Chris Murchison pens blog on connecting with colleagues through handwriting

January 13, 2017


“Why write a letter when you could more efficiently communicate the same sentiment via technology?” Chris Murchison asks and explores the question in a new blog posted for Whil, an organization that aims to create happier, healthier, and high-performing workforces.

Combining research from the Templeton Foundation on workplace gratitude and his own personal experience, Murchison shows how the outwardly simple act of handwriting has inwardly resounding effects on feelings of gratitude and connection.

Chris Murchison is a visiting leader at the Center for Positive Organizations and the former vice president for staff development and culture at HopeLab, a member of the Positive Organizations Consortium.
