In Humanity Works Better, leadership experts Debbie Cohen and Kate Roeske-Zummer chart a new path forward: one that brings humanity, awareness, choice, and courage to the workplace. Their five practices explain how leaders and their teams can build the muscle required to work together as engaged productive human beings - the magic for a healthy culture and better business results.
Get the best—not just the most—out of your people.
Our modern workforce is suffering. For too long, organizations and leaders have sought success through a focus on efficiency and productivity, and it’s costing us dearly. Workplaces have become toxic and getting work done is a lot harder than it needs to be. Bullying and abuse has reached epidemic levels—along with high rates of burnout, turnover, and fatigue. Clearly, something needs to change.
In Humanity Works Better, leadership experts Debbie Cohen and Kate Roeske-Zummer chart a new path forward: one that brings humanity to the workplace through awareness, choice, and courage. The result? A healthier, more productive work environment that draws the best—rather than squeezes the most—out of people.
Inspired by proven techniques they’ve used to transform teams at organizations like Mozilla, Pinterest, Saba, Articulate, and Charge EPC, the authors guide you through their Five Practices. Through these Practices, company culture converts from toxic to healthy, from competitive to collaborative, from fearful to trusting, one human at a time.
That human we are talking about is you. Because, when you change, the people around you change. The Five Practices help you navigate the complex relationships that make us human beings, complexities that become roadblocks and make it hard to get important work done. This audiobook helps you build the awareness and master the skills to become a better person, and a better leader.
