The Executive's Compass
Business and the Good Society
James O'TooleThe most difficult issues facing business leaders today are not technical in nature, but are often rooted in differences in social, political, and economic values--questions about which there is no objective truth. In The Executive's Compass, James O'Toole explores the historical and philosophical roots of current values-based conflicts revolving around such issues as the environment, workforce diversity, foreign production, and executive pay. He ranges far and wide in covering a variety of topics: the ideological positions of the friends and foes of business; what is wrong (and right) with our democratic system; and what the role of business is in creating The Good Society. And he presents a practical framework for thinking about these questions: his innovative Executive's Compass--honed at The Aspen Institute's famed Executive Seminar and applied successfully at many FORTUNE 500 firms.
For top executives, general managers, and anyone trying to practice values-based leadership, The Executive's Compass offers a practical tool to deal more effectively with the thorny new issues that technical training leaves professionsl ill-prepared to handle.
James O'Toole is Executive Director of the Leadership Institute. He holds the University Associates' Chair of Management at the USC Graduate School of Business. He has recently been Editor of New Management magazine and is author of ten books, including Vanguard Management, named by Business Week as one of the best business and economics books of 1985.
