Thirty-five years ago, in 1984, Mary Kay Ash had already established a 20-year track record of running a successful cosmetic business her way. As a guide to other business leaders and entrepreneurs, Mary Kay turned the values she used to shape her dream company into a bestselling book: Mary Kay on People Management.
The new, definitive edition of the timeless classic includes the essential lessons for business success from the icon herself. The book features a brand-new illustrated cover and also includes a new, full-color timeline of Mary Kay Ash’s life with never-before-seen photos.’
“Thirty-five years ago, when my grandmother wrote down her essential business principles, some predicted the values wouldn’t work outside of Mary Kay,” said Ryan Rogers, chief investment officer for Mary Kay Inc. and author of the book’s new foreword. “Others said the principles were too ‘quaint’ to be practical. But Mary Kay was certain of one thing—these principles worked.”
Mary Kay on People Management became a bestseller that was lauded across industries as a revolutionary study into the art of business leadership, problem solving and contagious enthusiasm—all coupled into a formula for nurturing a high-performance corporate culture.
“The new edition will benefit any business leader or entrepreneur,” added Rogers. “This book is something the leadership of Mary Kay refers to on a daily basis—not only for how to do things the Mary Kay way, but how to build a workplace culture that fosters inclusion and concern for the health and well-being of its employees, one of the cornerstone lessons in her book.”
In Mary Kay on People Management, Mary Kay explains her philosophy on inspiring both people and profits; on applying the Golden Rule to all aspects of management: hiring, motivating, maximizing productivity and more; and most importantly, on proving that the rewards can be enormous when P&L not only means profit and loss but also people and love.
