  • I bet you know what I’m talking about. It’s almost like those of us that are in the know have a secret wink. So why is the rest of the corporate world so resistant?
  • The fact is that many people are choosing to take control of their own destiny even if they’ve been working for the same employer for years
  • One of things that you often miss is is what we often call the Water Cooler Moment. Those chance meetings, the value add to being part of a team. If we help poeopleby providing those moments we are onto something.

  • After all, there’s no reason why you need to give up your right to indepennce and control in order to be part of a team. It’s just a different model.
