I have always loved the ideas and work of Charles Handy since I came across his work in the 80’s, he is an author.
I would recommend him to everyone.
He has wonderful ways of explaining about negotiations or the Johari window on how we are perceived.
This blog is as much about re-inventing myself as it is helping people re-invent themselves.
In one of his books, he tells the story of when he was negotiating a contract with the Chinese and he brought along a detailed contract and why they did not settle it.
As a point of relationship the message was simple, in that the relationship worked while it was profitable/good for both of them…
He has come out with a new book:
The Second Curve: Thoughts on Reinventing Society
