This landmark book from an expert in dignity studies explores the essential but under-recognized role of dignity as part of good leadership. Extending the reach of her award-winning book Dignity: Its Essential Role in Resolving Conflict, Donna Hicks now contributes a specific, practical guide to achieving a culture of dignity.

Most people know very little about dignity, the author has found, and when leaders fail to respect the dignity of others, conflict and distrust ensue. She highlights three components of leading with dignity: what one must know in order to honor dignity and avoid violating it; what one must do to lead with dignity; and how one can create a culture of dignity in any organization, whether corporate, religious, governmental, healthcare, or beyond. Brimming with key research findings, real-life case studies, and workable recommendations, this book fills an important gap in our understanding of how best to be together in a conflict-ridden world.

Reviews:

“Leading with Dignity conveys a simple, but powerful message: people want to be treated well, and when they are, it brings out the best in them.”—Jon Gordon, author of The Energy Bus and The Power of Positive Leadership

“This 'how-to' sparks the scaling of dignity within and across us to strengthen human and social capacity. A gift to give and get.”—Dana Born, Co-Director of the Center for Public Leadership, Harvard University

“Nothing short of a landmark publication that will change and influence the public conversation on how we organize and manage."—Michael Pirson, Fordham University

“Donna Hicks articulates for business leaders not only a grand concept but also a practical framework for strengthening corporate culture by recognizing and promoting the inherent value in each employee.”—Kenneth C. Frazier, Chairman and CEO, Merck & Co., Inc.

“There has never been a more important time for dignity to be recognized as the key to outstanding institutional, organizational, and community leadership. This book offers a practical and empowering roadmap showing leaders how to build, strengthen, and energize their organizations by cultivating the dignity of all people.”—Linda M. Hartling, Ph.D., Human Dignity and Humiliation Studies

“Leading with Dignity is an appeal to better ourselves and our organizations at a time when it couldn’t be needed more.”—Tim O’Brien, Lecturer, Harvard Kennedy School

“Corporate codes of ethics list treating people with dignity as a core value. Hicks’s book Leading with Dignity brilliantly explains its meaning through practical steps resulting in an ethical culture.”—W. Michael Hoffman, Executive Director of the Center for Business Ethics, Bentley University

“This important book speaks directly to leadership and reminds all of us in organizational leadership roles how vital it is to create cultures where the concept of dignity is both understood and embraced. Dignity in practice truly begins at the top!”—Jeanette Clough, President & CEO, Mount Auburn Hospital
