Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0253342392, Hardcover)

"This is the book that needed to be written in this time of tribulation for American business.... a must-read."—Norman R. Augustine, Chairman of the Executive Committee, Lockheed Martin Corporation

"Aspiring CEOs and leaders of all kinds—as well as anyone depressed at recent revelations of the dark side of American business behavior—should read this book."—Nannerl O. Keohane, President, Duke University

"He has accurately described the critical role that character plays in the leadership equation... and in life. This is a superb book."—General Charles C. Krulak (Ret), 31st Commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps

Like a moose in the living room, some problems are hard to ignore. Randall Tobias says that whether these problems are in business or in life, it is best to confront them openly and honestly.

Put the Moose on the Table sets forth the ethical lessons Tobias first learned as a youth in Remington, Indiana, which continued to guide his upward trajectory through the business world. Among the topics he discusses are leading by example, dealing with wrenching change, the importance of openness versus secrecy, mentoring, and "the vision thing."

This is an enlightening and hopeful book about succeeding without selling out, turning change to advantage, and confronting difficult issues, told from the point of view of one who has played a significant role in two of the major corporate transformations of our time.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:25:25 -0400)

In the spring of 1849, David Tobias, a first-generation Welsh immigrant, purchased a small, unpretentious plot of land near the Muscatatuck River in southern Indiana and built a water-powered mill on its banks.
