The Daley Almanac
I’ve enjoyed a lifetime of gratifying collaborations: producing “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood”, advising philanthropists and corporations on their charitable giving, creating strategy for health care organizations, developing computer-based psychotherapy services, advising companies on organizational development and change-management, managing strategy for a brain-monitoring medical device company, and, finally, serving as executive coach to senior leaders. I have also founded or co-founded some non-profit service organizations of which I’m proud.
Being Fred Rogers’ friend and partner early on (I was president of the Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood company and wrote a number of the programs with him) dramatically deepened my understanding of what it means to bring out the best in others. Consequently, I have adopted a favorite definition of love: “to yearn for the fulfillment of another person on their own terms”. I hope that my writing reflects such a view.
