Creating a Thriving Culture

Our Radio Program, Thriving in Business and Life features colleagues, Will Wilkinson and Christopher Harding, as they share insights and valuable techniques from their new book. (Program begins immediately after a short ad from one of our sponsors.)

 

Our ongoing written blog, below, provides a forum for our latest thoughts and for your comments and ideas. Please join us in creating an ongoing conversation about the approaches you've experienced that help create a thriving culture at work, in your community, or at home.

Because we’ve both had near-death experiences, people often ask us the ponderous question, is there life after death?

Well, let’s forget about esoteric musings on reincarnation or resurrection for the moment. We have an even more immediate question. What about life afte...

We’ve all met authentic people who were living their values. Most of them weren’t celebrities. They were ordinary people, like the car valet who loves cars and treats yours as if it were his own; the waitress who is genuinely friendly, loves serving good food, and does...
