How Values-Based Leadership will Help Business Flourish in Trump's America
Part business manifesto and part memoir, The Dividends of Decency shows by example how companies can achieve success when following established codes of ethics rather than deceit and dishonesty. Sheppard’s book provides a unique business profile of two decidedly different individuals with distinctly contrasting values. Sharing anecdotes and personal experience, Sheppard demonstrates that principles and profits are not mutually exclusive, and that the former can significantly improve the latter as well as enhance business and community relationships.
