Item Description...
In today's cutthroat business environment, leaders are expected to do more with less. Bottom lines are on the increase; available resources on the decrease. Worse, managers must achieve these grand goals while keeping morale at an alltime high.

This isn't just a trend. It's the state of business today. And really, it's nothing new. In ancient Egypt, the Israelite slaves were forced to make more bricks with less straw. With fewer and fewer resources, the Israelites had to find ways to meet higher and higher demands.

David Farrington transports this and other familiar Bible stories into the modern workplace, demonstrating timetested solutions---delegation of authority, effective communication, consensus building, and more---for today's timepressed business leaders. As a veteran of consulting for Fortune 500 companies, Farrington knows how to produce more effective business leaders. His penetrating insights give leaders innovative strategies for building morale and creating a positive work environment---making the most of workers' efforts in a way that is beneficial to you, your team, and your entire organization.

Each chapter discusses the importance of each principal by answering

  • What's in it for the leader?
  • What's in it for the team?
  • What's in it for the organization?

      Celebrating Passover with Your Jewish Neighbors  Feb 2, 2006
      I Highly recommend this book as an ideal gift to give your Jewish friends in celebration of Passover. Any one familiar with the book of Exodus... or even someone that has scene the animated feature Prince of Egypt will understood the context for the title of this book. After Moses went to Pharoah to demand that his people be set free from their enslavement by the Egyptians and relentless labor in building the Pharoah's empire, they were punished by him by being expected to produce the same amount of bricks for buildings / structures daily as before but this time without being provided any straw. They now were expected to do as much as before, which is presumably already inhuman from the start, and now do that and gather their own straw for it as well.

      The title, subtitle and backcover of this book suggest that people in business management can learn from this scenario things about how to manage people to get more out of them with less... but isn't that sick? "Let's take pointer's from the whip yielding slave-abusing Egyptians in the name of the Bottom line and building our little Empires. What a novel idea." This is offensive and disgusting.

      Maybe if I actually read this book I would be able to discover something that would help me to get beyond the apparent absurdity of the sick joke that serves as the main concept for this book. But I'm neither interested in being a slave or in treating others like slaves, so why would I?

      I don't believe that the author of this book means harm, but do wonder if corporate culture has somehow blinded him to the grotesque nature of this example of human productivity being placed in a positive light. Indeed in the name of giving him the benefit of the doubt, I absolutely must make such an assumption.

      Celebrate Passover... not Principles of Slave-Management.
