Instead she lays out a tested framework for more ethical, humane, and productive workplaces. This ebook includes principles 3-8 (out of the 12). Did you know that businesses don't have to hold their shareholder's needs above all others? That some workplaces have no traditional bosses? That some organizations are structured to return much of the profit to the workers? Let this open your eyes to the opportunities for a more equitable, inspiring and innovative workplace that is designed for GREAT WORK. Audience: Entrepreneurs, senior management, MBA students, social enterprises.
