Yhteys – avain johtamiseen

Alma talent 2024

The book brings together the perspectives of a psychologist, a theologian, an economist and a doctor of engineering on the effective management of the human connection in a fascinating way.

At the heart of the problems at work is a disconnect. We don’t know each other well, often not even ourselves. Technological advances and AI are challenging the way we connect and the culture of getting work done.

In successful organisations, connection is managed as a key part of the business, just like numbers. We need to create the conditions for quality encounters and know how to deal with complex situations – even those that evoke difficult emotions. This book provides the tools for effective relationship management.
