Achieving Success Through Ethical Resilience
by J. Dawson Williams D. Min. View author's profile page

Overview



About This Book:

A fresh new angle for addressing prejudice and discrimination (causes, consequences, and remedies) makes this fascinating book difficult to put down.  Ethics and resilience are illuminated by thorough and sensible discussion of ways they comprise a very potent antidote for this problem.  Personal experiences of individuals who have participated in biased systems as both aggressors and victims are interwoven as a framework for presenting views on ethical resilience, bias, inequality, leadership, and power dynamics.  Readers are delighted along the way by use of analogies involving entities such as an elephant, a bee, flea, lion, and Zebra, in illustration of ways that human beings can change, reduce our stress, and remain energized, while Overcoming Systemic Prejudice and Discrimination.  Having garnered a “Five Star” Readers’ Favorite rating, this thoughtful release is an excellent resource for upcoming professionals, leaders influential in your field, people who feel cornered or powerless, and discussion groups.   If your aim is to increase social awareness of discriminatory and unethical practices, with a view to create positive systemic change and empowerment, you can’t miss with this book.

J. Dawson
Reviewed by Daniel D. Staats for Reader's Favorite J. Dawson Williams has given us a book of ethics in Overcoming Systemic Prejudice and Discrimination. Williams explains what systemic prejudice is and how it works as well as discrimination and the effects on the workforce. Often prejudice and discrimination are insidious. Williams also explains that institutionalized discrimination is more caught than taught. He goes further to explain why the average worker does not rise in protest and protect those facing discrimination. Williams does not give a bleak picture of no hope but includes ways to eradicate the hate while growing both acceptance and equality in the workforce as well as in society. His solution is called Ethical Resilience. J. Dawson Williams brings hope for the future. Read more
