Today, for instance, Jessica points to a study just released by the Association of British Insurers that every CEO ought to consider a must-read, showing that public companies (in the U.K.) that practice great corporate governance outperform those who stray from the guidelines. How much better? An 18 percent difference in stock performance. (Think about that the next time you hear about a CEO getting a huge guaranteed payout without recommended performance triggers.) Also on BNET1 today, Jessica discovers another report out from Kellogg's School of Management that shows how praise from managers can often make a bad situation worse -- another surprising "find" that every boss ought to be aware of.
