When our younger daughter came home from college one year she gave me a coffee mug as a present. The motto on the coffee mug read: “Life isn’t about finding yourself.

Having received zero training in meaning-making, having never heard the phrase, billions of people worldwide move from commute to drudgery to commute to dinner and a few drinks, relentlessly shut down and fairly empty-headed, not because they don’t have a brain, a heart, and other life-saving equipment but because they are completely unschooled in the [...]

Tens of millions of Americans like you—thoughtful, sensitive, book-reading Americans who bought and read Sam Harris’s The End of Faith, Daniel Dennett’s Breaking the Spell, Christopher Hitchens’ God is Not Great and Richard Dawkins’ The God Delusion, and who keep books like Viktor Frankl’s Man’s Search for Meaning a perennial bestseller—are looking for a coherent [...]

Being A Good Customer Is Good For Your Own Work
Now that I’m out of the non-profit world and in the corporate world, I’m more conscious of public perception of companies. In particular, the perceptions of the bloggerati who can sometimes be unforgiving in their attitudes. As a customer, I will openly admit that I’ve grown less patient with companies over the years. If I […]

Connecting To Work That Matters
As I wrap up for this Monday evening, I keep coming back to an idea that is fairly simple, yet ever so easy for managers to forget. It’s the idea of matter. No, not dark matter hanging out in the cosmos or grey matter hanging out between our ears. It’s the idea that employees want […]
