What we read on our job descriptions and what we encounter in the actual workplace are two very different things. This is the double-reality of work and it has the potential to undermine our performance and erode the quality of our working lives. For the last decade I have been a cartographer of sorts, painstakingly mapping the ecology and terrain of work’s greatest challenges. My passion is to help people discover how to “go beyond” their barriers to learn faster, perform better, and craft the working life they want. – Jesse Sostrin
