“Every single day, somewhere in the world, Aloha comes to life.
As it lives and breathes within us, it defines the epitome of sincere, gracious, and intuitively perfect customer service given from one person to another.”
—Managing with Aloha,
Bringing Hawaii’s Universal Values to the Art of Business
This genuine connection is the Aloha Spirit Hawai‘i is known for.
Now imagine if the customer is you, and if the customer service provider is your manager, one who continually shares his or her Aloha Spirit in the coaching and partnership they offer you. This possibility, this liberating reinvention, is one that managers everywhere can and must believe in, demonstrate and sustain if we are to truly thrive at work. Managing with Aloha helps managers and leaders do just that; grow in their belief and intention, and make worthwhile, meaningful work our reality.
When we Manage with Aloha, we improve the workplace value by value. If you have selected your workplace based on its alignment with your personal values, the work you do will be the best, most fulfilling work you have ever done: It will be your Ho‘ohana, your intentional and worthwhile work.
The good health of the Aloha-aligned workplace is waiting for you, your manager, and everyone involved with your organizational culture, and you have arrived at the right place to learn more.
Can you sit and visit with me for a few minutes?
Welcome to Managing with Aloha: Jump in and explore.
This site was initially created in 2004 as an on-going resource for the readers and students of Managing with Aloha, Bringing Hawaii’s Universal values to the Art of Business. There have been redesigns over the years, but the site’s purpose remains the same: You’ve read the book or you’ve taken one of my workshops, and you’re excited about the possibilities it presents for you; now how do you make a life’s work practice your reality?
Today there is Managing with Aloha movement, and my Ho‘ohana (the work I personally devote my most worthwhile and rewarding efforts to) stretches from within workplaces in Hawai‘i to virtual global communities. Please know I am here to support you: My intention with this website, is to welcome the person who is newly discovering Managing with Aloha for the first time, and to continually be a resource for those who have answered their calling to serve others as both manager and leader. We call these good people Alaka‘i Managers: Alaka‘i is the Hawaiian value of leadership.
Thank you for reading, and I look forward to welcoming you to our Ho‘ohana Community of Managing with Aloha practitioners. There is an incredible amount of goodness waiting for you to newly discover within your own values.
If I can answer any other questions for you, please write me, or we can talk story right here in the comments.
With my aloha,
