Overpopulation, hunger, pollution, climate change: the danger signs are all around us. Now Elaine Smitha sounds the alarm in this inspiring wake-up call. Drawing on concepts ranging from Henry Ford's innovative production line to cutting-edge discoveries of the “new biology,” Smitha reveals a startling correlation between businesses and living systems. What she uncovers provides the basis for a model of leadership based on principles of cooperative competition drawn from the natural world--principles that can set corporations and governments on a path of conscious, sustainable growth.
