The WEIRD Book

The WEIRD CEO

Book by Charles Towers-Clark

In The WEIRD CEO, Charles sets out the technological and societal changes that will take place over the next fifteen years, and explains why companies need to rethink the way they motivate employees. He outlines why CEOs and managers need to encourage Wisdom, Emotional Intelligence, Initiative, Responsibility and Development (WEIRD) to make sure employees feel fulfilment and ownership in their work – and gives a fascinating and sometimes brutally honest record of the change process his company went through.

The WEIRD CEO explains how and why we need to change, in order to deal with a new working world dominated by Artificial Intelligence.
