There's No Such Thing as "Business" Ethics: There's Only One Rule for Making Decisions
John C. Maxwell
0446532290
August 2003
Hardcover
·
 
From AudioFile
The author of THINKING FOR A CHANGE and THE 21 IRREFUTABLE LAWS OF LEADERSHIP uses his friendly baritone voice and moral groundedness to offer a classic lesson: Morality at work is no different from morality anywhere else, if you base your actions on the Platinum Rule, which is to treat others BETTER than you want to be treated yourself. With fresh-sounding aphorisms, history lessons, and stories from contemporary business life, Maxwell sells this simple idea with a personal authority that contains no smugness or conceit. His generous spirit and security with himself open the ear and heart to an audio lesson that should never go out of fashion.

Doing Business by the Good Book
David L. Steward

Jan 2004
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Jesus' teachings were not meant to be spoken only on Sunday, writes Steward, CEO of World Wide Technology Inc., the world's largest African-American-owned company. Rather, those teachings were meant to be implemented everywhere, including the workplace. In this book, Steward shares 52 biblical principles in short, easy-to-read chapters that can be digested once a week for a full year or devoured in one sitting. Steward draws heavily on his own knowledge of building a high-tech company from the ground up, and also his corporate experiences at FedEx and Union Pacific. He has a real knack for helping readers see how biblical principles relate to those experiences and to contemporary business issues. Even the trendy notion of "branding" is placed thoughtfully with a relevant Scripture (Matthew 12:33: "Either make...

Dr. Stephen Covey
"A persuasive, inspiring, and greatly needed message!" —

Book Description
Bestselling author and expert on leadership John C. Maxwell shares the only rule that matters--in business and in life. How does a person judge what is ethical? Sometimes it’s clear. In the past year or two, ethical lapses in corporate America have been well documented. But is it always easy to see where the line is in life? What’s the standard? And can it work in all situations? Maxwell thinks it can. In ETHICS 101, he shows how people can live with integrity by using the Golden Rule as their standard--regardless of religion, culture, or circumstances. Along the way, he delves into the desires of the human heart, reveals the five most common pitfalls that throw people off the ethical...

From Publishers Weekly
This year, Huntsman took his multibillion dollar eponymous petrochemical company public, pushing him even higher on the upper tiers of Forbes's wealthiest list. This little book is structured around old-school aphorisms ("Play by the Rules"; "Check Your Moral Compass") from which Huntsman draws an informal moral code. King's foreword touches on the big picture: Huntsman's unremarkable beginnings, his scholarship to Wharton, his founding and stewarding of Huntsman Chemical, his giant Salt Lake City home and his philanthropy-as well as Huntsman's struggles with cancer, and the family members he has lost to the disease. Huntsman's own chapters include mild rants against lawyers, the story of his son's "successful 2004 campaign for governor" of Nevada, tales of his other eight children, their travels, business deals...

James P. Owen

April 2005
Paperback
·
 
From the Back Cover
Having been rocked by one damaging revelation of misbehavior after another, Wall Street is in a state of crisis. Investors are disgusted by the misdeeds of a few and suspicious of the industry at large. Every firm finds its integrity open to question. Regulators are up in arms. And the industry is facing billions of dollars in costs to comply with a floodtide of new regulations.
But imagine what could happen if Wall Street firms looked back to a simpler time when a handshake was enough to seal a deal, and right and wrong were as clear as black and white. What if executives, portfolio managers, analysts, and traders decided that some things aren’t for sale? What if every major investment firm agreed to live by the principle that the client always comes first?
In words and images, Cowboy Ethics explores...

Small Giants : Companies That Choose to Be Great Instead of Big
Bo Burlingham
1591840937
December 29, 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
What do the Anchor Stream microbrewery and underground rock star Ani DiFranco have in common? The two are among Burlingham's examples of privately held businesses that have become "giants" in their field without becoming huge corporations. (And if you don't think being a rock star is a business, consider that DiFranco's dealings with local vendors in her Buffalo neighborhood have led to the creation of more than 100 new jobs.) For the 14 small companies profiled here, success comes by getting richer, not by getting bigger. Burlingham's central conceit, that these are companies that excel in generating "mojo," may seem abstract at first, but he carefully demystifies the term by focusing on issues like community relations and customer service. The owners he interviews speak from hard-won experience about resisting...


Integrity : The Courage to Meet the Demands of Reality
Henry Cloud
0060849681
February 1, 2006
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
For Cloud, an author, clinical psychologist and corporate consultant, integrity is more than just a person's ethics and morals. The French and Latin meanings of the word hint at its origins, "that the whole thing is working well, undivided, integrated, intact and uncorrupted." Achieving this "wholeness" requires the development of six character traits (creates trust, unafraid of reality, results-oriented, solves "negative realities," causes growth and finds meaning in life) which Cloud examines in great detail, using business stories like Proctor and Gamble's success in China and the experiences of his CEO friends and clients. What each of his stories has in common is how success, often wild success across multiple fields, is fueled by openness, honesty to one's self and to others and "true trust," which is borne...


The Power of Ethical Management

·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Addressing moral dilemmas in a time of influence peddling, insider trading and city-hall scandals, Blanchard (The One Minute Manager) and Peale (The Power of Positive Thinking) offer guidance in the form of a parable: a sales manager being pressed for results interviews a hot job candidate who promises that, if hired, he will disclose trade secrets of his former employer, a competitor. The sales manager agonizes over the ethics of the situation and seeks counsel with friends as well as a consultant who gradually puts things right with the help of an "ethics check" and "five principles of ethical power." The manager goes on to discover how company honesty and good feeling can be developed, with ensuing business success and profitability. The authors have produced a quick, inspirational read, with encouragement for...

The Disposable American : Layoffs and Their Consequences
Louis Uchitelle
1400041171
March 28, 2006
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Devoting a book to the necessity of preserving jobs is perhaps a futile endeavor in this age of deregulation and outsourcing, but veteran New York Times business reporter Uchitelle manages to make the case that corporate responsibility should entail more than good accounting and that six (going on seven) successive administrations have failed miserably in protecting the American people from greedy executives, manipulative pension fund managers, leveraged buyouts and plain old bad business practices. In the process, he says, we've gone from a world where job security, benevolent interventionism and management/worker loyalty were taken for granted to a dysfunctional, narcissistic and callous incarnation of pre-Keynesian capitalism. The resulting "anxious class" now suffers from a host of frightening ills: downward...

This book should be on the reading list of every student regardless of their career choice." —Larry Pinnt, Chairman, Cascade Natural Gas

From AudioFile
Writer/orator Og Mandino draws on his storytelling skill to inspire us ‡ la Andrew Carnegie, Norman Vincent Peale et al. His message and style probably work best on the credulously hopeful. More personality shines in his voice than in his prose. Probably more spontaneous when speaking before a live audience, he exudes cracker-barrel New England tone. Y.R.
