Episode 046: Seasons and The New Definition of Winning

Welcome to the first-ever AEC Industry Podstorm! – 21 straight days of podcast episodes designed to get you and your team positioned for greater success in 2021 and beyond!  

Thank you for tuning in… and please don’t hesitate to share this episode and series with your friends, colleagues, partners, and peers! 

In contrast to our more normal interview-dialogue format, these “Podstorm” episodes are presented in shorter, more-manageable, but just as powerful chunks of focused content designed to help you take action!


Seasons and The New Definition of Winning

Today’s episode focuses on how we can better engage our employees and align their goals, interests, and passions with those of our organization in order to improve our likelihood of success.


“To be successful today and moving forward, we need to develop a mindset around ‘seasons’ – individually and as a leader and manager in terms of Work and Life, and organizationally around Growth and Development… and be very much in-tune with the fact that winning has been redefined.” 

–Peter C. Atherton, PE


“Today, virtually all talent wants to win at both work and life and if we force a choice, one way or another, people are choosing life at the expense of work; when we understand this, employee engagement becomes much easier.”

–Peter C. Atherton, PE
