Scott: Thanks for your reply! Talking about books, have you read Chris Reimer's book, Happywork: A Business Parable About the Journey to Teamwork, Profit, and Purpose?

I have not, Martin. But I have read (and still use) Patrick Lencioni's Five Dysfunctions of a Team as well as his field guide on the topic. Is Happywork similar?

Do you know about other organizations that have invested in continuous learning and personal development, like Zappos?

I would imagine there are, however, the only other company that comes to mind is Google. Otherwise, many companies have continuous learning programs tied to universities, but usually they are professional skill development courses. I've never come across another corporation that has an in-house life coach, for example.

Yes, I thought that was great too. Plus, it's not a "lending" library. They stock cases of the books and offer it to their employees to keep!
