Product description


"Bruce Weinstein explains why and how you want to be and hire 'the Good Ones' in this anecdote-rich and important book. You and your organization need to read and learn what Weinstein advises."
-- Mark Sanborn, bestselling author of The Fred Factor, Fred 2.0, and You Don't Need a Title to Be a Leader

"All too often, we focus on competence and overlook the importance of character. In this thoughtful book, ethics expert Bruce Weinstein gives us the tools to correct that imbalance."
-- Adam Grant, Wharton professor and New York Times bestselling author of Give and Take

"This inspiring, fast-moving book shows you how to hire, manage, motivate, and get the very best out of a team of excellent people."
-- Brian Tracy, bestselling author of How the Best Leaders Lead and Eat That Frog!

"The Good Ones is a must-read for managers and employees alike. In a world that sometimes has a win-at-all-costs attitude, it is good to read about how you can have long-term success by surrounding yourself with people of high character. From now on I will incorporate character questions when conducting interviews and will look at the ten qualities associated with high-character individuals as part of my hiring process."
-- John Owen, global business director at Thomson Reuters

"I don't know which is more exciting, the tools for recognizing character in the interview process or the 'permission' it gives companies to focus on character in the first place. Either way, this is an important and valuable book for any organization."
-- David LevIn, author of Don't Just Talk, Be Heard! and coauthor (with John G. Miller) of QBQ! The Question Behind the Question

"Bruce Weinstein has put together a survival kit that just might save your job. Want to get ahead? Read The Good Ones, a road map to a better life."
-- Bob Dotson, national correspondent for NBC News and Today, and New York Times bestselling author of American Story: A Lifetime Search for Ordinary People Doing Extraordinary Things

"Bruce's ten qualities of high-character employees ring true to me. I've hired hundreds of individuals over the past thirty-five years, and when I've failed in hiring it's almost always been about an individual's character, not their skills. We need more sound character in our workplaces, and this book is a great and entertaining way to learn more about why character matters."
-- David L. Brown, MD, former chair of the anesthesiology Institute at the Cleveland Clinic and founder of Curadux

"The Good Ones helps individuals and institutions integrate ten character traits critical to success. Dr. Weinstein's expert weaving of valid interview questions throughout each chapter provides hiring managers with tools for identifying good people, but also provides job candidates with legitimate samples of behavior-based interview answers to those questions, which will help them land good positions. Finally, employees can apply this book's recommendations by emulating the ten traits necessary to propel them to the leadership ranks. I will personally keep The Good Ones close, regularly referencing its resourceful contents in my daily interactions with clients, colleagues, friends, and family."
-- J. Kim Scholes, strategic human capital consultant at Booz Allen Hamilton

"Bruce Weinstein has done it again! The insights, practicality, and wisdom shared in this book will help businesses create 'Good Ones' in the workplace. This book is a wonderful, easy read filled with practical examples. All organizations need to focus on character and accountability in the manner Weinstein suggests. Read this book, implement what Weinstein recommends, and watch what happens!"
-- Frank C. Bucaro, CSP, CPAE, Values-Based Leadership Expert and author of If Good Ethics Is Good Business, What's the Problem?

"I really enjoyed this remarkable book! It's well written, with a bit of humility sprinkled in for a good measure, which I liked. The concept of the Good Ones translates well into Russian, which is another indication of how goodness transcends boundaries."
-- Anatoly Yakorev, director of the Center for Business Ethics & Compliance, International University in Moscow
