The four main tenets of life, 'Sex, Money, Happiness and Death' are explored in this unique new book that examines the interface between psychology and management. Life is not all about the symbols of power and position, status is an elusive entity, popularity an accident, wealth very fickle; what is truly important has to do with meaningful relationships, making a difference and creating meaning. Based on his experiences as a psychoanalyst, professor and leadership coach, the author addresses these issues and their effect on work and life in general, giving advice on how to deal with the challenges that executives, or for that matter, most people struggle with.
