Description - Leadership by Thomas F Franklin
LEADERSHIP: Where Business Ethics Begin. This book has been written for individuals who find themselves in a position to step back and look at where they are as business participants, including those who are directly or indirectly involved in business. People whose participation is indirect are individuals who have a family member or friend involved/consumed with their position. This book can help in understanding what those business participants might be experiencing on physical, mental, emotional, and psychological levels. Chapter One: "This book is about awareness* and the role it plays in significantly increasing our quality of life and our ability to create value for ourselves and others." Chapter Two: "Focusing on what is happening around you and then detaching from the result was one of the main ideas presented in chapter 1." Chapter Three: "Out of expanding awareness comes what I have dubbed 180-degree vision*." Chapter Four: "The ability to manage the Four Ss by integrating a company's STRATEGY with evolving knowledge and information within the SCIENCE, SERVICE, and SPIRITUAL arenas requires an expanded awareness of personal service." Chapter Five: "As stated in prior chapters, our vision or understanding of our role as a leader is impacted almost completely by our awareness and understanding of life and the human condition." Chapter Six: "Leaders that begin to see with 180-degree vision as a result of increasing awareness will realize a powerful change in experience and success. They will intuitively focus on longer term issues..." Chapter Seven: "I first heard of the idea of 'frame of reference' when I attended a program presented by Stephen R. Covey, author of the book Seven Activities of Highly Successful People." Chapter Eight: "[This chapter] is an interview the author's daughter requested of him as partial fulfillment of her World Religion class at the community college she was attending." Book Description Building and Surviving a Successful Career: How we go about building on our careers has much to do with our frame of reference and awareness of the root cause of how we have become participants within business and the value it creates. Whether it is from a job or mercenary perspective (due to our need to make a living and provide for those around us) or as that of advocates who approach their positions with the intensity of avocations, much of what happens has to do about our ideas or perceptions of what our roles should or can be over the lifetime of our career. Therefore, what we end up with as a result of this business activity is up to us. For leaders and participants, the reality is that we attract and maintain others of like ideas and perspectives around us. It is in this attracting process that our quality of life can be impacted significantly along very positive avenues when we understand the roles we play.
