Wild Knowledge: Outthink the Revolution

Today, we live and do business in a world where society gathers knowledge faster than it gathers wisdom. It is a world of continuous revolution and change. Those who manage to find, structure and exploit the power of "Wild Knowledge" - ie, the untamed data, learnings and experiences that flourish in our lives and minds - will come out the winners. In combination, we need to develop our ability to understand and judge which aspects of that knowledge are applicable to business and life in general. This is the so-called "Vicious Wisdom" which will force you to unlearn, to choose an approach of unthinking, in order to reach a deeper understanding, meaning and reason in your quest to find new and different solutions. This book, written by a leading futurist/philosopher, presents a powerful and radical approach to thinking about and solving our future lives and businesses.

The Entrepreneurial Myth

The Entrepreneurial Myth explains how business creators are turned into all-powerful, never-fail gurus as they shoulder the collective necessity for enterprise. The Myth skews public policy, damages entrepreneurs' mental health, amplifies business failure rates and undermines our economies.
Based on analysis spanning thirty years, this book challenges the pervasive influence of the Entrepreneurial Myth and introduces the reader to Business Curation, an exciting new way to build businesses. It is a heartfelt call to business people and politicians, legislators and educators, to redesign enterprise for the next generation. Entrepreneurship - with all its griefs, glories and possibilities - belongs to us all.

The Human Moment

Organizations are becoming increasingly dehumanized. The move toward an AI-driven world of work means intense competition for a finite number of ‘human’ resources where the pressure to perform can incite an “I’m fine” response when a colleague enquires into our wellbeing. Opportunities to connect authentically with or care for one other at a basic human level are diminishing, and we only know our colleagues superficially.

 This book argues that human connections are formed by showing vulnerability and sharing stories of suffering. Creating a culture of workplace compassion is an organizational imperative in the 21stcentury where suffering is hidden, stress-related absence is growing and career burnout is a recognized phenomenon. The Human Momentsuggests that, by encouraging cultures of compassion, organizations can help to build healtheir workplace environments.
