Organizations can lack soul. There can be such a technical, "outer" language at work that we can lose connection with each other and with meaningful communication. In sharp contrast, we may speak an intimate soul language with close friends which creates intimacy and vulnerability.

In Organisations with Soul, Adriaan Bekman invites us to re-imagine organizations with soul, so as to enrich everyday working life. Paying attention to meaningful soul language can transform relationships in our communities and workplaces.
