Product Description

Product Description

Do you know which business leader plays a game of Sudoku every night before going to bed?
Never uses a computer to write important thoughts?
Likes to stand and work?

In Working Out of the Box Aparna Piramal Raje gives us an intimate peek into 40 progressive leaders by exploring the connections between their work spaces and their work styles. Capturing quirks, individual styles of working, motivations, and LEADERSHIP traits, and tracing the patterns exhibited by these leaders, she unravels their defining qualities and explains how it reflects in their work spaces. Divided into four sections- personal energy, organizational capital, brand values, environment and sustainability-based each on an intangible asset, the book gives us an insight into what makes these CEOs tick and how they manage their most valuable assets.

Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
A very interesting collection of stories which captures how workplaces reflect workstyles, and how workstyles tell us more about leadership styles, of leading Indian and global CEOs such as Martin Sorrell (WPP), Kumar Mangalam Birla (Aditya Birla Group), Deepak Parekh (HDFC), N Chandrasekaran (TCS), Nitin Nohria (Harvard Business School) and other well-known corporate figures. Reading it, I feel like I'm seated next to the author, along with the CEO in his/her office space. The workstyles template helps in understanding my personal work style, and figuring out which work environments suit me best.
