About

Root began publishing the Watercooler® newsletter in the summer of 2006 to help leaders, managers, and individual contributors make meaningful connections to successful strategy execution. It’s designed to help you with the challenges and issues you face in your job every day. This isn't an academic think piece – it’s a practical sharing of innovative ideas and proven methods that work when it comes to strategically engaging people to create business results.

Strategic engagement of people and the creation of better business results requires authenticity, truth-telling, and relevance. We have found that in most organizations the truth is spoken in three places – at the watercooler, in the bathrooms, and in the hallways. These are places where people feel free to say what they really think, where they can share their views and speak the truth. It’s where we begin to take our performance to the next level.

The Watercooler® newsletter is published monthly. Let us know what you would like to hear more about or if there’s a new topic you’d like to read about in an upcoming issue.
