Let’s go.

I'm a Detroiter who happens to enjoy writing, national parks, orange juice, the performing arts, and fanciful socks. More than anything though, I aspire to be a good husband, father, and citizen.

My dream project

Imagine this.

An online MOOC for everyone in Southeast Michigan who wants to take it. The class teaches some basics about managment that damn near everyone is bad at - running a meeting, giving feedback to employees, setting a clear goal and priority for a team, organizing yourself, and maybe a few others. I’m seriously talking basics.

For anyone who wants to, there could be peer-to-peer discussion groups, in the flesh.

The goal is simple - make the middle management of every company in the region, big or small, 1%-5% better.

I dream about what such an approach could do - create more jobs and profitability. Make people less frustrated about the number one demotivator at work - bad management. Build relationships that lead to new opportunities across industries.

There are lots of initiatives to support entrepreneurs, I think it would be interesting to try making existing firms more effective. And I honestly think that working on the basics of managment is more than enough to make a huge difference.
