Despite decades of research illustrating the benefits of enlightened leadership, the high-performance workplace is still not the norm. Our guest has spent 20 years investigating this paradox, and in this book she forms a penetrating critique of why such strong evidence has had limited impact, and provides an alternative practical approach that any employer can implement to overcome these challenges.
She shows that there is a clear correlation between those companies that are good companies and those that do well, with ‘good meaning an organization that works with stakeholders, employees, society and customers. While a ‘bad’ company can do well, its success isn t sustainable – her book explores the steps needed to be taken to become a good organization with long-term, sustainable results.
She brings together management wisdom and shows how successful leaders have moved their organizations from controlled and orderly, to enthusiastic and collaborative. Supported by insights from 59 of the leading thinkers and practitioners in the field, the book will guide readers through the arguments for a radical reassessment of current business models, and the successful stories of employers from the private and public sectors who have made the transition.
