“Can our organization be a little bit more like Pixar, Spotify, Netflix, Zappos, Virgin, Valve or IDEO? Is there something I can do to get a better company culture? Better collaboration? Better management?”
The book #Workout offers concrete games, tools, and practices for all workers so they can introduce better management, with fewer managers. It addresses many common questions, such as:
How can we measure team performance?
How can we decide on salaries and bonuses?
How can we define job titles and career paths?
How can we replace performance appraisals?
How can we motivate our workers?
How can we change the organization’s culture?
In modern organizations, people are expected to be “servant leaders” and “systems thinkers”, but nobody explains exactly how to do this on a Monday morning. “Empowering workers” and “delighting customers” is crucial, but it’s not concrete. Managers, and everyone else, need to know “how” because most organizational problems are management problems.
Management is too important to leave to the managers!
This book offers you:
Serious games to help improve organizational culture
Simple practices that increase employee engagement
Creative stories that inspire teamwork and collaboration
New ways to achieve team accountablity and responsibility
Easy workout exercises to make the business more agile
Modern tools that enable people to enjoy a happy Monday
When you implement the games, tools, and practices in this book, you can move the organization toward better management with fewer managers.
