Business Lessons from Schindler’s List

If I could recommend a movie to anyone in business, I would suggest Schindler’s List, a 1993 war drama by director Steven Spielberg (buy it on Amazon).

I love watching movies. The cinematography. The compelling storyline. The characters. Their on-screen development.

There is always a lesson to be learned from watching film, and I had several emotions come up after watching Schindler’s List.

The most powerful feeling that I had after watching this movie was that it’s good to be good.

Seems logical, yet how many of us treat others respectfully? With care and devotion?

We could all learn a lesson or two from real-life German businessman Oskar Schindler, who saved the lives of countless Jewish people during the Holocaust by employing them in his factories.

In this film, we see that good can be the answer.

If you are employing people, how do you treat them? Perhaps there is opportunity for more kindness beyond our standards.
