2021 was anything but a dull year. Some people call it the worst year ever, while others are starting to see hope as the pandemic feels more under control. Whatever your experience has been, we invite you to reflect on what has worked (or not) and to appreciate all the good things that happened in 2021 – don't let bad news cloud your achievements.

Every year, our team gets together to reflect on our challenges and progress, too. One of our key measures of success is the impact our work creates – not in terms of business but in terms of contributing to building more human workplaces.

In 2021, participants from over 250 cities across six continents joined our open programs. One million unique visitors read at least 3, or more posts and our free tools have been downloaded 100,000+ times in the past 12 months. These are not just numbers, but a reflection of the appetite for insights and t,ools to build better workplaces. And we are honored to be part of your journey.

Every year, we also review the most read articles in the Fearless Culture blog – another indicator of what matters to our readers.

Here's the list of the most-read articles across the five different categories: culture design, leadership, teamwork, personal growth, and tools.
