  The Workplace Masters Institute is a joint venture of Jessica Miller-Merrell, Linda Blackmon, and Elijah May, founders of Workology, ExtendMyTeam, and The Experience Firm, respectively.

The stated mission of the institute is advancing performance in the areas of leadership, recruiting, and human resources. Established experts (Masters) from across the country, like Meaning at Work author Danny Gutknecht, will come to Austin and lead classes, workshops, and symposiums for professionals charged with increasing workplace productivity.

As the nature of work and the workplace continues to evolve, based on both advances in technology and the shift towards more human-focused policies, we want to provide a place where critical conversations, collaboration, and education can take place.

About the Author: Carrie Brunner

Carrie Brunner grew up in a small town in northern New Brunswick. She studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married her husband one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children. Carrie writes mostly on provincial stories.
