The rules of business are changing dramatically, says the Aspen Institute’s Judy Samuelson, and that means profound shifts in attitudes and mindsets that are redefining our notions of what constitutes business success. In this week’s episode with Senior Correspondent Steve Scher, she shares takeaways contained in her book The Six New Rules of Business: Creating Real Value in a Changing World.
Based on her unique knowledge and insight, Samuelson lays out how hard-to-measure intangibles like reputation, trust, and loyalty are imposing new ways to assess risk and opportunity in investment and asset management. In our globalized era, she demonstrates how expectations of corporations are set far beyond the company gates–and why employees are both the best allies of the business and the new accountability mechanism, more so than consumers or investors. Don’t miss this powerful guide on how businesses are changing and what is needed to succeed in tomorrow’s economy—and stay in the know about what’s happening in this moment at Town Hall Seattle.
