Google’s School of Personal Growth

Google continues to go from strength to strength. It employs around 19,000 people, with annual revenues of $17bn and profits of $5bn.  It has 70% of the search market and 40% of the online advertising market. Not bad going for a 10-year old which started life in a garage in California.

Now the company has set up a School of Personal Growth, which aims help employees develop emotionally, mentally, physically and ‘beyond the self’.

I mentioned Google’s interest in Positive Psychology in this posting (Nov 12) about MAPP vacancies. Perhaps if it carries on growing at anything like the current rate, it might persuade other large organisations to follow suit, and maybe even abandon their traditional training courses to do something more enlightened (literally).

We live in hope!
