9780446532297: There's No Such Thing as

There's no such thing as business ethics. How can that be? Because a single standard applies to both your business and personal life-and it's one we all know and trust: the Golden Rule. Now bestselling author John C. Maxwell shows you how this revered ideal works everywhere, and how, especially in business, it brings amazing dividends. There's No Such Thing As "Business" Ethics offers: * Stories from history, business, government, and sports that illustrate how talented leaders invoked this timeless principle * Examples of difficult business decisions-layoffs, evaluations, billing clients, expansion-and how the Golden Rule applies to each * The five most common reasons people compromise their ethics-and how you can prevail over such moral obstacles * How applying the Golden Rule to business builds morale, increases productivity, encourages teamwork, lowers employee turnover, and keeps clients coming back. John C. Maxwell not only reveals the many ways the Golden Rule creates the perfect environment for business success, but does it with great wisdom, warmth, and humor. Backed by flawless research and the ideas of history's best thinkers, this engaging book brilliantly demonstrates how doing the right thing fosters a winning situation for all, with positive results for employees, clients, investors, and even your own state of mind. Business runs much more smoothly, profits increase, and you know that you've set the groundwork for years of future prosperity...and it's all thanks to the tried-and-true Golden Rule.

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.
