"Success and happiness depend on being connected – to colleagues, customers, investors, partners; also to community and friends, to nature and the physical environment, and between working life and your own ideals and values. Where connectedness is fractured, we experience soulless organisations, miserable people and a desecrated planet. ‘Managing Around the World: Roundtables for experienced managers’ strengthens connections at all levels and gives you practical tools for connected management, business and society."
