The Work Revolution
Freedom and Excellence for AllBook - 2012
We live in a new age of global companies, hyper-access toinformation, and accessibility to tools that enable us to bring anyidea life. Strangely, our workplaces are lagging behind the promiseof this open and collaborative world. Most organizations arerule-based, top-down, dreary environments optimized for conformityand little else. The Work Revolution creates a compellingportrait of a different kind of work.
"I believe that freedom in the workplace is worth fightingfor and that every person and every organization can beexcellent."
Julie Clow articulates the rules we follow today in our work force,the reasons they no longer work, and what we can do instead. TheWork Revolution deconstructs the magic behind thriving,liberated organizations (such as Google) into clear principles thatany individual, leader, and organization can adopt to createsustainable and engaging lives.
Rejecting productivity Band-Aids and quick fixes, TheWork Revolution conceptualizes a completely new workplacethat embraces the always-connected reality to create organizationsin which high achievers can sustainably thrive.
