Abstract

The financial Crash of 2008 was not just about government regulation or lack thereof; the low tide of the Crash also revealed just how vulnerable our societies are to those organizations which focus so much on their own self-serving goals, that they ignore the damage they can do outside their walls. To counter this, the authors ask whether there is a better way to run this capitalist system of ours, instead of being tempted to throw it out and replace it with something much worse. Their prescription is to create the high engagement work culture in our organizations through a greater balance between the urges of 'me' and the desires and needs of 'we'; a work culture which brings real benefits to all stakeholders, not just the few, and drives the performance of our organizations to new heights. This is not 'pie in the sky': it is being lived by those companies featured in detail in these pages, such as Whole Foods Market and BMW.
