The Driven Organization Team:

We are an organization founded with the specific purpose of transforming our places of work, from a focus of "generating profits above all else" to a focus on using work as a way of helping workers succeed, have a great time, be truly free, and achieve their entire potential. Since the standard way of conducting business doesn't work for us, we need the experiences and tools developed by many folks like yourself in order for us to learn and have significant impact in our organizations. You are part of the team, and you are expected to take ownership and advance this effort too. Your other friends at DrivenOrganization.com will be there along your side.
