Awesome book if YOU want to make a difference.
"If your only goals are to be successful in business and to make a lot of money, you will grow to be a bitter old man or woman....I have always believed that you can run a company to obtain selfish goals by using intimidating management techniques only for a certain period of time. Sooner or later, the people who work for you will figure you out. They will figure you out, and either try to cheat you back or quit. In either case, you reach a point of zero growth, or possibly bankruptcy...Somewhere along the way, American business developed the idea that the job of a manager is to make people work. The can be a problem, because people don't like to be made to do anything. Of course, there must be some supervision of less experienced people by those more experienced. But, in some businesses, people are valued less than the office furniture....You show people how they can succeed, help them to achieve personal success, and your own success and the success of your company is assured...."
