Do you know how aligned your company is with the Millennial Generation?
June 30, 2016
We have partnered with the online survey company QuestionPro to create a quick and powerful survey you can run with your employees that will give you detailed metrics on how aligned you are with the 4 capacities identified in When Millennials Take Over (digital, clear, fluid, and fast).
The future of work starts right here, right now. Our manifesto is about the future of work in a post-Cluetrain world; an emerging ideology of business where people are at the center of a complex eco-system, as opposed to being boxed into a mechanical one.
Which Parts of Your Culture Are Moving in the Wrong Direction
June 24, 2016
Your culture is complex and has a lot of moving parts. Since most cultures evolved "by default" rather than by design, you end up with very specific elements of your culture that actually distract you from what drives success. When you know your culture's genetic code, you can fix that.
Culture is not about good or bad. It's about who you are and who you could be. And it's an evolution that takes time, intention, and effort. But you have to be willing to put one foot in front of the other. And there are some really simple, tried, and truly tested things to start with.
Purpose and Passion: Why your “true calling” doesn’t have to be just one thing
June 12, 2016
For years I thought that in order for my work to really matter it had to be my passion. Or, I had to work for an organization with meaningful philanthropic mission, or simply have work that allowed me to directly make some sort of epic difference in the world.
