The future of work is here, let’s grab a surfboard and ride the waves.
Guy Suter, AMPLL CEO

Wouldn’t it be great if we could get a clue of how a teammate is doing with a quick glance or click of a button? As a former head of HR and executive coach, I have come to rely very heavily on my “spidey senses,” or as my co-worker Steve affectionately calls it, my “jedi-mind tricks.” Essentially, in order to do my job of connecting teams, inspiring leaders, and raising levels of empathy in an organization, I need to have one thing completely “on-lock.” Energy.

The energy in the room, in the building, and between team members. It is hard to explain, quantify, or qualify, but a well run, high trust, connected team has a certain “hum” within their operation. This “hum” is what the makers of AMPLL were after when we began to build the product you see today.

Our team took to developing a battery that serves as a quick visual to get “the hum” of your team. Along the way we have learned a whole lot about work, life, and teams.  We have interviewed 100’s, read thousands of articles and books, and listened to countless podcasts.  We are encouraged by the number of likeminded people who recognize that the future of work is changing and that we as humans can too! Gone are the days of 9-to-5 and placing your own personal needs below the needs of the company.  The Makers of AMPLL are dedicated to bringing what we have learned --and engineered-- directly to YOU. You, the team member, and the hero of this new epic journey.

“The most dangerous phrase in the language is ‘we’ve always done it this way.’” —Rear Admiral Grace Hopper

As a group of lifelong learners, we long ago acknowledged the fact that there are very few things that you can ever really know for sure.  In many ways, as original thinkers, and avid consumers of Adam Grant’s books and podcasts, we question EVERYTHING. As I type this out, it occurs to me that after a year of learning, researching, and developing there are a few things that are unwavering, unquestionable, and what we know for sure.  Here they are:

The Things We Know for Sure

  • Worklife balance is a myth; Work and life are one, and our responsibility is to care for the whole person no matter what activity they are engaged in
  • People genuinely care about each other and crave belonging; They want to be a part of a supportive team
  • The key to productivity and success is not correlated with the number of hours you have in a week but your personal level of energy to get things done
  • The future of work is here; Let’s embrace it.
