From the Inside Flap

Sacred Jewish texts such as the Torah and the Kabbalah have long been considered repositories of some of the greatest wisdom ever assembled. Yet only the smartest and most successful business professionals take advantage of these powerful collections of advice. Using real-world business situations as illustrative examples,Jewish Wisdom for Business Success reveals a four-thousand-year-old blueprint for success. From negotiation techniques, to management, to leadership, and much more, this enlightening and practical guide will give you the direction you need to make the knowledge found in some of the world's greatest texts work for you.

Weaving in examples of over two dozen modern-day, real-life business situations,Jewish Wisdom for Business Success shows how you can use the teachings and stories found in the Jewish texts to achieve incredible results in your work and career. You'll find practical insights on how you can:

conquer the fear that may be holding you back • harness will power

• remove your ego from the equation to maintain valuable deals and partnerships • master negotiation techniques • deal with failure • utilize spiritual entrepreneurship • harvest the power of positivity • and find the right balance of character traits to succeed in any career or business venture

The book demonstrates how Moses used his own unique leadership style to exemplify healthy self-esteem while guarding against an over-inflated sense of confidence while locking horns with the Egyptian Pharaoh…how Abraham used effective advance marketing, employing the risky business strategy of dramatically smashing the inventory in his father's wooden idol shop to build a permanent following…and how Jacob, faced with his uncle's trickery, found the proper balance between two contrasting management styles to come out ahead. Throughout the book, special "Insights for Business" and "Insights for Life" sections encapsulate and expand the focus of each lesson, giving you practical actions you can use to follow through on what you've just read.

Combined with present-day tales of big business and figures such as Donald Trump and Warren Buffett, as well as companies including Google, Citigroup, and others, the time-tested guidance found in the ancient texts equates to proven management and leadership lessons you can use in your own life. This is an enlightening, inspiring guide that will help you climb the rungs of success using the same principles that have worked since the days of the Bible.
