Why you should read Humanize
Social media provide a venue for human behavior: creating, connecting, sharing and interacting. In the social digital world, companies’ hierarchical systems, opaque structures and rigid processes – business practices that have worked for the past century – can become organizational death traps. To thrive in the digital age, your firm should be attuned to the same human-based principles that fuel social media. As management consultant Jamie Notter and social media expert Maddie Grant explain, this requires overhauling your business’s culture, processes and behaviors to include the human qualities of being “open, trustworthy, generative and courageous.” The authors do a good job of explaining why this is important, but are less attentive to explaining how to achieve it. getAbstract recommends this book’s insights to managers seeking to understand how social media can help them shape tomorrow’s successful companies today.
