My 10 principles for designing organizations are now on Huffington Post. Please leave a comment on the article and share with friends. Thank you!
Organizational culture can and should be designed to avoid tragedy, mitigate risk and effectively serve both customers and employees. Leadership is not a monologue, it's a conversation....

Nice write-up! I agree — any place where you can feel an immediate connection to people should be valued for what it is. I love it when I get immediate feedback on email (or on any channel) too!

I took the course about ten years ago, and chiefly took it so I could be a better coach to my direct reports, and to increase my empathy skills.  I've never practiced as a coach, beyond what I needed to do in order to complete the course.  

I liked how CTI got me up and running immediately, but New Ventures West is a much deeper program. More academic, more intellectual - which is both its strength and weakness, I think...
