In business, it is no longer necessary to sacrifice integrity and peace of mind in favor of profits. Successful Fortune 500 executive James A. Autry effectively explodes the myth that "nice guys finish last" in what is perhaps the most practical, honest and humane management book ever written -- an indispensable handbook that explores every aspect of the fine art of creative and caring leadership.A unique primer for business in the '90s, Love and Profit offers clear, direct and compassionate guidance, dealing situation by situation with the most difficult decisions every manager must inevitably face -- from motivating high achievers to letting nonproductive employees go. A rare and innovative work, it will enable you to manage brilliantly and profitably during the day ... and sleep well at night.

"Management is, in fact, a sacred trust in which the well-being of other people is put in your care during most of their waking hours." Autry, the president of Meredith Corporation's magazine group, believes this, and as a result looks at management in a slightly different way from many management theorists. In a series of brief chapters, he examines how a caring manager might handle a wide variety of situations most managers face. Following many of these chapters are poems that in a truly remarkable way tell vignettes to help explain what the chapter was about. This is highly recommended for business how-to collections.
