Summary of Absolute Honesty
Building a Corporate Culture that Values Straight Talk and Rewards Integrity
If honesty isn’t innate in your organization, you can foster it by following six basic rules. Number 1: Tell the truth.
This handy guide endeavors to reduce the complex challenge of ethical leadership - with which great minds have struggled for thousands of years - to six simple and absolute rules of honesty. The authors, Larry Johnson and Bob Phillips, clearly explain each rule of absolute honesty they have derived and provide many illustrative anecdotes and examples drawn from daily life. There is a fascinating, moving story of one co-author’s unforgettable experience as a high school track star, and another account about a couple whose marriage ended in divorce after the wife insisted on acting dishonestly. Perhaps the authors believed that this volume would move even the greatest crooks to resolute and unswerving honesty. Alas, that is beyond their scope. However getAbstract.com finds that ordinary businesspeople seeking general guidelines might find useful counsel here. Hey, at least it’s a start.
In this summary, you will learn
- The six laws of honesty
- How to create and sustain a culture of honesty and ethical conduct
