Do The Good Guys Win?

There’s something inside us that wants to believe that the good guys win in the end, right? We want to believe that if you treat people well, keep your promises, and work hard, that it all pays off with increased opportunity and reward.

Fred Kiel has data to support that you don't have to be Gordon Gecko from the movie Wall Street to win. In this episode, we talk with Fred about his new book Return on Character: The Real Reason Leaders and Their Companies Win
