I am committed to improving productivity by reducing discontent through improving work and the workplace.

Working people spend most of their waking life in the workplace; therefore, improving satisfaction at work contributes significantly to Improving satisfaction with life. While there will always be intrinsic travails, many avoidable ones are created also.

I believe poor decisions are the root cause of most avoidable travails. Thus, to make the workplace better we must understand how the sequence of decisions were made that got us to now. Progress begins with "thinking about thinking" to understand holistically how of how culture, identity, personality and collaborative approach combine to improve or diminish our effectiveness as decision makers.

Better decisions lead to better work, better work leads to more achievement, more achievement leads to more satisfaction--and more profitable business.
