Product Description

Review

"Camelot, Inc. provides a most thoughtful framework for thinking through some of today's biggest business leadership challenges. It's a thoroughly enjoyable read." (Brian T. Gladden, Senior Vice President and CFO, Dell Computer and former President, GE Plastics)

"Oestreicher's book goes well beyond the depiction of King Arthur and his court. The complicated relationships between leader and managers, the balance between personal and work lives, and the conflict between idealism and pragmatism are as much a part of today's business world as they were in medieval England." (Richard Edelman, President and CEO, Edelman)

"Camelot, Inc. gets to the heart of the mentoring role in growing and sustaining enterprises―both large and small. In our increasingly 'virtual' business and social environment, Paul Oestreicher shows how critical mentoring is to passing along core values to the next generation of leaders." (Victor R. Budnick, Managing Director, Ironwood Capital; Lead Venture Mentor, Yale Enterprise Institute)

"The dos and don'ts in Camelot, Inc. highlight the enduring characteristics of protecting and building personal and corporate reputation. Oestreicher has found a compelling way to teach us as much what to do as what not to do." (John Doorley, Academic Director, graduate program in Public Relations and Corporate Communication, New York University; Coauthor of Reputation Management)

"Camelot, Inc. is a remarkable ‘mining' of lessons from the Arthurian legends. Oestreicher has found timeless prescriptions for achieving excellence in leadership." (L. Patrick Gage, PhD, enGage Biotech Consulting, former president, Genetics Institute and Wyeth Research)

"As a child, my introduction to human drama in literature was through the tales of King Arthur and the Knights of the Roundtable. Truly everything you need to know about human values is found in these tales. Paul Oestreicher recognizes that these tales hold timeless lessons for leaders as he brings the reader inside the Roundtable." (Greg Simon, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Policy, Pfizer and Former Chief Domestic Policy Advisor to Vice President Al Gore)
