A Victor's Reflections and Other Tales of China's Timeless Wisdom for Leaders
Long treasured by those who seek personal and spiritual enlightenment, the truths and wisdom contained within classic Chinese tales also have much to offer those who seek excellence in today's business world. Born in Shanghai, Michael Tang spent his youth poring over Chinese classics, from the Intrigues of the Warring States to the Tales of the Song Dynasty, from the Chronicles of Three Kingdoms to the History of the Ming Empire. Working in corporate America, he discovered the practical value of these revered ancient tales.
In this collection, Tang brings together over one hundred Chinese fables, each featuring a thought-provoking and inspiring message directly relevant to achieving business success today. These brief, engaging tales offer practical lessons on leadership, management, competitive strategy, organizational behavior, human relations, ethics, family values, emotional intelligence, career management -- even love and sex. A treasure trove of embedded wisdom, the volume will also delight readers with its elegant package. The author's father, Qingan Tang, has added beautiful calligraphy to enhance the fables' wisdom.
