My partner Jen Margolis and I are defining what it means to do deep work with organizations. It means building community in organizations. When we redesign workplaces as communities, every manner of organizational good happens. People enjoy a sense of significance. The more clear we are on our significance, the more we feel a sense of belonging together in our world. Innovation thrives. Deep work leads to more courage and creativity, focus and flourishing.
Our passion for building organization as community is grounded in a dream to help create a thriving planet. People thrive when their communities thrive. When we build capacity for community in organizations, we believe that it makes it more possible for people to help build all of the communities they belong to including their communities of place, interest, faith and civic engagement. Yes, this is a big dream worthy of our gifts and efforts.
