Overview

Create Value AND Improve Performance in your Organization

"Peter Cohan achieves the rare feat of showing how companies can link values, leadership, and human relationships to competitive success and financial performance."
—George S. Yip, professor and associate dean, London Business School, and author, Total Global Strategy

"We all have a problem with investments. We don’t trust what we see and hear. Without trust, values are destroyed. Peter Cohan’s Value Leadership is a clear and accessible guide for each individual to make intelligent choices and to restore value. You will want to read this book more than once."
—Robert A. G. Monks, founder, Institutional Shareholder Services and LENS

"Corporate America and the investing public would have been far healthier if the wisdom of Value Leadership had been integrated into the cultures of those once great firms recently savaged by self-serving rogue executives. The lessons are powerful and yet readable. They come off as rich dramas rather than ethical scolding."
—Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, professor and associate dean, Yale School of Management
