By now, many leaders have realized that when it comes to business, nice guys often finish first. Old-fashioned images of corporate callousness and greed have been replaced by a gentler, more human conception of great leadership. But how does one define “kindness” in the context of business? This realistic book shows leaders how they can use sincerity, honesty, and respect for the good of their organizations. As the authors demonstrate in the case studies of Google and the Juilliard School, today’s business leaders must instill four qualities in their successors to ensure success: self-confidence, self-control, self-awareness, and self-determination. Compelling and realistic, Leading With Kindness leads the way to a prosperous and proud future for American business. This event was a presentation of the Patron Network of THIRTEEN and WLIW21, in cooperation with The New York Society Library. The Patron Network provides benefits for supporters of Thirteen/WNET and WLIW21 throughout the year.
