It's True That Many People Believe They Need to Cheat in order to win. But, it simply not true. It's a classic Short Term Thinking. This Book Provide different perspective on how to win in business with Great Ethics. It's a good read & refreshing.
Having a high degree of integrity in leadership can be realized over the long term by producing better results, sometimes far better results; sometimes a lack of integrity can produce no result at all or at best a very poor result. There's a whole lot of other things that tie in with an ethical approach as well, including building businesses through innovation for the long term, which even shows in general economic growth and prosperity on both a national and even a global level.
Entire nations that are built from a sound ethical basis will in the long run last longer and produce more wealth and happiness for their inhabitants. On the contrary unethically built and run nations generally only last as long as they can be controlled, which is often a much shorter time span - there are numerous examples. The hard part is persuading today's leaders to adopt a new and untried democratic approach to leadership and that it is good for their businesses, their globalized corporations and even their countries - pragmatism still reigns supreme in many minds and leading in a more democratic manner requires not only a more highly skilled work force, but also vastly more capable leadership skills that test even the wisest minds of our time; but the new age of more innovation and less operational repetition requires that we must adapt in order to compete on both a micro-cosmic and a macro-cosmic level because if we do not then someone else will and we will simply be out of business!
The result is that not only is a more skilled work force is required through education, but also that the art of leadership requires change as well and that includes education and practice and that change is already happening and has been going on since the mid to late 1990's in some parts of the world (Northern California probably begin the first and most obvious example).
The book is a quick read but highlights the needs for ethical behavior. It had simple checks and rules that could have helped as a commander in the Army and manager. It builds at the individual and organizational behavior can be guided. I should have read this earlier.
I first read this book in the eighties as part of the 'One-minute Manager' series. It has probably been dismissed by many as an irrelevance, but if its principles were applied by all, and particularly by executives in all sectors, governmental, public and private, society would be better served. But some hope! However, it is an easy-to-read work, written frankly and courageously. It's worth a read.
Love the book, a must read to Anyone wanting to lead and being able to communicate with others. Not everyone has the same work ethic. So this is a great book to establish those expectations in ur company.
I love these authors, so when I found a book at a nice price, I jumped on it. The condition was good and the dust cover was a little stained,but no big deal, the book was in good conditions. I would order from this sender again because of the timing and condition of the item.
