Books change lives! As a celebration of International Women’s Day 2022 we will share books written by women authors.
Our long term vision for The Sikh Chamber of Commerce is to become the worlds biggest ethics & values based business and social network. So we could not think of a better way to kick off the series than with the International Best Seller and a Winner of the 2020 Nautilus Book Award - The Values Compass, written by Dr. Mandeep Kaur Rai.
Every day we make decisions based on what we believe in: values that define the ambitions we set, the choices we make, and the relationships we choose. In TheValues Compass, Dr. Mandeep Rai shows how the countries of the world epitomize the power of values, provide an ideal guide to help us understand our own, and teach us important lessons about success.
From Moroccan compromise to Armenian survival and American entrepreneurship, The Values Compass shows how we can incorporate the values that animate nations into our own lives—seeing ourselves through the eyes of the world, and shedding new light on the opportunities and challenges that define us. The result is an insightful and readable collection that helps us reflect on the values that matter most, last longest, and have the greatest power to create change.
“The Values Compass takes us into the hearts, minds, and traditions of the cultures and people of the world. It demonstrates how interconnected we are and how the divisions that exist between us stem from acting with narrow self-interest rather than concern for the good of our human family. I hope that the book will contribute to making our world a happier place.” —THE DALAI LAMA
Dr Rai began her career in private banking at JPMorgan, and later worked for the United Nations, the European Commission, and grassroots NGOs before setting up the UAE’s first media venture capital fund.
Mandeep studied philosophy, politics, and economics (PPE), has an MSc in International Development from the London School of Economics, and completed an MBA at London Business School, with a year at Harvard Business School and MIT. She also holds a PhD in global values.
