Corporations are and will remain the dominant mechanism for organizing our society.

So, it occurred to me that if I could come up with something that furthered their aims … help them make more profit, deepen relationships with customers, and create a culture of high-performing teams … this would also speed the broader diffusion of Gratitude.
