Excerpts: Herb's Hints - Part I

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 1:25 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

The Transparent Leader The Transparent Leader: How to Build a Great Company Through Straight Talk, Openness, and Accountability by Herb Baum with Tammy Kling HarperBusiness - October 2004 235 Pages - ISBN 0060565470 I recommend this book to anyone and you can read the review written by John Moore here. I pulled this excerpt from the Appendix of the book. I know that may sound a little odd, but I thought this was really good. In this section titled "Herb's Hints: A Road to a Better Business Life", Baum gives his advice for how to have a successful career in business.
