AFH 028: Where Does Work Come From? [PODCAST]

Hosts

Ryan Ripley, Don Gray, Tim Ottinger, Brad Rasmussen

Discussion

Ryan Ripley (@ryanripley), Don Gray (@donaldegray), Tim Ottinger (@tottinge), and Brad Rasmussen (@Rass30) got together to discuss “Where does work come from?”. The conversation moved in multiple directions that included theories or work, what motivates people, management theory, and how to introduce agile at large organizations.

This is the kind of podcast that I like to keep a notepad near by while I listen. There are a lot of interesting thoughts and insights from the guests that I hope you find useful. If you do hear something resonates with you, we’d love to hear about it in the comments section! Or you can leave us a voice message here – ASK A QUESTION – that could end up on a future episode.

And then…we called it a night.

  • I suggest work comes from purpose. And rewarding work comes from shared purpose. Money is an attempt to commoditize and scale purpose, but the prevailing forces are primal and thoroughly human.

    Really enjoying the podcast. Full of stimulating thoughts and fresh insights. There’s some kind of knitting together of the culture I feel when listening. Not that we’re all agreeing on everything but we’re banking off each other. The beginning of the end of knowledge work isolation. Rock on.

    • Thanks for the kind words, Bob. And thanks for your thoughts on where work comes from. I tend to agree that purpose is a strong driver and that a shared purpose even stronger.
