A look at the 30 virtues of good business that have inspired success in thousands of leaders, by the man voted Boss of the Year, 1994.

Persistent, honest, resourceful, creative -- these adjectives begin to define the qualities of a great business leader. Along with the 26 other virtues enumerated in Wisdom, Inc., they are the fundamentals behind a business strategy that works, but they often get lost beneath passing fads and the color of one's parachute. Seth Godin's simple, highly readable handbook of business virtues will help everyone from assistant managers to CEOs cultivate habits that lead to a lifetime of good business.

Godin interviewed 1,500 top executives from a wide range of industries to isolate the 30 virtues consistently named by respondents. Each virtue is addressed with inspirational stories of historical business leaders who distinguished themselves by exhibiting that virtue, as well as modern-day accounts by the executives interviewed demonstrating how the virtue has contributed to their companies' successes. Most important, each virtue is accompanied by a section entitled "To Do Today," which provides concrete suggestions for immediately incorporating the virtue into a daily routine. Both practical and inspirational, Wisdom, Inc. is a perfect gift or anyone in business.

Comments:

Very Old Chap
Is the entire book great? It is not a novel, it is a collection of surveys. So look for what applies to you. If you find a gem, isn't that worth 5 stars? It is to me. I know how to apply it.
CURIOSITY
I especially liked the section on Curiosity. An outside marketing company couldn't find out from any division within Olympic paint why their additive made their paint better. They got responses like "the additive exceeds some sort of Federal standards." So the marketing company dug deeper, OUTSIDE the company and found that the ingredient made the paint stick better to old paint! No one in R and D could tell them this! Funny all the bureaucracy, confusion, "that's not my job" etc and this important information got lost.
FEARLESSNESS
CEO of IBM Louis Gerstner. "There are no recipes..There are no certainties...You've got to go on instinct." I wish I had some kind of training in college about this. I believed I could somehow at least get a good idea first on what to be fearless about. But he is right, there are no recipes- but THINKING is seemingly presented as a recipe for success in college.
Is every part of the book going to appeal to you? No. It is more like those
"100 Reasons Why"...type books. Just take the good ideas and ignore the ones you don't like.
Ueledavi
There are several things I couldn't figure out about this book. Perhaps you can.
First, the subtitle didn't seem to have anything to do with the research done to prepare for the book or with the book's contents. To explain, the author did a survey (7000 direct mail pieces to middle and top executives and a one-page ad in Strategy and Leadership magazine which has a readership of 15,000) to which 700 mostly top management people responded. They were asked to select from among 53 qualities the ones that are "most important to you in employees and co-workers." I don't see what that has to do with being a leader. I rated the book down one star for this misleading use of a subtitle. The only guess I can make is that the author thought that anyone who is a co-worker of a middle or top management person is a leader. Clear or unclear to you?
Second, if the authors really wanted to know which ones were most important to leadership, shouldn't they have asked those who are being led? Wrong survey group. I knocked the book down one more star for this.
From these two points, you can probably understand why I chose the title I did for this review, for that is what the research has produced. In that genre, I have to compare this book to How to Be a Star at Work, and I have to say that this book is not even close to being in the same league. Buy that book instead.
Now, for the book itself, how much can you tell someone about 23 personal qualities in 160 pages? As you can see, that is 4 or 5 small pages for each one. And the author includes quotes, anecdotes, examples, statistics, and survey findings, as well as instructions for using the virtue. I felt like I was on one of those 23 cities in 17 days trips to Europe.
Now, the material is good. It will come as no surprise to people who know about history and business. So I have to assume that this might be intended as something to give to young or inexperienced people. That might be all right if you want them to grasp hard for security (being well-liked by the boss is good for that), but that seems like a bad idea in the day of the entrepreneur in the New Economy. I suggest you give them Nuts! (about Herb Kelleher and Southwest Airlines) instead.
The final thing that puzzled me was why creativity rated so low in the survey (only 16 percent favored that as a quality in employees and co-workers). Hmmmm!
Something may be puzzling you. Why didn't I rate the book down more? The reason is that I liked many of the exercises, plus the challenge that Mr. Godin provided to the reader to follow these virtues and attitudes for 30 days to see what happens. I suspect that you'd benefit if you did, so I gave the book 3 stars for the exercises and the challenge. You can draw your own conclusions from there as to how many stars you would select.
If you are interested in a leadership book, you might start with Leading Change by John Kotter.
Use this review to help you test to see if you have the misconception stall that authors always deliver on what their titles and subtitles suggest.

In my spare time, & in between stacks of serious books, I generally like to read a few books which can be read in short bursts. This is one of those books, which I have acquired at a used bookstore, after having actually read, quite some time back, Donald Mitchell's not-so-good review on it. I was curious as I have read that the author was some sort of a maverick.

Although I do share many of Donald's 'adverse comments' about this book, I did find some very intriguing anecdotes & interesting nuggets pertaining to:

- attention to detail;

- creativity;

- curiosity;

- focus;

- goals;

- inititiative;

- resourcefulness;

- self-motivation;

- strategy;

- vision;

The exercises under 'Toward Virtuosity' in these areas were great & fun, too.

I reckon this book is still a worthwhile read for professionals.
