Nice Companies Finish First Summary


Nice Companies Finish First: Why Cutthroat Management is Over--and Collaboration is in by Peter Shankman

The era of authoritarian cowboy CEOs like Jack Welch and Lee Iacocca is over. In an age of increasing transparency and access, it just doesn't pay to be a jerk - to employees, customers, competitors, or anyone else. In Nice Companies Finish First, Shankman, a pioneer in modern PR, marketing, advertising, social media, and customer service, profiles the famously nice executives, entrepreneurs, and companies that are setting the standard for success in this new collaborative world. He explores the new hallmarks of effective leadership, including loyalty, optimism, humility, and a reverence for customer service, and shows how leaders like Jet Blue's Dave Needleman, Tony Hseih of Zappos, Steve Jobs of Apple, Ken Chenault of Amex, Indra Nooyi of Pepsi, and the team behind Patagonia harness these traits to build productive, open, and happy workplaces forthebenefit of their employees,themselves, and the bottom line.

Nice Companies Finish First Reviews


"This book's subtitle- "Why cutthroat management is over- and collaboration is in"- says it all... This means you can no longer treat your boss one way and the people who report to you another...It seems as though politeness is back on an upward trajectory." - Third Sector magazine, 3rd June 2013 "Shankman's book points out both the 'how to' and the 'why' of becoming a nice guy and a nice company. It is a compelling argument and one that every CEO should consider. Read it and apply the lessons to ensure your company too can exploit the positive traits of nice companies and the long-term rewards that can create." -Brain Cram, May 29th 2013
