About the series

A workplace story of an INPowering life

MARCUS WINN is a newly promoted supervisor in his late twenties who must navigate through a corporate workplace transitioning between competing world views and expectations. As the workplace changes, he must change with it. Marcus learns that sometimes change happens because of our creative involvement.

His experience unfolds through a series of episodes. Each episode highlights specific management and leadership issues told in the context of Marcus’s ongoing personal life events.

Life flows.

Marcus learns that life is not neatly compartmentalized. Work and personal life are integrated into a larger whole. No matter where you go, there you are, and you face each day and each situation with all your life circumstances all the time. As Marcus discovers, leading and managing are a lifestyle, not a job delineated by bullet-point duties. Therefore, his narrative of growing into an INPowering way of living weaves leadership principles into the fabric of experience. Marcus’s lessons come from his environment—not from a menu of how-tos, but from a myriad of what-ifs brimming with possibilities.

NEXT STEPS

Marcus and his friends and family have much to teach us about how to live an INPowering life. While you can learn by reading and reviewing the discussion questions in each episode, you also can learn by having a discussion group to learn from each other’s experiences. 

But wait, there’s more . . . I’m developing a series of courses (I call them gatherings) based on each of the episodes. Stay tuned. We’ll begin with episode one.
