Integrity Advantage, The

With The Integrity Advantage, Adrian Gostick and Dana Telford establish a burning platform-that personal integrity is a proven competitive advantage in business. Prominent business leaders from some of North America's most respected companies-including Don Graham of the Washington Post, former Johnson & Johnson CEO James Burke, and Hank Paulson, Jr. of Goldman Sachs-discuss the role integrity has played in their successes, and offer examples of the importance of integrity in business today. Not merely a collection of essays, the authors also share an effective system of decision-making designed to help anyone implement integrity into every action. The importance of trust and credibility within business relationships is examined and discussed, as Telford and Gostick illustrate how to juggle wealth, power, and responsibility-and be a person of character. < BR> Given the recent uncertainty fostered by questionable corporate tactics, however, now is the time to examine what role integrity actually plays in business today, and whether employees are naturally compelled to practice these values-particularly when the leaders they follow lack integrity in their own professional behavior.< BR> Dana Telford holds an MBA from Harvard University and has advised business leaders in the consumer banking, healthcare, publishing, retail, manufacturing, and real estate industries. He has developed and implemented strategies for client companies based all over the world. He lives in Morgan, Utah. < BR> Adrian Gostick is director of marketing and corporate communications with the O.C. Tanner Recognition Company. His previous books include Managing with Carrots and The 24-Carrot Manager, co-authored with Chester Elton. He lives in Salt Lake City.< BR>

In the sequel to the best-selling business book The Integrity Advantage, authors Adrian Gostick and Dana Telford take the concept of integrity in business to the next level: how to put integrity into action with your employees, your company, and your own life. The Integrity Advantage explained why integrity was so important—in this new sequel, Integrity Works, the authors tell you how to put the principles into action with personal stories of people who met challenges with integrity, a step-by-step process showing how leaders make difficult decisions with integrity, ways for leaders to identify integrity in others, and ways for them to build organizations with integrity. It's a complete roadmap to really putting these principles into action as a leader.

This is a no-nonsense look at the real benefits of what real integrity can bring to the business world. Integrity Works examines stories of real-life employees who live and work with integrity, and companies with corporate goals centered around honesty. Packed with case studies that reflect years of solid research and statistical evidence, Integrity Works demonstrates how taking the high road actually ensures a company's profitability, success, and survival.

One Who Is Not Busy, The : Connecting with Work in a Deeply Satisfying Way

The intense pressure of daily life gets to everyone eventually-we are all just too stressed out. The demands of modern lives-job, relationships, children, housework, exercise, meals, even spiritual fulfillment-combine to overwhelm and weigh us down. We seem to get through this struggle day by day, week by week, praying that we have the fortitude to survive until the next weekend, the next vacation, when we can totally crash. Along with the daily stress comes the edgy realization that despite all the effort we've made, we still don't have what we want. Even when everything seems caught up, contentment still eludes us. < BR> Author Darlene Cohen seeks to rejuvenate the weary professional, busy parent, and harried student by offering a path on which to walk away from exhausted frustration toward a holistic approach to time management. The One Who Is Not Busy introduces two fundamental and specific skills to make this happen: < BR> · the ability to narrow or widen the mind's focus at will< BR> · the mental flexibility to shift the mind's focus at will from one thing to another: to go from "narrow" to "narrow" to "narrow"< BR> Sound impossible? This is the notion of simultaneous inclusion. In The One Who Is Not Busy, Cohen illustrates that a person could be both busy and not busy at the same time by following six busy professionals through this unique process. Cohen affirms that it is learning to be simultaneously "busy" and "not busy" by living the principles of simultaneous inclusion that will allow us to experience work-and the rest of our lives-in a deeply meaningful way. < BR> In a culture that rewards only the final product, many professionals find themselves always looking to the next project, the next reward, the next vacation. Learn how to focus on the present, and stop missing what is right in front of you. < BR> Darlene Cohen, M.A., LMT, earned her graduate degree in physiological psychology and spent the majority of her Zen training-thirty years-as a laywoman. After developing rheumatoid arthritis, she became a movement teacher for people with joint restrictions, and was then certified as a massage and movement teacher. Currently, she sees clients and gives workshops, classes, lectures, and seminars that emphasize mindfulness, at various medical and meditation centers throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, Washington State, Illinois, and New York City. < BR>
