How Chocolate Can Increase Passion and Engagement in Your Workplace

Springing from his long-standing interest in creating more inspiring workplaces, Rob Chipman recently helped produce Chocolate: Passion at Work. The film documents how passion drove a Utah man to become one of the best artisan chocolate-makers in the world. After watching the film, you'll actually be able to savor several varieties of fine chocolate. We'll then explore how chocolate-making can be a powerful metaphor for workplace improvement and how passions is a key to enabling greater innovation, excellence, productivity, and perseverance. Along the way, you will learn how to be more passionate in your own role and spread passion throughout your organization.


11:30 AM
