alibabas_world

Gedurende September 2014 het ‘n Chinese maatskappy geskiedenis gemaak deur die grootste aanvanklike openbare aanbod (Initial Public Offering, of IPO) ooit aan te bied. Alibaba, wat nou die wêreld se grootste e-handel maatskappy is, het vir die afgelope tien jaar die aandag van die Amerikaners en die res van die wêreld, ontglip.

Title: Leaders eat Last Author: Simon Sinek Why do only a few people get to say “I love my job”? It seems unfair that finding fulfillment at work is like winning a lottery; that only a few lucky ones get to feel valued by their organizations, to feel like they belong. Imagine a world where almost everyone wakes up inspired to go to work, feels trusted and valued during the day, then returns home feeling fulfilled. This is not a crazy, idealized notion. Today, in many successful organizations, great leaders are creating environments in which people naturally work together to…
