Newminder Ben Morris had the chance to check out the 2017 Positive Business Conference, at University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business. Over two days, he got to peek behind the curtain of the thought leaders who are driving positive workplace culture trends today.

Here, Ben reflects on his favorite takeaway from the event, from Bruce N. Pfau and Robert E. Quinn’s session “The Power of Work’s Higher Purpose in Driving Employee Engagement and Business Results.”

Newminder Steve Chang also made it to the conference, and you can watch his reflection here: Leading With Emotions: Newmind at the Positive Business Conference.
