The New Buzz About Business and CSR

Key business lessons can come from unlikely places. One man found them by spending six years on a bench in his back yard.

Michael O'Malley, Ph.D. says that beehives are the "original sustainable enterprises" that go back millennia, and they have a lot to teach us. Based on his observations of a bee hive in his back yard, O'Malley wrote a book, "The Wisdom of the Bees," to share 25 lessons on "what the hive can teach business about leadership, efficiency, and growth."
