Fred Kofman's approach to leadership has little to do with the standard practices taught in business school and traditional books. Bringing together economics and business theroy, communications and conflict resolution, family counseling and mindfulness mediation, Kofman argues in The Meaning Revolution that our most deep-seated, unspoken and universal anxiety stems from our fear that our life is being wasted - that the end of life will overtake us when our song is still unsung. Material incentives - salary and benefits - account for perhaps 15% of employees' motivation at work.

A dyslexics nightmare, heavily accented reader

I'm severely dyslexic, audiobooks and being able to listen at high speeds are an absolute savior. The author narrates his own book and has a heavy Latin accent which creates a much higher barrier for aural understanding especially at higher speeds. This is a huge disappointment for me. I appreciate the author providing the voice for his own audiobook, but it's the opposite of the cognitive aide I was hoping for.
