Jason Fried: Why work doesn't happen at work | Video on TED.com
This doesn't relate to my "field" of business and isn't practical for the retail business model. This is more of a shout out to those white collar readers not so much as a demand to listen but rather a request to at least watch. Having been a manager myself in a prior job I found the ideas contained in this talk very interesting and provocative as I lined it up with my own experiences managing a group of people.
If you've never heard of TED Talks, check out the site. There is a collection of amazingly creative, artistic, intelligent, and Tony Stark level innovating talks. Best of all you don't have to be Iron Man to afford checking it out. It's all free.
P.S. Thank you for the over whelming comments and responses from my last post. I'm glad to see that people identify with what I wrote and shared their own experience with others. Having read many many comments in the last month it was a pleasant change to see people interacting with an idea or opinion. Thanks.
