Leadershipnow.com / The Best Leadership Books of 2008 By now, many leaders have realized that when it comes to business, nice guys often finish first. Old-fashioned images of corporate callousness and greed have been replaced by a gentler, more human conception of great leadership. But how does one define 'kindness' in the context of business? And what is the best way to 'use' this deceptively complex notion as a guiding principle to lead an organization successfully into the future? Far from presenting a naive idea of kindness, this eye-opening book identifies the surprising attributes successful 'kind' leaders share.
