Decent People, Decent Company: How to Lead with Character at Work and in Life

Book Description

Drawing on more than 25 years of experience working with hundreds of CEOs, managers and teams, the Turknetts provide both the inspiration and the tools to help people move from asking “Why don't they?” to asking “What can I?” With their original and dynamic Leadership Character Model, they have captured the essence of what it takes to revitalize attitudes and behavior, unleash leadership integrity and reinvigorate organizations. Decent People, Decent Company identifies the eight essential traits of leadership character: empathy, emotional mastery, lack of blame, humility, accountability, courage, self-confidence and focus on the whole. In chapters that focus on each quality individually, dozens of leaders, in their own words, bring to life the struggles and triumphs of developing the behaviors of character and ethical leadership required to bring out the best in everyone.
