4-  Interesting Finds: Things that we think are worth sharing with you...
 
 On June 12th, we held an evening WEIRD meetup in  ... 
 
There were numerous topics that were discussed, which boiled down to a handful of key questions. We can group them into two categories:

Questioning the ‘Old Corporate World’ (recognising its faults/limitations); and

 What can I do to start the Journey??

 
We ended the session with a task for each member. Go away and ask the questions no one is asking – or for those in larger organisations to help create an environment/culture where experimentation is encouraged. 
 
The intent is that each person reports back with their experiences at the next event.
Charles then travelled to  where he met two other WEIRDOs: Sandra, the WEIRD Psychologist and Haris, the WEIRD Philosopher. They presented   book and the mindset behind it to the Entrepreneurial Business Book Club

Bonjour !
Since last month, I have written four new articles that are available in both the   site and in   :

Partnering with Employees to Uncover MotivationEach entrepreneur dreams of empowered employees that are happy at work. Here you can find some common issues that keep employees demotivated and mechanisms to revert the situation.
