    Your success in your professional, financial, and personal lives depends to a great extent on your ability to articulate. Throughout recorded history, many thinkers have noted the importance of being articulate and the power of words; you'll find a few of their comments in the book. Pete, however, goes a giant step further by connecting articulation to wealth and happiness and to the clear thinking and better decisions that thwart mediocrity.

Pete, however, goes a giant step further by connecting articulation to wealth and happiness and to the clear thinking and better decisions that thwart mediocrity. He quite correctly points out that we think in words, and we need more words to think with as the issues we need to resolve become more complex, as they do when we rise in any organization and our close relationships mature.

    This chapter-level audiobook can change the way you listen to BigShots - mostly businesspersons with a snapshot or two of politicians - as they pontificate for public consumption and personal gain. You'll recognize the spin, that dastardly polite euphemism for lies that the advertising/PR folks coined years ago to anoint their profession with a bit of undeserved dignity. In the process, you might gain a more realistic grasp of what's going on around you and how your mind is being manipulated, aka brainwashed.

In addition, the profiled managers are totally convinced that dignity is the root cause of their firms' profitability and sustainability. I think you'll enjoy meeting them and profit from their insights.

    This book examines first the very significant differences between managing for dignity and for stockholder value, then a number of successful businesses that are managed profitably and sustainably to protect and enhance the dignity of employees, customers, and other stakeholders, albeit in different ways and styles. The managers of those firms invariably ignore short-term accounting figures; they know that their businesses are much more than numbers and behave accordingly.
