Two Blogs for the Price of One
That is, absolutely free of charge. Not a bad deal. I began my blog at forbes.com, How Work Works, on Wednesday, and I invite you to take a look. It will be less free-form than this one (where I talk about pretty much whatever strikes my fancy).
I actually established my intended turf in my first post. I talked about my belief that work should and can be both productive and fun – and my related belief that doing good work and having a good time are what most people want from their jobs. I set a goal of focusing on making work what we want it to be.
I’d love to have you be a part of that conversation, if that sounds interesting to you: let’s share things at work and in business that we observe are working well, and think about how we can help those things spread. And let’s talk about things that aren’t working so well, and how we might be able to fix them.
In the spirit of that, my second post was about Groupon – a company that seems to be doing well on a how bunch of levels: building a “tribe” of highly engaged employees who are providing a useful service in a simple way that benefits consumers, businesses and groupon. Not just win-win: win-win-win!
