A.02 – About The Book – Psychology of Arab Management Thinking M
For a long time now, I have been putting off the idea of writing this book – though it had been on my mind for a long time now. The mere idea of writing this book scared me to bits and pieces – for many valid and pertinent reasons.
As Arabs, work is worshipped (Islamic Religion calls on us to respect work like as if it is in praying). We are also brought up to be polite, courteous and decent (at least a majority of us). Abrupt, ugly, rudeness and distort are discouraged. Also it is not easy to say NO – as part of the culture, customs, traditions and heritage. So what went wrong here – especially in Management circles? Why are we behind the rest of the world, despite all our riches and resources?
I hope you will enjoy the book. I have tried to be as frank, open, forthright, honest, sincere and genuine as I can – as Readers who know me can give credence and credibility to me and will vouch and authenticate my works.
It is a no punch-spared, no barrels held stiff, no frills – play but to be as frank, open and honest as possible – so it can be a learning process for this generation and others to come in the future.
I have not spared myself, so there is just for it to be honest, sincere, genuine and hard hitting – sparing no one. Just No One.
