Rick Gage - Since June 2020 I’ve been holding the question “what is the invitation of these times?” The answer that has emerged for me is “Connectedness”. For more than a decade now Compassion & Mindfulness @ Work have been my professional passions.
There is just too much suffering in the workplace. It takes a massive toll on employees and their families. And the cost of lost opportunities for companies and organizations is huge. And there is tremendous upside for organizations that pay attention to community engagement, agency for every participant, stewardship of resources, and the fabric of workplace culture.
For most of my career I was a line manager in sales and consulting organizations within very large companies serving large organization clients. OD was something I lived but not something I formally studied. Now, it is my privilege as a facilitator, coach and consultant to work with high impact organizations on engagement, leadership, team connectedness and organization culture.
Beyond my work and professional passions, my family – particularly seven grandchildren are the beating heart of my life. They are my teachers.
