This is a book about work choices and life choices, and the critical points, or defining moments, at which the two become one. A refreshing antidote to traditional feel-good, inspirational business ethics, it examines the right-versus-right conflicts that every business manager faces and presents an unorthodox yet practical way for you to think about and resolve them.
"An interesting look at ethical business issues"
The question of how to lead successfully and responsibly is crucially important in our uncertain, high-pressure, turbulent world. In this audiobook, Harvard Business School Professor Joseph Badaracco answers this question in practical and, at times, provocative ways. Leaders today are surrounded by what Badaracco calls “the new invisible hand” - powerful, pervasive markets that touch and shape almost everything. As a result, understanding the inevitability and importance of struggle is critical.
Every manager makes tough calls - it comes with the job. And the toughest calls come in the gray areas - situations where you and your team have worked hard to gather the facts and done the best analysis you can, but you still don't know what to do. It’s easy to become paralyzed in the face of such challenges. Yet as a leader, you have to make a decision and move forward. Your judgment becomes critical.
