Join us in the Relaunch of Saving the World at Work
:: Posted by Karen Harris on 16 September 2009
Remember the despondency of September 2008? Lehman Brothers declared bankruptcy and many other titans of Wall Street were on the edge of collapse. Fear and caution ruled the day as the media predicted another Great Depression. It was a tough time for Saving the World’s essential message to be heard: that conducting business with empathy, optimism and generosity is key to long-term corporate success.
Fast forward to September 2009 - the world has not ended and capitalism is far from dead (take that Chicken Littles!). As Tim says:
"There are reasons to believe that we could all get back to long-term business planning from technical to social without risking insolvency. This planet continues to get hotter. Local communities continue to buckle under economic pressure, when thoughtful companies could be synergistically helping. Employees still struggle to maintain quality of life. All of that is still there, a golden opportunity to build brands and social value at the same time.
Napoleon once said: the leader's role is to define reality then give hope. I am trying to use the platform of a book relaunch to inspire thousands of people to resume their late 2008 efforts, projects and programs too. If I learned anything from the tech-dotcom recession it is this: What you do at the bottom will make a BIG difference on your credibility and momentum during the next up-market."
For every copy of the book sold, Tim will donate $2 to the National Association for Urban Debate Leagues.
