A new book from three academic business professors, behavioral physicians, and ethicists explores how the classical virtues can help you develop a more robust work culture.
Virtue is essential for anyone that wants to change the world. It is only possible to meaningfully change the world by building yourself up to the point that you can support others, and build a high-performance culture in their company or business.
In their newest collaboration, authors Peter Rea, James Stoller, and Alan Kolphighlight the importance of the seven classical virtues in their newest book Better Humans, Better Performance: Driving Leadership, Teamwork, and Culture with Intentionality.
They previously authored the 2017 book Exception to the Rule The Surprising Science of Character-Based Culture, Engagement, and Performance.
The seven classical values are trust, compassion, courage, justice, temperance, wisdom, and hope. The authors of Better Humans, Better Performance claim that striving for excellence through these values can help readers attain science-based results and build a stronger culture of more robust employees.
“Virtue is more than a word: It’s a way for us all to live, a way to flourish as human beings. And when applied to organizational life, virtue serves to enhance engagement, strengthen teamwork, and foster success in business. Better Humans, Better Performance is a practical guide to achieving individual, team, and organizational,” says the publisher.
Following these virtues can help cultivate leadership, improve performance, improve the integrity and resilience of your organization, and help your organization make deliberate, science-based decisions with the best outcomes for employees and employers.
