Winners Never Cheat
Everyday Values We Learned As Children (But May Have Forgotten)
Wharton School Publishing, 2005
Kindergarten values – share, don't cheat, tell the truth – can make you a business leader. Now, go play well with others.
No matter what business you’re in, these principles apply to your work and your life. None of them are new - honor, fairness, honesty and respect are as old as time - but this is a refresher course that reinforces what you already know about morality and ethics. Author and successful business leader Jon M. Huntsman can cite himself as living proof that you don’t need to compromise your core values to become a success - or even a billionaire. If you’re a leader or aspire to be a leader in any field, this quick read is well worth your time. getAbstract recommends it to help you focus on values that the modern world often tramples. The message is sweet, simple and clear: stick to your beliefs staunchly, even if it costs you in the short term, because character, integrity and long-term results are what really count.
