It’s true that if a start-up fails — or is sold — the need for enduring leadership may never arise. Can Building Great Products Help You Build Great Teams? - Deep Nishar

If there's one thing practically all futurologists once agreed on, it's that in the 21st century there would be a lot less work. What would they have thought, if they had known that in 2012, the 9-5 working day had in the UK become something more like 7am to 7pm? They would surely have looked around and seen technology take over in many professions which previously needed heavy manpower, they would have looked at the increase in automation and mass production, and wondered – why are they spending 12 hours a day on menial tasks? It's a question which isn't adequately answered either by the right or by the official left.

Comment développer un leadership éthique et responsable? Il y a une dizaine de jours à Bordeaux, dans le cadre de la première rencontre hommes-entreprise organisée par le CECA * (Centre Entreprise et Communication Avancée), j’ai eu la chance d’assister à une conférence passionnante d ‘Emmanuel Toniutti, d octeur en théologie et philosophie, spécialiste de l’accompagnement du changement . Le thème de son intervention? Le leadership éthique et responsable, ou comment remettre l’Homme au coeur du dispositif en prenant des décisions adaptées aux valeurs de l’entreprise. Qu’est-ce que l’éthique en entreprise ? Emmanuel Toniutti a débuté sa présentation en marquant la différence entre éthique et morale : initialement, les deux notions se référaient aux bonnes moeurs, aux comportements justes en société ( note: un comportement « juste » ne doit pas être confondu avec un comportement « gentil ») .
