Can serious business be joyful or is it really mandatory that it be a tough slog?
As an executive and manager at Hewlett Packard, Agilent, Varian and Thermo Fisher Scientific I have seen that with certain kinds of individual and collective intensity, any business goal can be exceeded, and major disadvantages can be overcome. The difference between organizations whose people and teams have this emotional engagement and those that don’t is huge and it is measured in dollars and individual fulfillment — or a regretable lack of both.
Knowing that, I couldn’t not make time to share ideas and tools that I see make exceptional leaders and teams.
