MHello. Thanks for visiting.

My name is Dan Pontefract, author of FLAT ARMY: Creating a Connected and Engaged Organization. I’m also Chief Envisioner of TELUS Transformation Office¬†where I get to help organizations and leaders improve employee engagement, leadership development and organizational culture.

I often wonder why an organization, whether for profit, not-for-profit, academic or otherwise can’t be the coolest place to work.

Why can’t an organization of any size become a mecca of collaboration; a culture that fosters innovation, creativity, teamwork and friendship.

To truly create a collaborative and engaged culture, I believe organizations need to lead differently. They need better collaboration practices, connected leadership, new learning models and social tools to improve innovation, teamwork, employee engagement and of course … business results.

My motto is:

we’re not here to see through each other;

we’re here to see each other through.

I hope you enjoy your time here.
