Details

Leaders multiply their skills by developing skills in others.

Keep your word, because you will see the same people over and over again when you’re on an island.

We need to constantly show respect for others by listening and paying attention to their problems.


In Lessons Learned on Bishop Street, his follow-up to the best-selling Lessons Learned on the Corner in Kalihi, Wesley T. Park dispenses wisdom that will find applications in the smallest mom-and-pop store and the biggest boardroom on Bishop Street. These are simple lessons—offered in the form of homespun adages—learned through the experience of climbing from the bottom rung, as a youthful trouble-maker in Kalihi, to the top of Honolulu’s corporate ladder, leading some of Hawai‘i’s most successful companies.

A veteran of Bishop Street’s boardrooms, Park knows the importance of local values in doing business in the Islands. As William “Buzzy” Hong (Hawai‘i Building and Construction Trades Council) notes, “Wes combines the street-smart thinking of his youthful days with his business acumen of today…[this book is] a wise and practical management resource for business, labor unions and government.” Raised in a blue-collar Honolulu neighborhood and educated at the University of Hawai‘i-Manoa, Park has held management positions in Hawai‘i’s academic and business communities.
