The most inspiring stories have always involved fundamental struggles that we can all relate to. Struggles against genuine adversity such as injustice, hunger, thirst and poverty. The Inspired Workplace is a leadership and cultural development book unlike any other. It has been predicated on the assumption that the most inspiring people in the world are not those of us lucky enough to receive a private school education, but those people that have had to struggle against and overcome the most tragic of circumstances.
This book will help reinvigorate your practice as a leader. It will remind you of what is truly important in life and enable you to shape a truly inspired workplace.
