About the Book

The book refers to ethical management and to internal competition which happens to profit and non-profit organizations. Today's society is highly competitive and exhibits a high rate of aggressiveness, particularly when it comes to professional matters. In the midst of sales pressure and external competition, this kind of hostile conduct threatens to disrupt delicate balances within companies and organizations. Proper and ethical management can be a remedy to the loss of stability in organizations. Effective management contributes to the resolution of ambiguous matters, proper decision-making and the restoration of a healthy professional environment in the workplace. In such cases, powerful and effective leadership plays a major role in the operations of management, entailing significant and often harsh decisions. One should keep in mind though, that such references on the book constitute the aftermath of improper management or ineffective leadership which fails to cope with rivalries and conflicts that stem from personal interest, pursuit of glory, recognition and power. “War” or dispute between colleagues derive from hostility or fear due to a particular deed. The last one also serves as a starting point for all the instances mentioned in the book.
