There are writers whose language pervades our discourse so extensively that even those who have never heard of them will echo not only their sentiments but also their means of expression. One of these people is Charles Handy. Although Handy has all but ceased writing the books and features that once flowed so prodigiously, his work resonates to this day and not least because he was so far ahead of the curve in detailing many of the characteristics of modern organisations.It’s incredibly hard not to be impressed by Charles Handy and even harder not to find him likeable. The scope of his intellect and humanity is evident on the page, in his interviews and his broadcasts.
