By David Harder on the November, 30, 2019

Coach or Therapist?

By David Harder on the November, 6, 2019

When we launched Inspired Work in 1990, the coaching profession was in its infancy. Today, the coaching industry generates about $2billion in revenue every year.

The Industrial Revolution’s Continued Haunting of Employee Engagement

The America That I Know

By David Harder on the September, 18, 2019

My first book tour turned me into a born-again Angelean. But, when people ask me why I so love our City of Fallen Angels, it isn’t the beaches, shopping, food, or diversity. I love Los Angeles because of the brilliant talent we attract from every corner of the globe.   […]
