We spend an enormous amount of time at our jobs, and it’s easy to get caught up in the cycle – they don’t call it the rat race for nothing! This new book is a positive and motivating look at ways to “make work less awful”.
The author offers suggestions that could improve your work environment and each section has real-world examples that are fairly simple to implement. I haven’t worked in a traditional office in a while, however, I would have LOVED it, if my bosses had tried some of these techniques.
Whether you’re the boss or the worker bee, these short chapters are filled with simple, everyday practices such as: go for a walking meeting, turn off your notifications, have a digital sabbath, move the coffee machine and my favorite: know when to leave people alone!
This is a great book for any employee or manager looking for ways to improve morale and increase positivity in the workplace.
“An important reminder of simple everyday practices to improve how we all work together, which will lead to greater team and individual happiness and performance. Great results will follow.”—Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter and Square
“With just 30 changes, you can transform your work experience from bland and boring (or worse) to fulfilling, fun, and even joyful.”—Daniel Pink, author of When and Drive
The vice president of Twitter Europe and host of the top business podcast Eat Sleep Work Repeat offers thirty smart, research-based hacks for bringing joy and fun back into our burned out, uninspired work lives.
How does a lunch break spark a burst of productivity? Can a team’s performance be improved simply by moving the location of the coffee maker? Why are meetings so often a waste of time, and how can a walking meeting actually get decisions made?
As an executive with decades of management experience at top Silicon Valley companies including YouTube, Google, and Twitter, Bruce Daisley has given a lot of thought to what makes a workforce productive and what factors can improve the workplace to benefit a company’s employees, customers, and bottom line. In his debut book, he shares what he’s discovered, offering practical, often counterintuitive, insights and solutions for reinvigorating work to give us more meaning, productivity, and joy at the office.
A Gallup survey of global workers revealed shocking news: only 13% of employees are engaged in their jobs. This means that burn out and unhappiness at work are a reality for the vast majority of workers. Managers—and employees themselves—can make work better. Eat Sleep Work Repeat shows them how, offering more than two dozen research-backed, user-friendly strategies, including:
- Go to Lunch (it makes you less tired over the weekend)
- Suggest a Tea Break (it increases team cohesiveness and productivity)
- Conduct a Pre-Mortem (foreseeing possible issues can prevent problems and creates a spirit of curiosity and inquisitiveness)
“Let’s start enjoying our jobs again,” Daisley insists. “It’s time to rediscover the joy of work.”
