9780595258277: Once Upon a Corporation: Leadership Insights from Short Stories

Once Upon a Corporation: Leadership Insights from Short Stories is a set of 27 tongue-in-cheek, short fictions drawn from work lifeparodies, satires, parables, Socratic dialogues and straight storieswritten to both delight and enlighten. Readers will get the message of each story by insight and reflection, following the successes and failures of characters that perform ordinary tasks in extraordinary ways. The stories highlight some important values of leadership, including caring for others and trying to empower them; they urge taking a stand and speaking out when organizational excellence or personal dignity are at stake; and they show ways of using ones brains to prevail ethically by presenting worthwhile views with commitment and sound logic. This is a unique collection of imaginative fictions, written specifically about todays work life, and supported by thirty years of the authors organizational experience in professional, management and teaching roles.An outstanding contribution to todays business literature.Irving Weiser, Chairman and CEO, Royal Bank of Canada Dain RauscherThis is an excellent job of conveying managerial concepts in a concise manner It is easy reading and yet very instructive.Lloyd P. Johnson, Past Chairman and CEO, Norwest CorporationThe stories have some outstanding lessons and insights.William W. George, Past President and CEO, Medtronic, Inc.
