3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By siobhan farrer on June 8 2010
Format: Paperback
This book is terrific. It has tons of nifty tips and tools to get people more focused on doing their best work and being intentional about where they put their efforts. Withinn hours of dipping into it I was adapting one approach for a brainstorming session i was leading. It's inspiring, engaging and really, really practical, all at the same time. It sounds liked a cliche but it really will replace several other books on my bookshelf.I have already bought a couple of extra copies and given them away to friends and co- workers.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Robert Morris HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Sept. 1 2010
Format: Paperback
As Michael Bungay Stanier explains, "This book is the sum of my work with thousands of people around the world as a coach and facilitator. It uses just fifteen key tools - conceptual maps to help you identify what really matters to you, what drives the choices and the actions you take, and how you can get onto a path to more creative, motivated, and inspired work that's good for you and for those you work for." Presumably some purpose-driven people can be happy, content, and fulfilled by obtaining great wealth, power, etc.

As I worked my way through Stanier's narrative, I was again reminded of Teresa Amabile's admonition, "Do what you love and love what you do." In her various writings, she also stresses the importance of having a purpose that includes but is not limited to achieving personal goals. For Dave and Ulrich, this means "the why of work." For Simon Sinek, it suggests the imperative to "start with why." Stanier joins the discussion when expressing the first of six "Great Work Paradoxes": You don't need to save the world but you do need to make a difference...a positive, productive, beneficial difference. More about the other paradoxes later.

Stanier invokes the journey as his central metaphor and presents his information, observations, insights, cautions, caveats, and recommendations within the framework of a journey that involves both sustained effort (e.g. reflection, completing separate but interrelated exercises, maintaining commitment and focus) and significant discovery (i.e. revelations of what really is -- and isn't -- most important). The ultimate objective is to Do More Great Work. This is not a destination because the journey of discovery should never end until one's life does.

Well worth a read if you feel less than 95% satisfied with how your work/career is going. If you would like to feel a little more in control and a lot more satisfaction at work, there are some clear, concise ideas to help you out.

Format: Paperback
There is likely a reason why you considered buying this book - you might feel stuck, frustrated, or just have a deep sense in your gut that you are capable of doing more. This book provides a very practical link that moves from thinking to doing. It's not just more of the same - if you are serious about doing great work, then get pencil in hand and start working through the sheets. The author's offbeat sense of humour also helps us understand that while the work is serious, sometimes your approach to great work should be less serious and focus more on possibility and potential.
