Editorial Reviews

"Here's a book that provides all the ingredients we desperately need in business performance: wakefulness, care, sustainability, stakeholder awareness, empathy, change, diversity, wisdom, culture, globalism, integrity, and the future – a winning package of paradigms that can only help us attain greater quality of life for all living beings!" - Dr. Marshall Goldsmith, author, MOJO and What Got You Here Won't Get You There"This book should be used - no, featured - in every MBA program worldwide. If we did, we might just get more healthy managers and organizations." - Dr. Ian I. Mitroff, author, Dirty Rotten Strategies, Managing Crises Before They Happen, and A Spiritual Audit of Corporate America"This exemplary collaborative effort is not only unusual in the way it was conceived through happenstance of location and purpose. It also stands as a testimony to how twelve strangers took their common love of educating students, enriched it with the seasoning of diverse views, yet delivered to students a thoughtful, balanced, and wise collage drawn from their years in the classroom. This dirty dozen gives a clean and fresh face to the understanding of collegiality." - Dr. Andre van Niekerk, dean, School of Business, Woodbury University"In the wake of the on-going economic turmoil and sluggish recovery from recession, a new type of leadership is needed - not the typical hard charging dictator whose word is law, but one who sees business leadership as a sacred calling to service. This book presents 12 thought-provoking and inspiring chapters that point the way to this new vision. Whether you already are a business leader or aspire to be one, this book will help guide you on the road to a better, healthier, more prosperous world." - Dr. Alan Lurie, author, Five Minutes on Mondays: Finding Unexpected Peace, Purpose, and Fulfillment at Work
