Welcome to WeMoveTogether.
My name is Michael Hurley. My passion is organizational effectiveness, leadership, and teamwork. My curiosity is how we organize and thrive together. With this blog, I present my thoughts, ideas and random musings focused on organizational life.
Why focus on leadership and organizational life? At its essence Leadership is a process of influence. Great leaders move the world around them and have the influence to bring true change. Leadership is both a role for individuals and a shared responsibility for a team focused on achieving great work.
Before a business career, I studied Anthropology and was a college athlete. Both of these passions have influenced me as a leader throughout my career. In fact, my first experiences as a leader involved athletics. With this blog, I will touch on my experiences as a member of a crew team (rowing) which provides interesting food for thought on the interplay of extreme teamwork, tribal behavior, and leadership. With my anthropology studies, I learned the importance of a holistic view of events, the power of observation and the importance of culture. With this blog I touch on the concepts of anthropology as a key source for understanding leadership, teamwork, and organizational life.
I hold a master’s degree in Organizational Development and Behavior. Leadership development was a key part of my studies. I have developed and led innovative leadership development programs and have lived the life of a leader for many years. Yet, it is in how we connect and thrive together that makes the most difference. Thus the name for this blog was born, WeMoveTogether.
Let’s connect and start a conversation.
Your blog is an insperation, very much what I had in mind, and it seems to me we share thinking on the Hr role and leadership. Im very new to this so please excuse the rough work so far.
