People You Should Meet: Tony Schwartz

I have someone I'd like you to meet.
I have someone I’d like you to meet.

I came across Tony Schwartz and his company, The Energy Project, a while ago, but have recently renewed my interest in his work. I think he’s doing important things and speaking some serious truth into the upper echelons of U.S. industry. The Energy Project offers compelling business cases that demonstrate just how harmful our “hamster wheel” workplace tendencies are, and Schwartz writes about them in a way that’s widely accessible. A former journalist, he writes about the way we work on his blog. To get you started, here are 3 of my favorite posts:

Humanity as a Competitive Advantage

Struggling to Disconnect from our Digital Lives

Escalating Demands at Work Hurt Employees and Companies

I’ve also ordered his book, The Way We’re Working Isn’t Working: The Four Forgotten Needs That Energize Great Performance and am really looking forward to reading it.
