Prostitutes, the Andes, and Japanese Sword Makers.
A talk on the importance of mentorship, friendships, and strangers.
We live in a world obsessed with the 'I' so much so that we cannot even spell WII without two I's. We need to re-connect to run sustainable businesses where knowledge is not hoarded but shared, we need to re-kindle friendships to simply be healthier human beings.
In this talk, featured at TEDx Soweto, Pierre offers a new framework to guide us to form 4 types of relationship necessary for us to move forward as companies, and simply just as human beings.
We are not born as individuals, we were born as part of a community, a tribe, a nation. Each of us carry a scar with us on our stomach's that tells of our connection, once, to the rest of humanity.
Connected people are happier and more productive. Connected companies are more resilient.

"The true power of this talk is in how it touches on the simple yet poorly understood - or personal yet most potent - aspect of our being...managing the self"
