The Regenerative Business
Redesign Work, Cultivate Human Potential, Achieve Extraordinary Outcomes
By Carol Sanford
Award-winning author, expert speaker and executive coach, Carol Sanford, borrows the concept of regeneration from biology and uniquely applies it to business strategy with an emphasis on: human potential, work systems,
resilience and growth.
What if leaders stripped away all preconceptions about how business operates, allowing the organization to go back to its core and build itself back up to become something new-something so responsive, so innovative and resilient, it becomes virtually non-displaceable in the market? The Regenerative Business sets the stage for what is now only dreamt of by most of today's forward-thinking leaders and paves the path to make it possible. The book features:
-Real stories from companies leading innovation and transformation across the globe including; Google, Colgate Europe, Seventh Generation, Nike and others
-A logical, comprehensive approach that factors in the complexities of the modern organization
-The work of internationally-recognized leadership expert Carol Sanford, who for decades has been designing and leading systemic business change
Carol Sanford's work is deeply rooted in the belief that people can grow and develop beyond what their leaders or anyone sees possible: to be increasingly entrepreneurial, innovative, and responsible in their business and personal actions. For forty years, she has worked with leaders of successful companies, such as Google, DuPont, Intel, P&G, and Seventh Generation, helping them to innovate and grow their businesses by growing their people. Her work is often called groundbreaking, game changing, original, and inspiring. Carol is currently Executive in Residence and Senior Fellow in Social Innovation at Babson College.
