The Spaghetti Project: Good Things Really Do Happen When People Connect
Then we should keep connecting good people!
As I was researching the impact of technology on relationships over the last few years, I uncovered a study on firemen by Kevin Knifflin out of Cornell University. The studies showed that firemen who eat together are better at their jobs. I always knew investing in and honoring relationships was a good thing. Now, thanks to Professor Knifflin there’s science behind it. And it saves lives!
So as a hats off to the firemen and their favorite firehouse meal, I launched the Spaghetti Project—a research project focused on identifying how smart companies bring people together, as well as a series of homespun huddles where I create a space for folks to hang out, connect, and explore different themes.
Why? Because left to our own devices, (excuse the pun) we just aren’t connecting.
