Gladys and the Narcissistic Knight


1. David exhibits both traits of a charismatic leader and traits of a narcissist. Identify his most notable attributes and discuss the pros and cons of such traits in a business leader. How do you think David’s personality impacted Gladys throughout the case? Do you believe Gladys is “naive” as David claims? Explain. (Hint: do some research on charismatic leaders and narcissists to answer this requirement). 

2. IMA members (including student members) are bound by the IMA Statement of Ethical Professional Practice (IMA SEPP). Consider the progression of the ethical situation in which Gladys is involved. Reflect on the issues with which Gladys’ is confronted in light of the IMA SEPP and respond to the following:

a. Identify the first ethical issue with which Gladys is confronted. Explain the ethical dilemma and the players impacted by the issue. Did Gladys handle this situation ethically? Explain. What actions could she have taken at this point to avoid future issues? 

b. Identify the IMA SEPP principles/standards that apply to Gladys’ situation. Discuss Gladys’ actions/options as the situation evolves in light of the identified principles/standards. Explain the risks of such actions/options. 

c. David’s “ambitious” plan evolved into an inflated report that put Gladys in a difficult position. If Gladys fails to act in response to the report, will she be in violation of the IMA SEPP? Explain. If Gladys fails to act and the issue is discovered, will she be held responsible even though David changed her report? Discuss.

d. Imagine you are Gladys and consider how you would respond to the inflated report. Write an ending to the case that clearly portrays your advocated course of action for Gladys, the risks involved, and the ultimate impacts on the players (include actions, dialogue, and/or internal thoughts as appropriate). 

3. Envision yourself in a similar situation in a real-world business setting. Discuss appropriate ways to deal with a narcissistic leader such as David in a constructive manner consistent with professional standards. How might such actions mitigate the risk of ending up in a situation similar to the one Gladys faced?
