Odyssey: The Life and Career of a Senior Consultant
Greg Bevan and James G. Clawson
University of Virginia, USA
Volume 5: 2012, pp. 59-72; ABSTRACT
An American with a degree in business and Asian Studies becomes a general partner of a global consulting firm in Japan. Shortly thereafter, he is promoted to an office in Washington, D.C., and decides to make a solo bicycle ride from Seattle to Washington in order to take a break from his work and do some reflection. His thoughts while riding across the US provide deep and provocative insights into modern, global executives and the challenges they and their families face.
