David Whyte : Born in Yorkshire, of Irish descent, David Whyte is a marine biologist, NGO worker, turned poet who writes about our relationship with work
He is a little guarded about his poetry but you can find
odd snippets on the web. If you haven’t encountered his work, I recommend you buy his CD, Midlife and the Great Unknown.
I’ve added a link to his wide range of works on Amazon and listed other posts on this blog related to his work.

UPDATE: I’m happy to add some downloads here linking the poetry, particularly of David Whyte, to contemporary management. Removed.
I am currently reading The Heart Aroused. I really recommend it as a an overview of modern views on management. If you mean to get into positive organizational scholarship or positive psychology or the Edge Economy and networked competing supply chains, crowd-sourced solutions and cognitive surplus, you need to read this book.
