Social media has turned the economy upside down. Today, businesses can foster significant value through sheer investment of time and energy. But what does going social really mean?

In this post, you’ll read about going deeper within to engage in real conversations by making ourselves extremely vulnerable. Social media is profoundly impacting how we view work.  I leave you with a few questions to ponder within the post. If you are interested in joining unique conversational spaces on the future of work with inspired thought leaders, let me know by replying to the present post. I am here to help and serve contributing to your unbelievable growth.

Warm blessings,

James Bond Leadership

Allow the human spirit to thrive and flourish to achieve monumental success.” (Click to Tweet) from Johann Gauthier

This post is part of an ongoing James Bond Leadership Series.  The only one of its kind in the world.  The purpose of this series is to convey leadership stories through a James Bond lens.  Please scroll down to the end of the present post for a list of James Bond Leadership blog posts.

Mojave Desert

There wasn’t anything out of the ordinary with the Mojave Desert on that particular day.

A quiet day, if anything, filled with typical dust, wind blowing swirls and striking high level octane heat amidst natural beauty.

Peace, yes, in a desert-like fashion, reminiscent of a certain laissez-faire attitude drawn from effortless flow of being nurtured next to a resonant sea.


The Mojave Desert is part wonder, part dashingly mysterious.  A dry landscape cultivated by million of years of gigantic transformations with wondrous spaces simply waiting to be discovered.

The Vanquish rides the Mojave dust and swirls in wave-like form.  Dryness is somehow lifted by sheer stallion energy comparable to a tsunami reinventing the landscape forever.

The Vanquish is supercharged and delivers cutting-edge epic handling and torque.  The desert peace, clearly, no longer is.

Behind the wheel Bond wears refined black leather gloves, a Tom Ford dark blue falconer suit with orange pale sunglasses along with rich notes of sophisticated wood.

007 notices yellowish pixels dancing in thin air.  A sure sign, from the Vanquish’s fired up dashboard sensors, that Bond’s target is within reach.

007 smiles from the idea of jumping, yet again, into a relentless pursuit.  A feeling of freshness and anticipation, from never having driven through the Mojave’s mysterious maze and wonders, makes him feel whole and in the now.

For a moment there is no pursuit, no Vanquish, no dust unsettled.

Wave Riding Energy

Bond orders a Vesper Martini, his patented drink, in a champagne goblet.

MI6 reports confirm the presence of a secret hideout in the heart of the Mojave Desert.  What is believed to be  the home base of a renowned global energetic network ready to unleash unprecedented greatness out into the universe.

You are to report on duty at 2300 hours, July 14, 2014, to meet a Vanquish in the city of Paradise, Nevada.

Your mission will first consist in locating this secret hideout.

Additional information will be provided to you once this task completed.

Signed by: M, Head, MI6

Bond feels somewhat mesmerized by the lack of clarity of this MI6 memo.

He knows no dwelling and therefore quickly jumps int oVanquish delight.

The car’s silhouette, like his vision, are ready for expansion.

The moon sits sky high while Bond, smack in the middle of the driest land of all, Death Valley, channels wave riding energy.

Future of Work and Workplaces

Outward and inward looking

Many leaders and organizations find themselves in the middle of a Mojave desert, or worse, in a death valley.

Energy is always present, however, no matter how dry the land may be.

Exceptional leaders, like James Bond in Death Valley, access Vanquish warp speed by generating monumental positive emotions.

Those leaders appreciate that, beyond the actual Death Valley, lies a spirit of abundance.

Growing evidence in the field of positive psychology confirms that happiness leads to success.

In other words, happiness is in the now and not something we constantly strive for.

I believe that the more we invest in ourselves, inwardly, the more we are successful outwardly.

When I purchased my BMW 325 convertible I was really thrilled and excited.

I love the feeling of being behind the wheel with so much sparks in my hands and sheer igniting power under the hood.

Driving a  a convertible is a very indulging experience.  A very sexy one I might add!

It brings much joy inside.

When I am not driving, I nurture the wondrous spaces within.

Leadership starts and ends with ourselves.

We can entertain much discussion about reinventing work and global workplaces.

However, change can occur at warp speed in the deadliest valley of all if we channel our spirit and soul into every one of our action.

Most importantly, take the time to build real connections by going deep.

Show interest in others, be grateful and kind.

You will be energized and others will feel special and empowered.

A spirit of collaborative resonance will emerge and flourish.

What if the reinvention of work and global workplaces was a much simpler task than what we are led to believe?

Say thank you, others will care.

Listen with care, others will shine.

Allow others to shine, great endeavours will change the world.

All for now.
