9780688089214: Love and Profit: The Art of Caring Leadership

In business, it is no longer necessary to sacrifice integrity and peace of mind in favor of profits. Successful Fortune 500 executive James A. Autry effectively explodes the myth that "nice guys finish last" in what is perhaps the most practical, honest and humane management book ever written -- an indispensable handbook that explores every aspect of the fine art of creative and caring leadership.A unique primer for business in the '90s, Love and Profit offers clear, direct and compassionate guidance, dealing situation by situation with the most difficult decisions every manager must inevitably face -- from motivating high achievers to letting nonproductive employees go. A rare and innovative work, it will enable you to manage brilliantly and profitably during the day ... and sleep well at night.

From Publishers Weekly:

As Autry ( Life After Mississippi ) sees it, love, trust and spirituality should be management's watchwords in the 1990s, in contrast to the often manipulative, restrictive policies of the '80s. And the author should know--he's president of the Fortune 500 Meredith magazine group in Des Moines, Iowa. In short essays and poetry refreshingly free of business jargon, Autry pens an unusual management primer designed to integrate work and life while offering, on management's part, specific provisions such as flexible hours, child care facilities, disabled employee and award programs, and a degree of shared ownership. And while conceding that personal and management problems may ensue from his egalitarian ideals, Autry contends that good results can compensate: increased productivity and higher profits and investment returns. First serial to Fortune; Fortune and Newbridge book clubs alternates; author tour.

From Library Journal:

"Management is, in fact, a sacred trust in which the well-being of other people is put in your care during most of their waking hours." Autry, the president of Meredith Corporation's magazine group, believes this, and as a result looks at management in a slightly different way from many management theorists. In a series of brief chapters, he examines how a caring manager might handle a wide variety of situations most managers face. Following many of these chapters are poems that in a truly remarkable way tell vignettes to help explain what the chapter was about. This is highly recommended for business how-to collections.
