This is a must-read book for executives, managers and leaders. Frankly, I'm not an HR professional so I don't know how this will be taken by professionals in that sector. But as a manager for now a decade I can tell you this is the most refreshing and hope-filled read on this topic I've ever laid eyes on.
What is so groundbreaking about this book?
Bottom line, real professionals want to do good work. Purpose over perks.
What people want most is autonomy, clarity, focus, responsibility. We aren't a "family", stop saying that - we are a team, tell us what that means to you, our leader.
There are no more lifers in an "agile" business world, we are project focused and retention is a false indicator of a healthy organization.
Companies never cared about your career, so why even pretend that's an HR function?
Performance reviews and decades-old systems are toxic productivity/morale killers.
This book breaks down the culture, questions, structure and has so many practical really actionable ways you as a manager, executive, leader or yes, HR professional can refresh the way you and your teams work - today.
