CEO of his father's furniture company for 29 years, Max Depree believes in inclusive management, and this idea colors every insight and principle in this thoughtful primer. He says leading artfully means respecting everyone, creating a trusting work culture, and promoting participation in company decision making. Joseph Campanella's extensive acting background makes him a good choice to read this touching material. With his dramatic sensibilities in high gear, he's fully engaged with the idea that good leaders are more about character and community than strategy or productivity. This artful lesson is a refreshing change from management approaches that turn people into commodities or focus only on quantitative outcomes. A welcome reminder for those who want to bring humanity back into their organizations. T.W. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2009]
