Format: Hardcover
Although this book was originally published in 1989, its lessons are equally applicable to the modern-day business world.
In my mind, three principles stood out:
1) The importance of clear and concise communication to subordinates
2) The importance of being unconstrained by rigid rules and organizational norms, in preference of overriding principles and prejudices
3) The importance of leading for the long-term, rather than being motivated by short-term gain

Insightful and important Jan. 19 2014
By Abhishek K. Gupta - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The author lays the imperative for consistency and coherence between organizational aims, personal values, and individual actions as the founding ground for integrity. The book not only stimulates thinking on very real conflicting issues that have no clear answers but also presents new frameworks against which one can hone one's ability to decipher organizational complications. Especially, when one is striving to make effective and meaningful progress on multiple dimensions.
