Positivity, Virtue & High Performance
D. Hess and Kim S. Cameron
is based upon honesty, respect, trust and dignity, and it regards
every employee within a company as a valued human being. This
book describes the characteristics of leaders who focus on positivity
and virtues to create and sustain highly successful organizations
such as Synovus Financial Corporation, HomeBanc Mortgage Company,
and the United States Marine Corps. It also addresses leader mistakes
and forgiveness, and how difficulties and challenges can be overcome
to achieve spectacular results. This inspiring book offers practical
advice that can be applied to individual leadership styles and
roles. As society tries to rebound from the recent scandals involving
fraud, financial improprieties, and unethical behavior among its
leadership, the fundamental message of Leading with Values is
clear: acting ethically and virtuously, and treating all stakeholders
with respect and dignity, can create extraordinary outcomes without
sacrificing performance and profits.
