Edmondson</b>, Professor, Harvard Business School, author of <i>The Fearless Organisation</i> and <i>Teaming</i></p> <p>"Altman mixes together case studies, anecdotes and careful empirical research to offer wise and practical advice about how to make work better, and thus to get better work. If companies followed even a quarter of his suggestions they would foster a more productive and more satisfied workplace for everyone. And his engaging, informal style makes for effortless reading.”<br />–<b>Barry Schwartz</b> teaches at Haas School of Business, U.C. Berkeley and is the author of <i>The Paradox of Choice</i> and <i>Why We Work</i></p> <p><b><br />We work in places, ways, and on things that were once the stuff of sci-fi flicks.

It’s the unyielding commitment to a purpose that gives shapers their shimmer. The benefits of this shine are plentiful: enhanced wellbeing, more community engagement, a healthier economy, better work for all, and a more beautiful world.</p> <p><b>Altman is a workologist who guides companies to leave politics and posturing behind in favour of transparent and trusting cultures</b>. After decades facilitating culture-defining practices for leaders, you’ll learn everything he knows:</p> <ul> <li>Adopt the mindset for creativity, innovation, and boundless growth</li> <li>Amplify your career and inspire others to do the same</li> <li>Help create engaged teams through building leadership skills</li> <li>Become a better leader through the five new modes of leadership ethics</li> <li>Learn what underpins the most resilient organisations in the world</li> </ul> <p><b>The stories and anecdotes in SHAPERS come from hundreds of interviews with innovators dedicated to improving our outdated system of work.</b> These trailblazers include CEOs, organisational designers, social psychologists, workplace strategists, and start-up entrepreneurs. </p> <p><b>See your work from a whole new perspective and focus on what fulfils you</b>.
