Summary

Celebrated the world over for his gentle wit and keen insight into human behavior, Charles Handy is widely regarded as one of today's best social and business philosophers. This latest collection of Handy's work groups twenty-one of the revered BBC commentator's best essays on why organizations and the people in them behave the way they do. Beginning with ''A World of Differences,'' which voices Handy's fresh take on diversity in the workplace, each essay is a bite-sized bit of humor and wisdom that sheds new light on what motivates people on the job. As useful as they are incisive, these twenty-one ideas should be heard by anyone seeking fresh perspectives on how better to manage themselves and others.
