Do you hate cramming all of your errands into the weekend?
Do you resent having to beg permission to watch
your kid’s weekday soccer game?
Are you tired of
seeing people who aren’t very good at their jobs get
promoted because they arrive early and stay late?
There’s got to be a better way—and there is! Cali Ressler
and Jody Thompson show that everyone benefits when we
change the focus from hours to outcomes. It’s just that our
traditional definition of work—Monday through Friday, nine
to five—doesn’t make sense in the always-on global economy.
So, Ressler and Thompson created the Results-Only
Work Environment. In a ROWE, you control when, where,
and how long you work. As long as you meet your objectives,
the way you spend your time is entirely up to you.
Suddenly, work isn’t a place you go, it’s a thing you
do. In a ROWE, there are no mandatory meetings or
fixed schedules. You stop doing any activity that wastes
time, and no one criticizes you for “leaving early” or
“coming in late.” If you do your best work at midnight or on
Sundays, go for it!
ROWE sounds like a fantasy, but
Ressler and Thompson have already made it a reality at Best
Buy, a Fortune 100 company. They have proven that ROWE not
only makes employees happier but also delivers better
results. And now the authors are helping companies
implement ROWE nationwide.
Infused with passion and
common sense, Why Work Sucks and How to Fix It will
change the way you think about your job, your company, and
your quality of life. Read it and join the revolution!
