Summary
In this challenging and exhilarating collection of 35 recent essays, the best-selling author and social philosopher shares his reflections on a changing world, a world in which we can be certain only of uncertainty. To plan for the future in such an environment, says Charles Handy, we must learn to think differently. In vintage Handy style, the author offers pearls of wisdom and truths about work and organizational life. He advocates compromise as the path to progress and urges organizations to give more freedom to individual employees in order to maintain a balance between commitment and creativity. Beyond Certainty is a book to dip into, enjoy, and share with colleagues and friends
