Failure means you're trying. Maybe it didn't work out; maybe it won't work out. Good faith and effort was or will be there. You'll inevitably learn something along the way.

Employees aren't resources. They're precious resources, and that's why employees are the company.

Systems are strategic entities. People can operate within them for the purpose of facilitating processes and procedures. More fundamentally, people cooperate in teams. It's when we errantly swap the two that we sacrifice the viability of strategy, and the humanity of those who make organizations go.

In the way I've thought about them here, path dependencies make for interesting diagnostic and prescriptive tools. They may also describe scenarios in which culture is either/both a strength or a weakness that must be acknowledged. Operationally, perceiving strategy through the lens of path dependency may result is some creative, cost-effective, and efficient solutions to hard problems.

Of course, not everyone likes in-depth analysis; however, what affects one at work has personal meaning to that individual. My work journal became more than a daily review. It was something altogether different, something more.

Mentorship is an important development method both for the mentee and the mentor. Desired results are growth, path development and high performance. For me, there's a gratification in sharing alongside an urgency to develop myself to meet need.

The employee life cycle overlaps with workforce planning strategy—from recruitment to departure; yes, through until the employee leaves—and plays a crucial part of the promise and potential of an organization’s design - and by derivation its people.

It may logically be said that organization design comes down to a compilation of people, not simply roles.

When working dynamics seem off, we tend to appreciate them in a conjectural manner. I love how Brian J. Robertson puts it: “The human capacity to sense dissonance in the present moment and see the potential for change…” Typically, we identify activities or performance for deficiency, because those are the effects over which someone must have control, right?! (Sadly, we'll even point the finger.)

We think of our purpose as a target to shoot for. That’s only half right. In fact purpose is BOTH the projectile and target, together. For individuals, purpose starts with personal ambition. The way to see purpose through to one’s goal, one can scale-up. Let’s explore what all of this means.
