The Accordion Player 

Seeing every challenge as an opportunity for growth, Dr. Ichak Adizes moved beyond a childhood marked by imprisonment in a Nazi concentration camp and immigration to an unfamiliar country to discover the benefits of opening his heart. Rejecting isolation and fear, he became a renowned thought leader who advises companies and governments worldwide on structuring thriving organizations around a culture of trust and respect.

Dr. Adizes’ personal story is more than a string of external events that propelled him through adversity after adversity to become the insightful, compassionate person he is today. It is also a map of his journey into a heart which, like the accordion that he played to earn a living and put himself through school, ultimately expanded and opened up to the universal truths that connect us all in our humanity.

The Accordion Player 
is a compelling account of a remarkable life—an unvarnished view of a man whose decision to recognize the value of change and creative conflict allowed him to love. His story reveals the enduring human ability to turn possibility into reality.


What Matters In Life

Imagine a world of relationships in which we are respected for being different. We are free to embrace diversity. We accept each other’s differences because we learn from them. In What Matters in Life, Dr. Ichak Adizes, a Holocaust survivor and an internationally recognized expert in managing change, illustrates how to build a foundation for a happier life and stronger relationships. This is your guidebook for uplifting, life-affirming experiences.
