Why being radically connected with society is not just the right thing to do, it is an imperative for a companys bottom lineBased on John Brownes decades of experience as one of the worlds most successful and innovative CEOs, with research by McKinsey & Company, Connect is a practical manifesto that redefines the role of business in society.Through insightful analysis and vivid storytelling—ranging from ancient China, Andrew Carnegie and the Homestead Strike of the late nineteenth century, to oil spills and privacy issues emanating from the technology of the twenty–first—Connect explores the recurring rift between business and society and proposes a way in which companies can prosper by connecting with the world around them.There is an enormous prize for leaders who engage creatively and constructively with society, and who make its needs part of their companys business model. The evidence presented in Connect shows that the value of radical connection amounts to 30 percent of corporate earnings. The shares of companies that connect outperform those of competitors by 2 percent every year, amounting to a performance boost of 20 percent over a decade.Connect rejects stale ideas about corporate social responsibility disconnected from commercial activity and from the needs of real people. It identifies four tenets of “connected leadership,” a radical new paradigm that shows how companies and executives can thrive by close engagement with society.

Beyond Business An Inspirational Memoir From a Remarkable Leader

Beyond Business An Inspirational Memoir From a Remarkable Leader

Author: John Browne Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 03/02/2011

An inspirational memoir from a remarkable leader. Once a lacklustre organisation, BP became one of the world's biggest, most successful and most admired companies in the new millennium. John Browne, the company's CEO for 12 years, invented the oil 'supermajor' and led the way on issues such as climate change, human rights and transparency. In BEYOND BUSINESS, Browne brings to life what he learned about leadership in a tough industry. His story encompasses the insights gained as he transformed a national company, challenged an entire industry and prompted political and business leaders to change. He takes us across the world on adventures that include going toe-to-toe with both tyrants and elected leaders, and involve engineering feats which in many ways rival those of going to the moon. And he shares his views on the true purpose of business and the leadership needed to tackle the grand challenges of our era. It is also a story of failure and human frailty, as Browne reveals how his private and public lives collided at frightening speed in full view of the world, prompting his abrupt resignation as CEO of BP.
