Wired to Care

Patnaik asserts that companies who care about their people and about the world around them reap both economic benefits and personal rewards. Using research gathered by examining companies from large to small, Patnaik shows how widespread empathy helps individuals connect with other people, feel comfortable taking risks, and have the courage to stick with ideas that they feel passionate about even if they don't take off right away. Patnaik also believes that an empathetic approach just might help you to have a better day at work.
