How To Do Your Happiest Work Ever
There's a lot of ways you can go about doing business. There's a lot of methods, tactics, tips, strategies. And there's approximately 987,463 books to teach you about them. When my friend Chris Reimer announced he was working on a book, I thought "Cool!" We both share an affinity for bacon and business and beer, and his gig with Kaldi's Coffee means I can ground out one coffee pun after another.
However, I'm not going to lie. With so much noise in the industry, I often wonder if something unique (read: not a snore fest) can be brought to the table. After all, books are a collection of thoughts, ideas, and experiences, many of which we've been accustomed to already in some fashion.
"Happywork: A Business Parable About The Journey To Teamwork, Profit, And Purpose" is about Sam, an effective turnaround specialist, who unknowingly takes on the biggest job of his career: trying to steer electronics manufacturer Vunorri Inc away from the impending iceberg. Unfortunately, and as Sam quickly learns, the ship has already endured a lot of damage, slowly but surely taking on more and more water.
From a complete lack of respect from both employees and management to drama that would make any high school look like a Buddhist temple, Happywork delves into what's driving the company apart, and how to bring it back together. Like a novel from your favorite author, the book is written in such a way that it actually doesn't feel like you're reading yet another business book.
And that's because Happywork isn't yet another business book, but an intoxicating story of how if we treat people just a little bit better, we can achieve amazing results. With so much craziness going on in our world today, it's a simple concept to get behind, and make not just work, but every other facet of your life, happier.
