"Future Politics" (2018) by Jamie Susskind - a book about how politics are bound to change in the digital age. I think the "corporate rebellion" is connected to the changing political landscape, too.

I'm in the middle of this one by Bob Chapman. So far, impressive story of how to treat people well through supportive leadership.

Yes! I feel that too. That the movement into creating working environments that support the human spirit is very much symbiotic with a shift in our political way of being and how we relate in this space.

I'm reading 'Dare To Lead' by Brene Brown. Good inspiration about how to use your vulnerability as a leader.
Does anyone have good suggestions for Audible? I'm commuting a lot lately, so audio books are perfect for me :-)

Hi Florine, I enjoyed 'Dare to Lead' a lot as well. It that was expiring to you, you might enjoy 'The Work' by Byron Katie or 'Non violent communication' by Marshall Rosenberg as well. Both available on audible

Only published in Dutch now, however they are working on a translation to English already. It is "De meeste mensen deugen" ("Most people are good") by Rutger Bregman.

It gives an interesting perspective on whether we humans, are good or bad, based on psychology, economy, biology and archaeology. And what this perspective means for our society.

And the same, for how we organize our work. Do we need all these managers, procedures, rules and controls? Or could we actually trust each other slightly more?

I've got a few books on the go and for the first time in a long time I've picked up a book that is Historical Fiction. It's the The Tattooist of Auschwitz. It's definitely a book worth reading. Alongside that I'm also reading Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind then starting on 21 Lessons for the 21st Century both by Yuval Noah Harari.

Lovely list, let us know which you recommend, I'm quite curious to the ones by Yuval Harari.
