RWTC - Winners Never Cheat

  1. 1. chairman and founder of Huntsman in 1970. By 2000, it had become the world's largest privately held chemical company and America's biggest family-owned and operated business, with more than $12 billion in annual revenues. He took the business public in early 2005. He was a special assistant to the president in the Nixon White House, was the first American to own controlling interest of a business in the former Soviet Union. Mr. Huntsman also has served on the boards of numerous major public corporations and philanthropic organizations, including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the American Red Cross. The Business School at Utah State University is named after him, as is the basketball arena at the University of Utah. The Huntsman businesses fund the foundation that is the primary underwriter for the prestigious Huntsman Cancer Institute in Salt Lake City, which he founded. The hospital/research facility has become a leader in the prevention, early diagnosis, genetic legacies, and humane treatment of cancer. He resides with his wife, Karen, in Salt Lake City.
  2. 2. After seeing Jon Huntsman on The Glenn Beck show, I knew I wanted to read this book and find out more about the man and his philosophy. I feel the book was worth the purchase price (especially because he donates the profits from the book), but I was a bit disappointed. I guess I expected more details regarding his life growing up and what shaped him. There were snippets, but not anywhere near enough. Also expected more details of his dealings in business, the ups and downs and how his values, honesty, and ethics carried him through.

  3. 3. ✓ Be fair. Share & share alike.✓ ✓ Don’t cheat. Tell the truth.✓ ✓ Play nicely. Although these childhood prescriptions may appear to have been forgotten in the fog of competition, Success comes to those who possess skill, courage, integrity, decency and generosity. Men and women who maintain their universally shared values tend to achieve their goals, know happiness in home and work, and Find greater purpose in their lives than simply Accumulating wealth. With moral compasses programmed in the sandboxes of long ago, we can navigate career courses with values that guarantee successful lives, a path that is good for one’s mental and moral wellbeing, not to mention long-term material success.
  4. 4. Every mentally balanced human being basically recognizes right from wrong. There is no such thing as a moral agnostic. Some people point out that today’s society tolerates too much questionable activity, making it difficult for young people to get a consistent fix on right and wrong. The ingredients for long-term success — courage, vision, follow-through, risk, opportunity, sweat, sacrifice, skill, discipline, honesty — never vary. In the winner-take-all atmosphere of today’s marketplace, shortcuts to success are alluring, and lying can often be lucrative. But scammers and cheaters have never lasted for long, and their fall is fast, painful and lasting.
  5. 5. Which rules we honor and which ones we ignore determine personal character, and it is character that determines how closely we will allow our value system to affect our lives. Character is most determined by integrity and courage. Your reputation is how others perceive you. Character is how you act when no one is watching. FOUNDATION-FOUNDATION-FOUNDATION Standards are important. Every family, home and school classroom has its standards. Children observe their elders so they know how to act. Employees watch supervisors. Citizens eye civic and political leaders. If these leaders and role models set bad examples, those following frequently follow suit. It’s that simple. There are no moral shortcuts in the game of business — or life.
  6. 6. What you sow, you will reap! Leadership demands decisiveness The Core Elements of Leadership ✓ Integrity Courage✓ ✓ Vision Commitment✓ ✓ Empathy Humility✓ ✓ Confidence Genuineness✓ ✓ Energy Engagement✓ Leadership is about taking risks To succeed, one must attempt new things
