The Impact Investor:Lessons in Leadership and Strategy for Collaborative Capitalism Cathy Clark, Jed Emerson, Ben Thornley
What if your customers had a vested interest in guiding your company toward greater success? What if your employees had a personal as well as professional commitment to elevating your organization? Imagine how different your results would be if investors, vendors, and even analysts treasured the relationships they have built with you. Most important...is your company capable of setting aside a bit of its own self-interest to become part of dramatically more rewarding collaborative effort? That´s the provocative and ultimately earthshaking question David Nour poses. He argues that co-creation is a transformational journey that naturally leads to growth and evolution...because it gives birth to shared interests that dwarf anything that existed previously. In Co-Create, David Nour makes the case that co-creation leads to Market Gravity™, a force that attracts stakeholders to your business because they recognize that many others have also united their interests with yours. It´s the sense - backed by tangible metrics - that this is bigger than any of us imagined...except that you imagined precisely such an outcome. That´s the power of co-creation. 1. Language: English.
