 I’m active in the following organizations, and encourage you to check them out:

  • Certified B Corp: A global movement with the core premise of “business as a force for good.” I have been involved with this community since 2011, and was the fifth Certified B Corp in Vermont (out of 43). You’ll recognize a lot of familiar names here – Patagonia, Ben & Jerry’s, Eileen Fisher, etc.  
  • 1% for the Planet: Started by Yvon Chouinard, the Founder of Patagonia on the basic belief that the environment needs our contributions to preserve and protect our precious Earth.

Books & Articles

I do consider myself fortunate to be a writer, and have written and published two books and numerous articles.  The most recent is Balanced Effectiveness at Work: How to Enjoy the Fruits of Your Labor without Driving Yourself Nuts. 2014, Starr Farm Press. It’s available at your local independent bookstore. I’m proud that some significant thought leaders endorsed this book, including Marshall Goldsmith, Mark Albion, and Shainoor Khoja, as well as twenty-four others.

Flip’s Tips

Flip’s Tips is a series of tips derived from my book, Balanced Effectiveness At Work: How to Enjoy the Fruits of Your Labor without Driving Yourself Nuts. 

In this series, I outline a potential workplace problem or description of a situation, a way to look inside and ask questions of yourself (your frank self-assessment), and my suggestions about how to initiate a change process in this area (Flip’s Tips).
