The Way We're Working Isn't Working
IN THIS SUMMARY
Today’s highly competitive business world has led to a work environment where people feel a constant sense of urgency. Unfortunately, this atmosphere reduces employee creativity, engagement, and performance. In The Way We’re Working Isn’t Working, Tony Schwartz, with Jean Gomes, and Catherine McCarthy suggest that by balancing periods of activity with rest, individuals can restore their physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual energy stores. Based on their research, the authors outline techniques that employees and companies can use to promote greater energy, engagement, focus, and creativity. These methods can help organizations develop competitive advantage based on employees’ authenticity, creativity, and resilience in the face of change.
