We spend most of our waking lives working. Thousands of us are just going through the motions, disengaged, stressed-out, and wanting more out of our work lives than a paycheck. We search for meaning but often times find it just out of our grasp. More troubling, we find our personal values are in a state of conflict with the pervasive, self-serving values that drive much of the culture that surrounds us. Making the climb represents a conscious decision to walk a different, more fulfilling path. It begins with a simple step, but can lead to a more purposeful journey that itself produces life-changing ripple effects at work and at home.
