Challenging the theory of disengagement

Over the past few years, evidence has accumulated that enlightened leadership creating highly engaged employees is good for business. Companies that pride themselves on engagement tend also to be resilient over the long-term. Everyone has their favourite example, be it Semco, WL Gore, John Lewis, Westpac, Marks & Spencer or Arup (see our case studies section here). Students have their favourite guru, such as Jeffrey Pfeffer, Daniel Goleman or Lynda Gratton.

Is water the emerging big issue? It certainly should be, writes Jane-Fiona Cumming. Currently 25% of the world’s population is living in an area of water stress.

Radical risks

The rise of the Tea Party in the USA and some previously fringe parties in Europe is an inevitable by-product of mistakes in the policies of deregulated finance and the European single currency. The mainstream parties are losing ground because they lack a description of what has gone wrong and a clear pathway out. This does not mean that every alternative will be better. We’re entering dangerous territory.

The National Front and Jean-Luc Mélenchon in France currently have the support of almost 30% between them, in pre-election opinion polls. For all their antagonism, these two forces have similar policies: …
