My latest book, "Minds at Work", is now available for on Amazon. Here's a preview:
"Most management practices and principles used today were developed in the 19th century when we managed hands and learned at a very different pace. Digital technology, automation and globalization have forever changed everything. In the 21st century Knowledge Economy we produce knowledge and know-how, and need to manage minds that must continuously learn in dramatically new ways. Yet managers everywhere are still employing management principles and practices as if we were back in the 20th century.
There is a revolution happening around the world changing the way we manage people. "Minds at Work" shows you why that change is happening, and is a blueprint for what you need to do to make it happen in your company."
