What a feeling of sadness when you discover a great man, a great thinker, only to learn he died some years ago.

Even worse, when he was born the same year as you, has a degree in Physics like you but died at the young age of 55 from a brain haemorrhage.

Watch Sumantra Ghoshal talk at a past World Economic Forum about The smell of the place.

And listen to the story he tells starting at about 1.07 and his metaphor that "Most companies particularly large companies have created downtown Calcutta in summer inside themselves"

The message - don't try to change the person but the context in which they work.
