The latest ideas on organization life, personal collaboration and the politics of work from practitioners around the globe are collected here so you may become more effective, perhaps even more satisfied, in career.
Every week our theme emerges organically and this week its about renewal and reflection and being choiceful about the path we’re on. These fine authors offer fresh and different perspectives on the intersection of life and work.
