Editorial Reviews. Review. "A persuasive, inspiring, and greatly needed message!" — -- Dr. Stephen Covey. About the Author. John C. Maxwell is a #1 New York. John C. Maxwell is a #1 New York Times bestselling author, coach, and speaker who has sold more than 24 million books in fifty languages. Often called. A few years ago, I published a book called Ethics In it, I proposed that ethics was not a changeable thing, based on your situation or personality or industry.
By Ratko Leadership is one of those topics that makes me uneasy, only because it seems to attract charlatans, especially within the corporate world. But there is nothing mysterious or negative about true leadership. Author John C. Maxwell proves this with his refreshing book, Leadership While the title of the book does sound basic and unoriginal, the content of the book is surprisingly strong. It covers the topic of leadership — within the context of an organization — in a very clear and concise manner.
How would I like to be treated in this situation? This way of thinking is easy to understand and is accepted by most people. Companies that operate this way are consistently more profitable than those that don't. It also work This book was published in the time of the collapse of Enron.
It also works really well as a personal compass. Before a person can change their business, they need to adopt the Golden Rule as their personal integrity guideline. Make your decisions, personal and business, accordingly. Some people blame their choices on circumstances. Other people make good choices regardless of circumstances. Which are you? Doing nothing is also a decision.
Consider asking others to hold you accountable for your decisions. There are many things that keep a person from adopting the Golden Rule.
Most corporate ethics violations come from "cooking the books," so there can be lots of pressure to not say anything. Those in power sometimes feel that the assets of the company are their personal checking account, to be spent any way they want who cares about ethics, I want it now.
Having pride in yourself is a good thing. An excessive amount of pride, focusing only on yourself and your interests, is a bad thing. After the Great Recession, it sure seems like there are a whole new generation of business leaders who need to read this book.
It's short, very easy to understand, and each chapter has in-depth discussion questions. It is very much worth the reader's time. Jan 05, Matt Leiv rated it it was amazing. A very good, very short read. Maxwell takes what is generally a long dry subject and makes it short and sweet, basing an ethical argument on the golden rule.
He talks about how ethics used to be part of a standard curriculum in the US and by the s had almost completely disappeared from schools, and now completely gone to our great misfortune.
He talks about how we are in the generation of situational ethics-what feels right at the time is what is right to do-which is destroying our culture. I could quote from every page in this book. I think everyone should read this book.
The one rule for making decisions is the Golden Rule. What a great idea for people to use the Golden Rule for how they deal with others!
The world could be so much better if, say, politicians used the Golden Rule! A book that every business aspirant must read. John Maxwell clearly puts some points in the reader's mind that we do not have to find shortcuts, as sometimes the longest distance between two points are shortcuts. Feb 25, Tremayne Moore rated it it was amazing.
This was outstanding. Very practical and the only reason why people may not like it is simply the decision to not implement what he is talking about. Trust me, integrity, character and ethics is everything. Mar 11, Greg Syers rated it it was amazing. This is a fantastic book that everyone should read.
The basis behind ethics is that everyone should live to treat others as they would like to be treated. Feb 03, Kapembwa Charles rated it it was amazing. Apr 10, Serge Gautron rated it really liked it. Very nice quick read. The author makes some very good points and more importantly great suggestions for living an ethical and successful life by the Golden Rule. This was a good read. It focused on the Golden Rule and how in order to be ethical in business and in life you should focus upon this.
How there is no such thing as business ethics and if you're not ethical in your own life then how can you be ethical in business and visa versa. It also has examples of business men who were ethical in their business and those who were not. It gives you things to think about. John Maxwell is nothing if not prolific. The pastor turned personal development guru sells a lot of books. I know some people that read everything the man puts out.
Me, I've read five of his books including this one I think. Personally, I've always found his work derivative. He basically takes what others have written and said and packages it around a theme. I am not saying his books aren't helpful or interesting in their own way. This book on ethics had some interesting stories and I only picked it up from my local library because I am rewriting a business ethics course for the company I work for, and I thought I might find something helpful here.
I didn't. In fact, I was a little perturbed that he reduced the "Golden Rule" down to a pithy little guideline for ethics. It is so much more than that.
The words of Christ on this matter are incredibly simple, yes, but they are also richly profound.
While I don't believe it was Maxwell's intent to make this ultimate ethical statement from Jesus a catchy little way to sell some books, it ultimately comes across that way. I recommend skipping this one. No offense meant to Mr. Maxwell, or his many fans. It was a very short, quick read. Nothing in here was groundbreaking new material, but after a pretty slow start, I enjoyed it. There are a lot of good quotes in here some from Maxwell, many good ones from other people.
In contrast, people who continually attempt to test the edge of ethics inevitably go over that edge. Meh, no major revelation here, could have been so much better. Maxwell identifies only one underlying principle for correct human behavior towards others and that is essentially the Golden Rule.
I feel like he could have gone much deeper than he did but I don't think he understands the deeper psychology of it. However most humans are born with this capacity, though how far it develops largely depends on a variety of environme Meh, no major revelation here, could have been so much better.
However most humans are born with this capacity, though how far it develops largely depends on a variety of environmental and genetic factors as well as the individual themselves and how much they cultivate it. He points out how all major religions and cultures all share some variant of the Golden rule again not a big surprise here since Empathy is founded in physiology. But he fails to identify that the underlying conclusion of deep Empathy is feeling connected to everything.
If people could feel, more than just rationally grasp, the universal connection of everything, then they would understand why the Golden Rule makes perfect and logical sense.
Jan 19, Shavawn Berry rated it really liked it. This is a short primer on Ethics that I am currently using for my business writing course. Maxwell's emphasis is on the use of 'The Golden Rule' as a means to live and work with integrity.
You must ask yourself, "How would I want to be treated? If you wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of your behavior, perhaps you need to rethink and modify that behavior. Many of the crises in business in recent years had to do with an appalling lack of empathy -- fo This is a short primer on Ethics that I am currently using for my business writing course. Many of the crises in business in recent years had to do with an appalling lack of empathy -- for shareholders, employees, customers -- and an adherence to something called 'situational ethics.
Maxwell's premise that a life lived in adherence with The Golden Rule will be 'a good life' goes without saying.
The book is full of excellent examples and reminders to make the right and moral choice. A quick and helpful read. Mar 16, Ajeya rated it liked it. The book discusses some quotes and some history of successful people. It talks about the "golden rule of any faith" which is roughly 'treat another person in the way you would like yourself to be treated' with citations Some nice quotes: Goethe "things that matter most must never be at the mercy of things that matter least" It The book discusses some quotes and some history of successful people.
Goethe "things that matter most must never be at the mercy of things that matter least" It urges one to be prepared to seize your golden opportunity And also states that people who know their weaknesses are rarely taken by surprise.
Quick read - good thing to think about in terms of the decisions you make as your 'work self' and your 'home self'. In reality, these should have the same response.
The point was a bit overdone, but it had lots of real-life examples to present as examples. Some of the stories and reference are becoming dated, and will become inconsequential because they are replaced by newer scandals.

The summary of action points were drawn out, nothing catchy to keep in mind, but I did pull out some useful points - the 5 "P's" - that can lead to unethical actions: Pressure, Pleasure, Power, Pride, and Priorities.
