'It would be easy to conclude that today's economic problems - inequality or the financial or environmental crisis - are too complex and intractable for any individual to tackle. Neela Bettridge and Philip Whiteley will convince you that everyone involved in corporate leadership must and can take personal responsibility. This book will set business leaders on the path toward addressing these profoundly important questions.'Diane Coyle, Director, Enlightenment Economics, and author of The Economics of Enough 'Bettridge and Whiteley present a compelling indictment of conventional measures used to gauge leadership performance in public and private enterprises. Stressing the illogical emphases on measures such as growth in GDP or quarterly earnings as consistent with long-term sustainability they bring substance to the much-ballyhooed catchphrase of sustainability that is more often than not part of the feel-good lexicon of corporate and governmental leaders. George Bernard Shaw aptly described the thesis of New Normal: Radical Shift when he wrote that all progress depends upon the unreasonable man. Bettridge and Whiteley dare to be unreasonable in offering a prescription for avoiding the recurring lessons of accounting scandals and asset bubbles of the 21st century by adoption of leadership assessments more in sync with today's dynamic global economic and political climate.'Jim Neal, contributing writer, Newsweek, founder of The Agema Group and candidate for US Senate 2008 --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

A must read book for leaders and managers everywhere who recognise the period of intense transition we are in, not just within our own organisation, but as a culture locally and globally.
A book for those looking to understand deeply, why the 'old ways' didn't work and who seek to a 'new way' that could dramatically impact business results and our standing in the global arena.
