Abstract and Keywords
Executives and the management profession provide an important public service in a free economy. This public service is achieved through the products and services their organizations offer as well as through job and wealth creation. Executive well-being underpins the ability to produce these benefits. Therefore, building positive executive well-being has individual and collective value, while negative executive well-being is a threat to the executive, organization, family, and community. This chapter focuses attention on the large majority of executives who make positive contributions to the public good. The authors also discuss those few who do wrong, make negative headlines, and tarnish the management profession.
