    Love this! Especially “the societal trap of soulless success..”

      Thanks much, Angie! We must share a common love of alliteration!

    I like this post Jane for it poses the question why don’t people jump in and help, offer their insights, and connect?

    I think you and Daniel target some possible answers. Perhaps we should add — afraid of how someone else will react to unsolicited guidance/help.

    I will “noodle” on this some more. I like this question!

      Kate – thanks for stop by and sharing! Your addition of fear to the list is a great one. You might enjoy this talk by Dr. Brene Brown on that very topic! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X4Qm9cGRub0

    The problem with “We want to trust and be trusted” is that too often Product Marketing , or just Marketing, controls the message. Why is this a problem? There is often a delta, sometime a significant one, between the marketing myth and the engineering reality of products. The same applies to services. The expression “Once bitten, twice shy” comes to mind.

      LeRoy – you are so right about the chasms between various operating units of an organization. I’ve seen companies where it appears that the operating units work for separate organizations instead of seamlessly working together. Thanks much for sharing!
