Description

William Pollard draws upon his spiritual and practical insights--and those of other business and thought leaders--to show readers that principles of faith and smart business practices are not mutually exclusive, but can unite to strengthen corporate culture and lead to extraordinary financial success.

Imagine you are a manager at a large company. You stay current with the latest thinking in business management and leadership. You are up on the trends in sales and operations. But for the wealth of resources available, you haven't found much support in answering some of the most important questions about your business life: How can I manage the tension of living an authentic faith while delivering ever-increasing business results? Is there meaning in my work beyond making a living? How can I understand the world of money and profit in the context of my faith or a purpose and meaning for life? Who's been there before me?

Unlike the religious or faith-oriented books on the subject, Serving Two Masters provides practical insights from people who don't just read Fortune or The Wall Street Journal, but who are quoted in them. Drawn from over forty years of executive experience, Pollard's reflections will speak to everyone who has wrestled with the integration of faith and work as well as provice practical management and leadership insights taken straight from the real-world issues ServiceMaster faced when the firm was recognized by Fortune magazine as the nation's top service company.
