The Soul Advantage: The New Kind of Leadership,
Competition in business is fierce and being known as a great place to work is more often than not also a company that expects and gives nothing but excellence! As we enter the 21st century we find ourselves asking some serious questions about the weight competition has played in developing our organizations, employees and personal lives. The race to attract and keep talented people, develop superior products and services, to be a great company to work for, to make profits, and to be about something beyond the bottom line are the same regardless of industry.
Today, the corporate advantage is the soul or spirit of a company. A company that is known for its inspiring leadership, its ability to nurture artistry and excellence, its commitment to employees and customers and its ability to define its higher purpose will determine its success in this millennium.
