It's time for July's boss babe book club selection! This month I've chosen...
This book was actually recommended to me by my boyfriend who just finished reading it himself. It was given to him at a "lunch and learn" talk at his last job. The talk was all about creating a great management style by reframing how you think about your job. In other words, how can you go from doing good work to great work? And the book goes beyond management styles and covers a variety of occupations. I'm so excited to give into the book and I can't wait to hear what all of you think about it! So who's reading along with me?!
About the book, according to Amazon...
The question is: Do we make the contributions we're capable of? Is our best work getting out there? Breaking through? Creating a difference the world loves? We've long been told our ability to succeed depends on our IQ, talent, education level, gender, job title, or when and where we were born. Great Work turns that conventional thinking on its head to reveal that innovation can come from anyone, anywhere. With insights from the largest-ever study of award-winning work, Great Work reveals five practical skills that will help you ideate, innovate, and deliver work that gets noticed and appreciated. Great Work is filled with stories of real people in real jobs who did what was asked and then added something extra--a personal touch all their own--to deliver better-than-asked-for results. Their stories will inspire you to write your own page in the book of human progress.
