Interconnectivity, Flow, and Balance: A Values-Based Framework for Reinventing Leadership in Uncertain Times by Yvette Bethel
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Interconnectivity, Flow, and Balance: A Values-Based Framework for Reinventing Leadership in Uncertain Times by Yvette Bethel is an informative book for business owners and managers on workplace behavior and culture divided into three distinct parts.
In part one, we are introduced to the idea of interconnectivity, flow and balance in business. At 406 pages, this is a pretty in depth look into the subject and I felt like this part could have been simplified and significantly shortened while still getting the idea laid out.
Part two is titled, Pillar of Trust. This pillar, consisting of integrity, self-mastery, and a "we" mentality, is what her model of leadership is based on.
Part three, IFB by Design, lays out the path on how to create and maintain a positive workplace environment encompassing interconnectivity, flow, and balance. Though a lot of this boils down to common sense, the author is correct that good values in business are less and less common. I'm not sure I agree with her claim that this system can be implemented across the board, from baseline social interactions to entire governments to cure all that ails us.
