What if leaders stripped away all preconceptions about how business operates, allowing the organization to go back to its core and build itself back up to become something new—something so responsive, so innovative and resilient, it becomes virtually non-displaceable in the market? The Regenerative Business sets the stage for what is now only dreamt of by most of today's forward-thinking leaders and paves the path to make it possible. The book features:

  • Real stories from companies leading innovation and transformation across the globe, including Google, Colgate Europe, Seventh Generation, Nike, and others
  • A logical, comprehensive approach that factors in the complexities of the modern organization
  • The work of internationally recognized leadership expert Carol Sanford, who for decades has been designing and leading systemic business change
