Since time immemorial, man has been engaged in the pursuit of wisdom. We are in search of 'wise' ideas on ways to cope with daily problems and answers to the everyday judgments and decisions we have to make.
How can we make the concept of wisdom more easily accessible for managers and business professionals? What relevance does the concept of wisdom hold for those managers and professionals who are confronted with challenges and who grapple with problems and ambiguities on a daily basis? The authors of Another State of Mind go back in cultural history to answer the key question how one can act wisely in the spirit of the present age.
The perspectives offered in this book demonstrate ways to create value to your personal, professional and organizational life.
