Create Your Own Work Revolution
Research shows that employee engagement is highly correlated with business success, individual achievement, and better health, but only about 30% of employees are truly engaged. It shouldn't be this hard, and it isn't. What if everyone got satisfaction from their job? How would this affect their productivity and performance?
In her new book, The Work Revolution: Freedom and Excellence for All, Julie Clow, the former Learning and Organizational Development Manager at Google, articulates the rules we follow today in our workforce, the reasons they no longer work, and what we can do instead. She deconstructs the magic behind thriving, liberated organizations (such as Google) into clear principles that any individual, leader, and organization can adopt to create sustainable and engaging lives.
- For individuals, the book provides actionable changes anyone can make, regardless of where and who they work for, to create a more sustainable work-life blend. It provides concrete ways to navigate our existing organizations and influence them to change.
- For leaders, the book guides them to make tangible changes in their teams to enable greater autonomy and impact, and to manage and set up a team for success, both for the personal sustainability of the leader, but also for the good of the team.
- For organizations, the book outlines organizational culture principles that support and nurture high-performance and healthy environments. It provides clear options for instituting cultural change based on specific organizational challenges.
“Management fad after management fad is paraded throughout our organizations, promising the next-best fix for employee engagement and organizational productivity,” says Clow. “Everyone gets trained, processes are redesigned, and then, about a year later, we revisit our problems only to realize that absolutely nothing has change.”
Rejecting productivity Band-Aids and quick fixes, The Work Revolution conceptualizes a completely new workplace that embraces the always-connected reality to create organizations in which high achievers can sustainably thrive.
“We live in a new age of global companies, hyper-access to information, and accessibility to tools that enable us to bring any idea to life. Strangely, workplaces are lagging behind the promise of this open and collaborative world, with many remaining rule-based, top-down, dreary environments optimized for conformity and little else,” adds Clow. “I believe that freedom in the workplace is worth fighting for, and that every person and every organization can be excellent. When we unleash human potential, great things happen.”
