“I have OCD — that’s not obsessive compulsive disorder. It’s organization compulsive disorder. I restructure every organization I walk in[to],” says David Ulrich, partner at the RBL Group in Provo, Utah. “I love to study organizations and I love to think about the workplace and how I’d make it better. And I look for ideas. What’s new? What’s fresh?”
Ulrich delivered the closing keynote address of the 2014 Your Workplace Conference, which took place in Toronto. His talk related the importance of the “growth mindset” to business success, on both the individual and corporate level. Ulrich asked conference attendees what they had learned throughout the conference. Responses included the importance of work-life integration as opposed to work-life balance, the value of good nutrition and “me time”, improving productivity and the need for mindfulness.
