responsible-managementDoes a manager in today’s world need to know anything about ethics? Or human behavior? Or even self-respect? Absolutely, says author Kemi Ogunyemi. Ogunyemi wrote this book to serve as a valuable tool that could complement courses on ethics, responsibility, leadership, customer service, and sustainability – most of which tend to neglect their human nature dimensions.

Inside, you’ll be provided a real understanding of human nature and its uniqueness and complexity, which can help you in today’s business world to better manage and to respect self, others and the environment. It also provides the foundation for learning ethical behavior, leadership, responsibility, sustainable management and corporate social responsibility. Without this angle, you and other manager may tend to focus primarily on financial success in different dimensions – operational quality, financial strategy, workforce motivation, cost-cutting strategies, etc. Future leaders and shapers of sustainable organizations and societies cannot afford to have such a knowledge gap.
