All too many people view business as a ruthless, dog-eat-dog world where only the pitiless survive. But here Bill Damon tells the compelling stories of real-life business leaders who have achieved great success by adhering to moral conviction. Based on interviews with 48 executives in a variety of industries, The Moral Advantage illustrates how moral insights can be used to gain competitive advantage. By showing how to employ rather than compromise moral standards, The Moral Advantage provides a roadmap for achieving success by sticking to the high road, and for building a business career that is both personally and materially rewarding.
