In his widely acclaimed new book, The Business Romantic, Tim Leberecht argues that we are moving from a smart age to a new romantic era in which only organisations comfortable with ambiguity and emotion will thrive. In light of a data-driven algorithmic society in which everything is quantified, automated, and predictable, he suggests we find meaning through mystery, friction, and the beauty of the unexpected. Drawing from art and philosophy, he wants us to reclaim romance as the ultimate differentiator, the ultimate humanizer in a world of maximizers and optimizers. Tim illustrates his argument with examples that include hermits and secret societies, talking to strangers, and “Thick Days.” He presents three “Rules of Enchantment” that will help you design more romantic organisations and experiences and lead more romantic lives.
