A professional that works in an organization and due to his/her skills and contributions holds a proportion of its value. In the old days, these people used to be called employees. The latest hard-nosed data confirms that 85% of employees around the world are disengaged and unhappy with their jobs.
THE VALUEHOLDER aims to dignify the employee. This book invites disengaged and unfulfilled employees to get up and get moving on their transformation into professionals that create, deliver and hold value for themselves, shareholders, and society at large. Shareholders hold shares, but it is valueholders who hold the value that drives those shares. This individual transformation could help billions of people to lead a more purpose-driven life. At the same time, that would boost productivity after decades in which low performance has held back economic progress.
