The Care Quotient is a leadership book that presents caring as the single most important character trait needed to drive business success and employee fellowship.

The Care Quotient is a prescription for business and personal success based on caring about the right things. Selfless caring is based on a moral belief system that demands that principles and truth are your highest goals and that taking personal responsibility is your defining quality. Selfless caring drives you to leave people and circumstances better than you found them. It is a virtually limitless source of energy that fuels tireless preparation and incessant trial and error and personal reinvention.

If you selflessly care, you will:

Realize that management is a gift and a profound responsibility

Reinvent yourself and your approach as often as it takes to be successful

Take the time to teach and mentor and to be taught and mentored

Make difficult decisions

Set a great example, all the time

Take chances on people and cultivate talent.

From these critical behaviors come the winning strategies and desired outcomes, time after time. True followship flows from the engagement, alignment, inspiration, and motivation that a selflessly caring leader engenders.
