Good Business. Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

Good Business. Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi. 2003. ISBN 0670031968. Mihaly
wrote Flow which I really likes. This research looked at thirty nine
business leaders who had a mal and ethical view to their business. Such
folks as Chouinaard (Patagonia) , Jane Fonda, Mike Markkula (Apple),
Roddick (body Shop) . Shapiro (Monsanto) .Sir John Templeton, Ted Turner
and so on. They all contributed guides and visions as to how they
promote flow in their lives and their businesses for their employees. I
liked Flow, but I admire this book. In the wake of Ebbers, Lay and Cos
like Revco and so on it is more than refreshing to read about leaders
who are looking at the greater good. Lots of words to live and lead by
here. A moderate read, not lite and it does not race.
