Quote on Work and Meaning

“…when people go to work, they want to be a part of something bigger than themselves. And if they don’t feel that way, they begin to shut down and their work product diminishes.”

-Asa James Swan, Chief Leadership Officer of the Commonwealth of Kentucky paraphrasing Marcus Buckingham
