The Framework

ANTHROCUBELOGY
the ANTHROPOLOGY of CUBEOPOLIS:

EXPLORING HOW human-to-human SHARED interactions can affect WORKSPACE CULTURAL SHIFTS 

ANTHROPOLOGY, as defined over here by the American Anthropological Association, includes the traditional sociocultural anthropology, biological (or physical) anthropology, archaeology, and linguistic anthropology.

CUBEOPOLIS (kyu-BOP-oh-liss) def: 1. (the manner of naming greek city-states, that is, “-polis” -meaning city, citizenship or of the people) cubicle city, may also be called cube farm. 2. collection of workspaces.

anthropology + cubeopolis = anthrocubeology

CUBEOPOLIS – my coined word for describing not only one’s physical workplace but also the WORKSPACE – the space that one’s position occupies and affects the immediate workplace, the general public, the broader community, the world.

ANTHROCUBELOGY – is a bit of a “chicken and egg” exploration and expression of –

  • ideas about approaches for catalyzing organizational cultural shifts to affect workspace satisfaction,

as well as

  • ideas about approaches for affecting workspace satisfaction to catalyze organizational cultural shifts

– and in both cases, it is the INDIVIDUAL, the human being – the CUBESTER – who is the common denominator.

Cubesters’ stories – observed and experienced – are DECONSTRUCTED (e.g., values, choice, behaviors, attitudes, etc.) and RECONTEXTUALIZED. It is about discovering how people interact in the workplace (and the broader workspace) to interpret and understand how workspace cultural shifts occur.

ANTHROCUBEOLOGY shines a bright light on the workspace and yells –

WTF CUBEOPOLIS?!
Why y’gotta be this way?

WAIT …
YOU – yeah, YOU – Why YOU gotta be this way?

ANTHROCUBEOLOGY is where observations and perspectives on shaping cultural shifts through –

  • INTERACTIONS
  • WORKSPACE
  • CHOICE

– come together at the intersection of –

  • IMPROVISATION
  • BEHAVIOR DESIGN
  • SERVANT LEADERSHIP

– which are the three areas that shape my exploration.

ANTHROCUBEOLOGY is where I share my inspired and unique point of view from –

LIFELONG LEARNING through CUBESTERS’ STORIES
