Walk into any office in America and there's a good chance 5 in 10 people (or more) don't know the project objective of their work. How?

Most companies are not very good at engagement marketing, and there's a logical reason why: an over-focus on trackable KPIs.

The "motivational posters" culture of most orgs -- slap something on a wall, hope it sticks -- is a horrible way to drive growth.

A list of communication skills for an executive? "Make more money and don't send dick pictures." That's not ideal. Can we improve?

Tagline
I write a lot at "The Context Of Things" blog. I live in Texas (again). I'm interested by a ton of different things.
