“The pleasure of the Company”
Charles Handy interviewed by Peter Day

jasPosted by

Charles Handy made his name as the champion of what he calls the modern “portfolio career”: no more jobs for life. He started his working life as a business person: an oil company executive. In the 1960s he began the second stage of his portfolio career, helping to set up the London Business School. His third big job has been as an author of books about business, management and life in general. Combining striking metaphor and profound common sense, they include The Empty Raincoat, The Gods of Management, The Age of Unreason and The Second Curve. In this podcast Charles Handy reviews his own portfolio, regrets the replacement of the company by the corporation, and suggests some important things that businesses and organisations have to learn, or relearn.
