Conduct Expected : For the

Conduct Expected : For the 21st Century

During my college years, a professor I respect tremendously recommended this book by William Lareau - Conduct Expected.
I can't seem to find it now, otherwise I would quote from it...
basically he outlines the "hard rules" of business in the real world.
It's times like these, when over 12 months time your company reduces
force 4 times, that you realize many of these rules are true.
If I remeber right, one rule was - "In the big picture, you really
don't matter" -- talk about reality check... we are driven by
leadership to make a difference, work late, go the extra mile, make a
difference for customers, then we forget about this rule.
It looks like Mr. Lareau updated his rules for the 21st Century... I
think I'll check it out. I'll post the original rules on this blog
