Sunday June 23rd was the 100th anniversary of the birth of Alan Turing, a man regarded as one of the most influential mathematicians of the 20th Century. He is viewed as one of the pioneers of computer technology. However, he is probably best known for leading the British effort at Bletchley Park where the Germans top secret codes were broken during the Second World War (WWII), including the code they believed to be unbreakable, the Enigma Code. His work during WWII was completed before he was 35 years of age.
I thought about Turing and his success at a relatively young age whilst reading a ‘Corner Office’ article in the Sunday New York Times (NYT), entitled “Let Everyone Swim, But Just Make Sure You’re in the Pool”, by reporter Adam Bryant. In the article Bryant profiles Angie Hicks, one of the co-founders of Angie’s List and its current Chief Marketing Officer. Hicks had some interesting observations on leadership that I found applicable to creating a functional compliance effort within an organization, from compliance professionals to ethical leadership.
