I personally have not found a book that is impactful as “Everything Connects” in showing us as humans how we can shift our thinking of business as a means to better ourselves and the world around us.
In my recent interview with Faisal Hoque we discuss his new book, and the impact it is having on business leaders. Faisal and his co-author Drake Baer do an amazing job of weaving the human elements of connecting our souls calling to what we do in business and just how this has an impact on innovation, creativity and sustainability.
Drawing from organizational theory, neuroscience, management theory, psychology, spirituality and self improvement, Everything Connects illustrates how these different views of the world can be interconnected. “Making connections between disparate things is a key to creative thinking, so seeing these relationships is one of the keys to catalyzation,” says Hoque.
I hope you enjoy my interview with Faisal Hoque about his new book “Everything Connects”. If you want to learn more about the book click here to be connected to the book website. If you want to learn more about Faisal and his technology companies click here to be directed to his personal website.
I recently had a wonderful interview with an amazing man and steward of our planet, John Ehrenfeld.
In John’s new book entitled ” Flourishing-A Frank Conversation About Sustainability”. John engages in a Q&A with Andrew Hoffman a previous student of John’s where the met while Andrew was a doctoral student at MIT and John was running the MIT Program on Technology, Business and the Environment.
In my interview with John you will quickly realize that he has many concerns about our environment and sustainability. As John states “While sustainability has gone “mainstream” he does not believe so and is very concerned about what he see. He admits that many good things have come out of our society’s pursuit of environmental protection, but he sees our efforts as merely a Ban-Aid that masks deeper, cultural roots of our sustainability challenges.
One of those issues is our insatiable appetite as a culture for more which utilized our natural resources at an alarming rate, and makes the US the largest consumer of overall resources worldwide.
“Sustainability still has not entered our consciousness in spire of the torrent of its use and that of its distant cousin, green. The world of business and government moves merrily along selling its meager efforts as sustainability, avoiding any meaningful appreciation of the fundamental problem or any actions that would make a difference.”
In my interview with John we cover many pressing topics, I encourage you to listen to and read John’s new book it will open up your eyes to what “really” need to change to create a world that “flourishes” for everyone.
