Description

This inspirational, motivating, at times playful book uses twelve short, thought provoking exercises that effectively force the reader to look at what his or her work really is, and find ways to change the mix. The exercises, called maps because of the quick, visual way they lead the reader from A to B to Z, begin with defining great work - assess your personal bad-good ratio; tap into the power of role models; analyze those moments when work turned into a flow. There are maps that explore personal creativity and inspire brainstorming. And maps to help put ideas into motion, including how to structure time, how to elicit help from members of your team, even how to navigate an idea through the organisation. And along the way, there are tips for clearing time to move away from bad work - including how to use the drama triangle of transactional analysis and stop being a 'rescuer' who takes on other people's problems, and how not to say 'no' but how to say 'yes' more slowly, making sure you're doing what's most important.

Our customer reviews

Having read a number of other "motivational/productivity" books by respected authors, "Do More Great Work"is the one that hits the button best. While all of the others focus on the reader and their alignment to Mazlow's self-actualisation, "Do More Great Work" focuses more on business demands which, let's be honest, are more likely to be the area causing the concern and as has been pointed out many times, work is where we spend the greatest part of our life. The book is very much hands-on and a number of downloadable worksheets and supporting guidance are provided to help the reader get the best out of their time. All in all, well worth the investment of a small amount of money and with a reasonalble commitment of time to carry out the exercises readers will be more able to take control of work and do the great work they enjoy.show more
