Winning Without Losing Your Way
Character Centered Leadership
By Rebecca Barnett 

     Great leaders are the foundation from which corporations are built each day. Knowing how to gain the respect of your employees while maintaining loyalty to your business is a tightrope managers must walk each day. With one wrong step, all of their hard work and years of dedication can slip out from under them. The result would leave them trying to piece together the shattered remains.

     In Winning Without Losing Your Way; Character Centered Leadership, Rebecca Barnett uses the principals of judo-respect, courage, benevolence, loyalty, truth and integrity--to promote a harmonious balance that should serve as a role model for every manager. She shows readers how to succeed without compromising their ethical beliefs and values. Her use of her own personal stories allows the readers to see her methods are an effective means that have been proven to produce tremendous results.

     I feel a connection with Rebecca Barnett's writing. Having majored in Management and Supervision, I know first hand what dilemma managers are faced with each day. One of the primary reasons I selected to get a degree in this major is because I watched many great leaders "sell out" their beliefs and adopt what the company deemed as "appropriate management techniques." By continuing to seek out and gain knowledge from such expert authors as Rebecca Barnett, I hope I will one day be the type of leader who will receive respect from both my employees and management. I know the road to being a well-thought-of leader is paved with a lot of obstacles. Hopefully, by being open minded to new techniques, I will gain the experience to be a good leader.
