Not since Sun Tsu's The Art of War
The Way of the Warrior for Professionals in the Digital Century
The digital age of transparency has imposed changes on businesses that make the Samurai teachings of self-discipline a valuable resource.
Companies relying on power, control or low ethical standards, are losing ground.
More than ever, success comes from a purpose beyond earning money.
Success must be based on
integrity, but how can we cherish integrity while facing
fierce competition and company/office politics?
People often relate business and war to each other, citing the ancient book of Sun Tzu: The Art of War. Unfortunately the concept of war is often emphasized, rather than the art.
There is a good reason why Sun Tzu did not choose “The Thrill of War” as his title or just “How to Destroy Your Enemies.” The Art of War relates to the wisdom of ancient Samurai warriors.
The path of the Samurai is a quest for self-development that extends beyond fighting.
The Samurai became successful in
battle through true skill and the ability to withstand the desire
for power and victory.
This book, Samurai Business, inspires professionals to face politics without feeding them.
The book helps to focus on self-development to the benefit of your environment, while being rewarded for your efforts.
Apply the Samurai principles consistently and you may surprise yourself.
It is time to put the art back in the business and the self-discipline of the Samurai back in the professional.
