Since completing my PhD in January of 2016, I have been sharing my findings through various speaking engagements and events. I had not intended to post the slide deck as I work on the book, BE-ing@Work, that includes the findings. The continued research has proven to expand the topic wide enough that it seems worthwhile to share my dissertation study with my network. BE-ing@Work in this context is about seeking innovative interventions that enable people to bring their best selves to work. It takes into account challenges in user experience, design, culture, engagement, wellness and chronic illness, and the multidimensional aspects of life and work.
I have been collecting people’s stories over the past year about managing and thriving despite or because of stress, chronic illness, leadership, social, technology, family and life in general. I am inspired by the possibilities and opportunity to develop new solutions and systems that will enable individuals and organizations to thrive. If you have a story to share, please do not hesitate to reach out.

Apps and devices help them listen
