RIP Geary Rummler and Studs Terkel

Two greats have passed from our midst.

Geary Rummler - When I first entered the Training and Development field, one of the thought leaders I encountered was Geary Rummler whose ideas about organizational performance have influenced me ever since.

There is a beautiful blog entry by Guy Wallace here.

Studs Terkel - The author of the book Working, where the voices of American workers from all walks of life can be heard (and later in the musical play "Working").

Here is a beautiful piece about his life and influence.

David Zinger brilliantly connects the dots between Terkel and employee engagement.
