Abstract:

[What] shape have our lives taken in today's working world? Consider the fact that while 80 percent of adults claim that they would work even if they had enough money never to have to worry, the majority of them can hardly wait to leave their jobs and get home ... Yet our work places do not have to be the source of drudgery and dissatisfaction. [In this book, the author] reveals the values that have served the leaders as a blueprint for doing business that is "good" in both senses: the material and the spiritual. [The book] draws primarily on the experiences of leaders of major corporations, the lessons it teaches are relevant for improving one's work life at any level - from entry position to manager. [The book is] for anyone who values the contribution of individuals in the changing world of business.-Dust jacket.
