The Beauty and Urgency of Building Community
After his keynote at the Sime conference in Stockholm, Tim was interviewed for an episode of the popular Heja Framtiden podcast.
“Tim Leberecht is the co-founder and CEO of The Business Romantic Society, and has written a book called The Business Romantic. He argues that human values will be increasingly important in a world – and business environment – dominated by algorithms, big data and hard profit. In other words, we need to step up our relationship-building skills, or sense of community and our common narrative.
If we can foster a more human, listening and inclusive environment, we may also be able to keep the outsiders and ”losers” of the future from subscribing to a world-view based on polarisation and disappointment. And another interesting question: what role can Europe play in this romantic future? We met Tim at the SIME 2019 conference at Epicenter in Stockholm.”
