes
Classical economics and finance cannot meet this need because they are too simplistic in their approaches and assume that leaders are rational players. Behavioral economics and finance open up a totally new approach to leadership. But the also they do not address some major issues in decision-making that are crucial for real- world application.

Part 3: The Perth Model Provides the Missing Link
This new and enhanced approach is a behavioral discipline that allows prediction of actual financial outcomes at the level of the specific individual, team or company. This new model of financial outcomes allows us to identify and measure financial behaviors and link them directly to financial and valuation outcomes. This leads to a new leadership synthesis of atomistic behavior, business outcome and leadership
