People are what make companies great. Good leaders know this, and spend time, effort, and money taking care of the people who work for them so that their business results are phenomenal. So why is it that so many people are still miserable at work. Experts around the world offer countless ideas and techniques and training for elevating the joy (and performance) of workers. And still we fail.
Things must change. Using potent examples from 35 years of working inside and outside of organizations as they strive to be people centered, bestselling author and consultant/coach Moe Carrick offers a fresh, honest, and direct roadmap for leaders everywhere who seek to make their workplace fit for human life.
Bravespace Workplace shows us the unadulterated truth of what it takes to make companies bring out the absolute best in human beings, despite our messy, imperfect, needy, demanding, and complex habits, needs and issues. The book shows how leaders need to focus on six interdependent levers of their day-to-day work (culture, leadership, team, meaning, design, and partnership with machines) to materially enliven and lift the humanity and the performance of everyone who works for them – which is a win–win for both employee and employer.
Bravespace Workplace offers a clearly imagined future for organizations in which the people who work there grow, connect, and thrive. Carrick holds a potent point of view about the unarguable aspects of actually creating a workplace for people, not machines. The book is for leaders in all organizations, at every level, as well as people development, HR, OD, coaches, and consultants who advise others about organizational culture, leadership, structures, and teams.
