  1. Great post Ken and I coulnd’t agree more about how great consulting is. I also really like the variety vs. the slog. In my past, the work always felt like the “same thing, different day” syndrome with little passion over time. In consulting there is always a new challenge, different client needs, and a way to re-engage excitement or apply my knowledge. In other words, something new all the time that engages my interests and energizes me!

  2. I work with a lot of companies worldwide as well as in the Silicon Valley, and I can tell you that suffering reflected in the employee engagement stats are FOR REAL. People are miserable. Some people have given up making a difference and just settle for making a living. Many people dream of leaving their company and joining a workplace that is life-affirming. Thank you for this reminder that an attractive and supporting company culture is a magnet for terrific people and a true source of competitive advantage!

  3. I concur. Having the ability to make an impact in a variety of organizations and work in what things you need as a person is very fulfilling and I think “micro work” will become a big thing as our economy changes.

  4. So true about “corporate growth at any expense”. In my big companies’ jobs, the CEO and general managers were so focused on quarter-to-quarter revenue that initiatives were biased for short-term profits at the expense of long term customer-oriented initiatives.
