The constant cascade of new technologies and social changes are creating a more empowered population. Workforces are increasingly dispersed, demanding of self-expression, and quite possibly disengaged. Within this topsy-turvy context, leaders must spark creativity, drive innovation, and ensure sustainability.

Using real-life practical experiences, serial entrepreneur and thought leader Faisal Hoque with journalist Drake Baer, defines a personal and professional playbook that shows how to:

  • Holistically connect the when and what with who you are
  • Inspire and lead inside and outside of your organization
  • Generate ideas, grounded decisions, and long-burning value

Part philosophy, part business, and part history, in Everything Connects, you’ll learn from the wisdom of 2500 year old Eastern philosophies and the interconnected insights of Leonardo da Vinci. Couple that with Fortune 100 corporate cross pollination for creativity and startup thinking for how to adapt with ease, and you have Everything Connects. This isn’t just a quick fix for your next financial quarter; this is how you succeed in the long run.

It is your step-by-step guide for working with yourself and others.
