The purpose of this website is to share information and opinion about the world of work, and the people in the world of work, so we can be effective and efficient and get to a better place. This website is under construction, and we will continue to build the site, so please return from time-to-time to see what is new.
In the meantime, please visit From Where I Sit and read about my position on what it takes to be politically savvy in the workplace
