Principles: Life and Work

Maybe you heard David Brancaccio's interview with Ray Dalio, founder of Bridgewater Associates, the biggest private hedge fund in the world, on a recent Marketplace Morning Report. If not, give it a listen.



One of the most interesting things Dalio said was, "The key is to be good with each other. If you're radically truthful with the other person and you believe that that other person is going to be truthful with you, while that may be difficult initially in that moment, it builds better relationships and it builds better quality work. And then if you're radically transparent with people so that they get to see things directly so that there's not spin, that really makes an idea meritocracy."

If this sounds like something your organization could embrace, give Principles: Life and Work by Ray Dalio a try. Order on-line from The Bookman, and have it delivered to your office or home!
