As a serial entrepreneur, the one consistent theme of my career has been the spectacular teams I’ve worked with and worked for (more on a management philosophy at some other time). You know who you are. And it’s likely we’ve met, and you know who I am (I’ve interviewed tens of thousands, I’ve worked with thousands, and have managed close to 40 different teams over the 28 years), but if not I’ve posted a brief bio for you to chew on*.
But, to be clear, this blog is about people as the products (sounds unemotional but truly not). YOU are important, dynamic, and super rich with opportunity and challenges. And never before has it been more difficult to navigate your ‘work – life’ (note there is no word ‘balance’ in that phrase). And just think it’s 50% of your waking day (actually more than 50% but who’s counting).
So, here’s a place where we can talk ‘flow’, mindfulness, success, productivity, career, and ‘work-life’. Did i forget the ‘science of happiness’. It’s part social science and part data science. It’s original thoughts and celebration of other’s work. I just relish in the conversation.
Let’s jump in. The water is fine.
