A sharp examination of the "sins" committed by managers and executives and what must be done in order for managers and their companies to succeed in the future Pride, envy, gluttony, lust, wrath, covetousness, sloth -these are the Seven Deadly Sins. Much of business today is based on these sins. Managers are encouraged to be proud of their results (pride), to attack the competition (wrath), to hoard knowledge (covetousness), and to create shareholder value, no matter the consequences (lust). But at what cost? Just as the Seven Deadly Sins conspire to destroy our soul in daily life, so they conspire to destroy our business. In this original and reflective book -laced with dark humour - Jonathan Ellis and Rene Tissen provide warnings about current management practice and thinking based upon the Seven Deadly Sins. Each chapter examines a Sin, and begins with a "Sin-O-Meter" to discover your rating for that particular Sin. The book also includes case studies of managers who have sinned and the consequences for their companies. Finally, the authors provide ideas and guidance for becoming a "good" and successful manager, moving away from past sins.
