the human enterprise

By Barney Loehnis
The Human Enterprise is a conversation with leaders, entrepreneurs, investors and ordinary people about what makes work meaningful; what makes work, work; and how to drive the best performance from the people the comprise the enterprise. We talk about how to create business value through culture, leadership, digital innovation and the employee experience. What are those unmistakably human touches that make an enterprise great? Can they be scaled and what can we learn from them?
