Looking Back At 2010 And The Top 25 Posts

Last year was full of changes for me. Most meaningfully, my father passed away in October and his older brother passed away in December. While I continue to mourn their loss, the memory of my dad’s resilience and sense of humor continue to be a source of strength for me.

2010 was also a big year for professional change, as I left Forrester Research and we founded Temkin Group. While the company has only been in business for about 1/2 year, it’s been great. We’re not only having a lot of fun, but we’ve been extremely lucky to have many great clients.

And (thanks to you) this blog continued to have strong readership last year. While it takes a lot of time to keep posting fresh material, I’m totally gratified by the number of people who read, and think about, my posts. Here are my 25 most-read posts from 2010:

About Bruce Temkin, CCXP
I'm an experience (XM) management catalyst; helping organizations improve results by engaging the hearts and minds of their employees, customers, and partners. I enjoy researching and speaking about these topics. I lead the Qualtrics XM Institute, which is the world's best job. We're igniting a global community of XM Professionals who are inspired and empowered to radically improve the human experience. To achieve this goal, my team focuses on thought leadership, training, and community building. My work is driven by a set of fundamental beliefs: 1) Everything starts and ends with human beings, so you need to understand how people think, feel, and behave; 2) XM is a discipline that needs to be woven throughout an organization's entire operating fabric; and 3) Building the XM discipline requires a combination of culture, competency, and technology.
