Jim's Wisdom

Volume # 13

November 23, 2020


Looks like the time is coming when we can once again reestablish decency, integrity, and trust in our working lives and in our family and private lives as well. I’m recommending three excellent resources to help that process start or to move it along in your life and in the things you do in your life. Two of the three are already famous, the third is new, we released it this year and we hope it will enjoy success because it will bring you success as well.

Let me know how it turns out and what works for you. I’ll pass along your ideas.

The Decency Code: The Leader’s Path to Building Integrity and Trust

by Steve Harrison and James E. Lukaszewski


The essential guide to creating an honest, ethical workplace culture in any industry, organization, and even at home.

Steve Harrison’s book, The Manager’s Book of Decencies, showed how even the smallest gestures can produce big results and change the culture of an entire workforce. Now Jim Lukaszewski, America’s Crisis Guru® and Steve Harrison have teamed up to write the definitive guide to transforming or restoring your workplace into a showplace of honest, ethical behavior.

Here’s a recent review that says it all:

A Business Book Yes, But Also A Book For A Better Life

“I just finished reading The Decency Code, The Leaders Path To Building Trust And Integrity. To my pleasant surprise the book is both a useful business guide to one of the most troublesome issues of our time, rebuilding decency, civility, and trust and humility, honor and truth back in to our businesses and also into our personal lives.

“While I realize The Decency Code’s target is leadership in corporate and organizational settings, I found the stories and crisp checklists extremely valuable on a personal basis. It may be that I alone cannot fix the existing decency deficit and the loss of institutional trust in our society. These two authors clearly teach and provide important tools and techniques that I can use to better control my interactions with every individual I encounter, including friends and family.

“I can personally inspire them through what co-author Steve Harrison calls and repeatedly illustrates, “Small Decencies” and his decencies, "Wall of fame” on page 81, and co-author Jim Lukaszewski’s, "Civility and Decency Manifesto” a specific series of actions that help avoid crossing the line to incivility and indecency on page 79. I am inspired to give up opinion sharing and focus on acts of decency, civility, and trust, integrity, empathy and sincerity that I would like to see replicated in business and in life. Every page in this book seems to provide useful clues and concrete help.” -Virginia J. McCain, St. Paul, MN, 11/20/20
