Terrific funny video I found. It’s a Steelcase promotional video making fun of the office environment. It’s relevant to some of the changes that are coming our way through the use of more social business collaboration tools. They’re doing some interesting work in “The Connected Workplace.” Love to hear some thoughts and comments!
Faith Popcorn was right about some things, the cocooning of America wasn’t one of them. Her popular book, The Popcorn Report predicted that we would be hermits in our homes with our food delivered and our media on demand. The social media and social networking capabilities of the internet have come out of the early adoption phase. Guess what? We’re gathering differently. We’re connecting more. Our relationships get real faster.
We’re proud to be associated with such a powerful message. Who’s got your back is not just some new flavor of the month self-help book.

And, together, we’re determined to change – fast. We welcome advice and participation.
The University of Phoenix has agreed to sponsor a “Who’s Got Your Back,” Road Show. I’ had never heard of something like this – but as a “giveback” to his followers and fans, Keith is delivering his 9-step program for building the ultimate team-based success strategy, complimentary to the public. Take a look at this video of Keith’s explanation of what he and book are offering:
