Alan M. Webber, one of the cofounders of Fast Company, describes how life, driven by globalization, technology, and the knowledge economy, are changing at a remarkable rate and while some might fear this change, true innovators are prepared to seize the moment and rewrite the rules of business. Drawing on the lessons he's learned from experience with famous leaders, obscure entrepreneurs, brilliant Nobel Prize winners, and modest community organizers Webber boiled his notes down to what he believes are the 52 best rules of thumb. In this audiobook the author delivers his own words with a voice that is authoritative and friendly, self-assured and down to earth. His tone matches the lessons themselves; from pragmatic strategies to universal aphorisms his truths are simple yet profound.
Drawing from his own experiences as cofounding editor of Fast Company magazine and a wide range of interactions with some of the world's leading thinkers and highest achievers, including Nobel Prize winners and global change agents, Webber has produced 52 "rules of thumb" - a collection that is as wise as it is useful and as honest as it is helpful. The rules come from real-life lessons learned and recorded on three-by-five cards, a trick borrowed from one of the many mentors whose teachings Webber captures and catalogues in this book.
If you're looking for practical advice on how to win at work without losing your self, if you want to change your life to meet the challenge of change, or if you want to learn from some of the world's most interesting and creative people, let Alan M. Webber take you on a remarkable journey toward greater personal understanding and, ultimately, greater personal success.
