Who Cares Wins by @davidjoneshavas - a brilliant read

I am attending the launch of a book by a very great man called David Jones on the 1st December, in my exciement for this book I was able to get hold of an early copy thanks to Nick Giles at Seven Hills PR http://www.wearesevenhills.com/.

I am really enjoying the read as David talks very passionately about the types of companies that will survive and thrive in the new economy of engagement and really caring.

Today, businesses are under the spotlight more than ever before by all thier stakeholders. David Jones argues that business leaders must re-evaluate their role in society or face unprecedented criticism.

In Who Cares Wins: Why good business is better business
, Jones writes that only the businesses that behave responsibly will survive the 'Age of Damage' and cites social media as the driver for the biggest transformation to business in a generation.

As a strong advocate for social media, I am in total agreement with David Jones on this. Never before have consumers had such power to create change.

David Jones argues that it is no longer a question of whether or not a company buys into the idea of doing good to do well. The digital revolution has ensured that businesses can't opt out because those that fall foul of their customers will suffer swift punishment.

The timing of his book could not be more appropriate, as the world hovers on the brink of another recession, the Eurozone sits in crisis and the level of youth unemployment is rising at an alarming rate, companies have to start thinking differently, as Thomas Power says, we have to be Network Thinkers, not Institutional Thinkers.

It's nice to see a global business leader talking sense and David really is a Global leader with a lot of influence. You can read more about him HERE

This is one of those books that makes you think and provides tangible advice to ensure companies are not caught out in this era of 'radical transparency'.

If you want to read this book. Amazon will be shipping this week I believe - would be good to get your thoughts

Hi Penny and Jeff Thanks for the insights and the links, really worthwhile. All organisations have their greatest asset in their staff and many now realise that and more and more the old adage of "it is not what you know but who you know" will apply as we all interconnect. Knowledge is the one thing we can all give away which does not diminish but helps others grow and connections and the proper way of dealing with who you know and what you do will be there for all to see more and more. Here's to the best Humanity Network of all that is building day by day in Ecademy.

I'm proud to say that Havas / Euro RSCG are some of my best clients. They've been exploring ways to do business more responsibly for a good decade now. It's been a pleasure seeing it work, and being involved with it.

Hi Jeff and Dean Thank you for your comments Jeff, great to see the resources you linked me to thank you Dean - I agree, staff management has a long way to go, I guess that is the final breakdown of the Institutional attitudes, when managers really have to care, many do, but a lot just don't have time to as so focused on tasks they forget humans! warm regards Penny Power Founder of Ecademy and Digital Youth Academy Helping you build social capital in your business and life Follow @pennypower Follow @pennypower I support: ;

I've not read the book but I definitely subscribe to the outline you have described here. I think it also it relates to how employers need to treat their staff. Too regularly I see businesses lead their personnel through fear of losing their jobs. Be good to see a change where businesses realise that staff are not their property but business partners. They simply take a wage in exchange for their skills/ expertise/ input...........
