Michael Chavez and Sudhanshu Palsule
Putting Purpose Back into Business
LID Publishing, 2020
As the future of work changes, thriving in the 21st century will require embracing your humanity.
The workplace will be drastically different in 2030: AI, robotics and machine learning will threaten firms that cling to outdated 20th-century business models. But it won’t be as dystopian as you might fear, say academicians Sudhanshu Palsule and Michael Chavez. Embracing your humanity is the secret to thriving in the new economy. Palsule and Chavez explain how to use valuable human skills, like empathy. Writing in an analytical, instructional style, they deftly distill complex ideas into a guidebook for leaders, challenging traditional concepts of power and human nature, and reimagining the purpose of organizations.
