I am delighted to be collaborating with Responsive.Org in a series of webinars in which I will be interviewing innovators and leaders of organizations redefining the workplace. Not only technologically, but conceptualizing work as opportunities for people to not only grow professionally, but collectively and spiritually. We kicked off the series with Brian Haney of Google who discussed their brief foray into Holocracy, along with his perspective of how companies stay fresh as the world changes around it.

Join as Glenn Marks, PhD, MBA and Jennifer discuss evolving trends in creating truly inclusive holistic workplaces. Among topics discussed:
