Connecting at Work: A New Conversation

An interview with Peter Block

"Our job is to overcome a workplace culture of isolation, fear, and waiting for leaders to get their act together. We can do that when we shift the conversation from problem-solving to possibility; gaps to gifts; and blame and barter to ownership and commitment."
