If you are looking at this, 'About us' likely includes you.
WiserAtWork (W@W) is made up of Subscribers, Faculty and Thought Leaders from around the world, people - like you - who are interested in how to unleash the human spirit at work, starting with our own.
Think of W@W as an international 'community of practice' helping each other be smarter with the human factor at work, solving 'people problems', resolving conflict, and creating businesses and organizations that work for everyone involved.
W@W is the brainchild of Dr John J. Scherer. If you are reading this, you have probably been in one of his workshops, keynotes or Executive or Leadership Development Intensives, and that may be why you are checking this out. (Click here for John's vita.)
John is currently serving as the main source of the material being made available on the W@W site. It all started several years ago when one of his close colleagues spent a week going through his office files and told him, 'John, you HAVE to get this stuff out there! This is a gold mine of material that could help people wrestling with problems at work! Your audios, videos, PowerPoint slides, Client Proposals, correspondence. What a lot of practical treasure...' John then contacted a few close friends, clients and colleagues, all of whom said, 'Go for it!'
Committed with John to making online solutions available to an international group of fresh thinkers leading change. Click Next to see the whole group.
