The book attempts to present the perils of the business of banking, particular for minority banks, even in the midst of success. The jealousy and internal strife that prevents not only the institution from achieving its ultimate success but also any business or institution, especially in light of those whose careers are immeasurably linked to that success or failure. The old saying that “a rising tide lifts other boats” is also true in business, with its employees.
This book is intended to help others, especially those in other professions, to envision the whole picture and not just see things through their own lenses. To support your staff and encourage them in their performance of their duties proves to be a vital source and determines the quality of its management, its style, and its effectiveness. Any corporate entity needs all of its staff or employees to be on the same page or know the goal of the operation once it is defined. Accordingly, any rewards or attributes for that success must be administered fairly and equally. An ongoing concern should be the primary interest of all parties, especially those in the position of senior officials. I rest my case.
