It will get you thinking about possibilities and push us further into the new way of work. Share the book with your HR leaders, and discuss how you can work with them to optimize the opportunities, and avoid the pitfalls, of the new global workplace.
John, Ravin, and David demonstrate how work is evolving, and detail what managers need to do differently to win the war for talent. This book is a practical map for managers and employees. While forward looking in its approach, it captures important and practical insights for CEOs operating in today's environment as well.
And in this smart, compelling book, a trio of sharp minds provides the intellectual GPS you'll need to find your way. If you're interested in the future of work, this book is an essential read. There are big obvious shifts like globalization and the impact of technology and emerging trends around value and purpose that make us rethink what we are trying to accomplish. Lead the Work is a wonderful combination of theory and practice that explores these changes.
It helps us understand what is happening and the 'new choices' we have to innovate and execute. How do we use partners and customers?
How can technology source skills from within our own organization? How can work be dissected to be more responsive and fast? John, Ravin, and David help us all be more aware of these fundamental changes and more prepared to make informed and deliberate decisions in this new world of work. A big reason is that work is no longer done only by your employees, but by a vast global community that works in very different ways, and expects very different things.
Lead the Work describes a pivotal change in how organizations and workers will engage, a shift as tectonic as past evolutions like online commerce, the sharing economy, and social media. The book draws on engaging stories, scholarly evidence, and best practices from leading organizations, and the decades of experience of its authors. If this evolution in work hasn't reached your organization yet, it will, and its progress will be exponential. This book will help you get ahead of the curve to navigate this new world.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase. Thank you John Boudreau, Ravin and David Creelman for having us think about work in an entirely new way - it makes total sense. Leaders of organizations should be inspired finally with a relevant and contemporary as well as pragmatic concept of leading work. It opens the door to finding "star quality and engaged talent" when you need them.
The discussion of new talent platforms is really interesting and so well done.
I thought the stories of actual freelancers added much to the reality of this change in how people want to work today. The future is now. You are challenging us to think about "de-constructing" work and bringing free lance and flexible modes of getting things done into a real consideration. It is tantalizing for sure and then you have chapter 5 which talks about how to decide what is right for your culture. Leave it to John to bring us evidence based and logical ways to look at optimizing these possibilities. This is a must read chapter for sure One person found this helpful.

Where getting things done once meant assigning it to an employee, today's leaders are increasingly at risk if they fail to recognize that talent A detailed look at the evolution of employment and its far-reaching implications Lead the Work takes an incisive look at the evolving nature of work, and how it's affecting management and productivity at the organizational level. Where getting things done once meant assigning it to an employee, today's leaders are increasingly at risk if they fail to recognize that talent can float into and out of an organization.
Long-term employment has given way to medium- or short-term employment, marking the first step in severing the bond that once fixed an individual inside an organization. Getting work done by means other than an employee was once considered a fringe event, but now leading organizations are accepting and taking advantage of the notion that talent has shown itself to be mutable. This book explores this phenomenon in detail and provides a new roadmap to help managers navigate this new environment.
