Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Will money or morality emerge victorious in the war zone of work skirmishes? Julian, with seasoned experience as a leadership management consultant for companies such as 3M, Honeywell, AT&T and General Mills, provides solid answers for this troubling dilemma. He discusses 10 key principles that he deems essential for transforming workplace problems into both spiritual and bottom-line success stories. Each chapter poses an issue (such as developing patience, cultivating leadership by example, yielding control, making tough decisions and maintaining right priorities) followed by a solution. In a chapter on "integration," for example, Julian poses the bottom-line question: "How do I balance employee needs with profit obligations?" To explain his approach (to "integrate people and profits into win-win solutions"), Julian details the experiences of two business executives who have creatively solved this problem, and shares the underlying principles they implemented. Indeed, the personal stories of business leaders form the core of the book, tied together by Julian's practical steps and discussion questions at the close of each chapter. Readers will be especially intrigued by the trials and triumphs of such well-regarded business executives as S. Truett Cathy (Chick-Fil-A), Bob O. Naegele Jr. (Rollerblade), C. William Pollard (The ServiceMaster Company) and Marilyn Carlson Nelson (Carlson Companies). Many leaders, whether newly indoctrinated to the world of business or veteran executives, will find tools for the trade in this excellent guidebook to living out one's faith in a ruthless "bottom-line" world.
