Quotes & Awards

  • “In a conversational narrative…Benedict’s point is clearly and entertainingly explicated.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Author Jeff Benedict’s reading is remarkably professional. Without sounding dispassionate, he stands back from a story that could easily have tapped into his pride or righteousness as a devout Mormon. His audible humility conveys respect for the sensibilities of his audience as well as for these distinguished executives.”

    AudioFile

  • “Religious beliefs notwithstanding, the examples here prove that leadership that values the human element and does not compromise integrity and the environment does not equate to a competitive disadvantage but rather the opposite.”

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Julie | 2/6/2014

    " Very interesting. I still don't know why anyone would WANT to work 75-80 hours per week. Maybe they enjoy it as much as I enjoy quilting, reading, messing around? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Kate | 2/3/2014

    " Though the author is LDS also, it wasn't written for an LDS audience. It profiles about 8 or so very successful LDS business people (CEOs and the like) and their take on everything from tithing and working on sunday to managing time/priorities and handling power and how these things have helped them achieve success. A really interesting book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Jordan | 1/31/2014

    " An interesting view into the lives of some LDS CEOs of major companies and how they are able to balance the demands of work, church callings, and spending time with family. It is very inspirational to read what these men have been able to accomplish through hard work and self discipline. "
