Book on Humanist ethics in business becomes best-seller
A new book by author Jennifer Hancock became a bestselling book on Amazon for Business Ethics, reaching the top 100 list.
The book titled, Applied Humanism: How to create more effective and ethical businesses was published by Business Expert Press and was edited by David M. Wasieleski, Professor of Management & Business Ethics in the Palumbo Donahue School of Business at Duquesne University.
This book provides a short introduction to the philosophy of Humanism and discusses how and why it is being applied to business and why it is so effective when you do so. It is already in use at several business schools where professors are using it to help teach ethics, critical thinking, strategy and organizational psychology.
"You can't understand humanistic business management unless you understand what Humanism is. Humanism helps us prioritize human value as important. It supports positive interpersonal relationships and collaborative and respectful decision-making. Since all businesses are in the business of solving problems, good problem solving is essential to good business." – Jennifer Hancock
