I dedicated my last book, The Collaborative Organization, to my fiancée, Blake Landau, who, by the time this book comes out, will be my wife, Blake Morgan. I wouldn't have been able to write this book without her ongoing encouragement and support. Blake spent many hours listening to my ideas, reading through these pages, and pushing me to think differently. Thank you and I love you!
I also owe a huge debt of gratitude to my business partner Connie, who helps run Chess Media Group and has been the primary driving force behind the FOWCommunity (dedicated to the future of work and collaboration) that we launched around the time of this book. She kept steering the business ship and moving us in the right direction. We've worked together for almost five years now and I can't imagine having a better business partner.
I owe a huge debt of gratitude to my family both near (in L.A.) and far (in Melbourne) who are always cheering me on and are always excited for me.
My dad David, my mom Ella, and my brother Josh, I love you all very much; thank you all of your encouragement and support.
I'd also like to thank Wiley for being great to work with and for giving me the opportunity to share my ideas around the future of work.
There have also been numerous people who I spoke with and interviewed for this book, my apologies if I forgot anyone. Thank you to Chris Hummel for your support and your time; I'm privileged to know you. Thank you to Dr. John Kotter, your work has inspired ...
