Most CEOs say the same thing: finding good people is difficult, and a matter of luck rather than skill, as being good on paper doesn't always translate to being good in practice. In Good People, venture capitalist Anthony Tjan explains the five tensions that make "goodness" so uncommon in business, and features numerous profiles of "good people" who are extraordinary leaders and motivators in their fields, including Dominic Barton, Managing Director of McKinsey & Co and Gary Knell, CEO of National Geographic. Establishing a new vocabulary for understanding and talking about the meaning of "good," both in business and beyond, Tjan offers practical advice for advancing the only durable competitive advantage for organizations: a set of values for developing oneself and others.

It began with a letter Scott wrote to the CEO of his company. Amidst the economic turmoil brought on by the 2008 financial crisis, senior management solicited feedback from employees on ways to improve the operations of the firm going forward. The message resonated with Scott. He sensed a different way of doing things-that by examining company values and focusing on teamwork, the firm could achieve economic profit and create a workforce of engaged, fulfilled team members. Completing this exercise had profound meaning for him. Scott began to see the power of identifying core values, establishing team culture, and developing an action plan for success. The letter turned into a blueprint for creating a new career and a life of purpose. In an enlightening account of Scott's journey of introspection and inspiration, he provides a how-to guide for transforming any area of life and delivers one profound message: living a life of fulfillment is predicated on honoring your passion and purpose and contributing meaningfully to others around you. In this moment of economic rebirth and global self-examination, there has never been a better time to follow your heart and claim ownership for your true identity. We-the world and individuals-cannot afford to ignore those internal impulses that are telling each of us to believe in ourselves and honor what we are most passionate about creating and contributing in our lives. The stakes-political, economic, social, and spiritual-are just too high not to. Join Scott as he teaches you: How to find your passion and turn it into a life of meaning What the difference is between a career and a calling What your "Trajectory of Purpose" is and how defining it now will improve your life forever How to start your own company from scratch and establish values of lasting success What qualities the most successful leaders have that others don't How to create a "Mindset of Opportunity" and see the world as a team effort How to live a life of self-leadership that allows you to call the shots and be the architect of your own life The time-as always-is now!

Here is the Holy Grail of success philosophy: Napoleon Hill's complete and original formula to achievement presented in fifteen remarkable principles--now newly designed in a handsome single-volume edition. This is the master volume of the extraordinary work that began the career of Napoleon Hill. Originally produced by Hill in 1928 as an eight-book series, The Law of Success is now available to contemporary readers in a single edition, redesigned and reset for ease of reading. The Law of Success is the golden key to Hill's thought--his complete and unabridged mind-power method for achieving your goals. After interviewing dozens of industrialists, diplomats, thought leaders, and successful people from all walks of life, the young Hill distilled what he learned into these fifteen core lessons, organized with an introductory chapter, 'The Master Mind,' that serves as a primer to Hill's overall philosophy. As Hill saw it, these lessons work as a "mind stimulant" that "will cause the student to organize and direct to a DEFINITE end the forces of his or her mind, thus harnessing the stupendous power which most people waste." While future classics of Napoleon Hill would inspire millions of readers, there is no substitute for The Law of Success for everyone who wants to grasp the full range of Hill's ideas and tap their transformative power.
