Dignified Leadership is an important read for every manager but a crucial one for executives. The book neatly lays out far-reaching but infrequently discussed organizational issues: what does it mean to be human, and how do you tap into the best of human nature to create a vibrant workplace? Drs Witkop and de Quincey adeptly show how their performance solutions match the philosophical "right thing to do." A leadership team can use this book to generate discussions and joint agreement about how to boost creativity and maximize results. Pass this book on to everyone in your executive suite!

Speaking to the brain and the heart: This book offers a leadership philosophy we all can understand and share. People count! And if they are treated as such, their innermost senses will drive them to happiness and then success. We all know we do better at everything if we are happy! If only we had more leaders like this, the world would be a happier place. Thank you Greg Witkop and Christian de Quincey for reminding us that happiness is the forerunner of success, not the reverse. It's a no-brainer or should be. These authors lead the way for 21st century leadership! As a manager for 30 years, I could have used this book long ago. Read it, you will find success and so will your organization and everyone in it.
