Warm, endearing stories and poems are often not part of an organizational culture. Business war stories of an individual or a team developing a hot product, working outrageous hours to please customers, or blazing new profitable markets are more often the stuff of corporate myths and legends.
What’s different now is that organizations are paying fabulous fees to hear warm, fuzzy and affirming stories of how people can make work more humane – to talk about things of the heart and soul.
Would these stories and approach work in your work place? The folks who brought you the Chicken Soup series of books are doing just that. Jack Canfield and Mark Hansen want to find and reinvigorate the sprit of the workplace by reading warm, compassionate stories to those who survived the continual transformation and downsizing wars.
