Why Join a Professional Peer Group?

Have you ever been part of a small group of like-minded people who met together, with intentionality, on a regular schedule and for a period of 6-12 months or more? If yes, then you know how the power of community and small groups can be beneficial to members of the group. If not, you really ought to consider giving this a try.

Embezzlement: Who? When? Why?

Fraud TriangleThe “Fraud Triangle” is a term that is commonly used by anti-fraud professionals to highlight the three circumstances which exist in most fraud occurrences. Those facets are: financial pressure, opportunity, and rationalization. The idea is that if a person, 1) experiences pressure to need or want more cash, 2) feels he has the opportunity to steal and not get caught, and 3) rationalizes that it’s okay to do the stealing, then there’s a good chance he’ll do it.
