A World Without Email: Reinventing Work in the Age of Communication Congestion by Cal Newport
Modern knowledge workers are always communicating. Your days are marked by an inexorable flood of incoming messages and back and forth digital conversations – a state of constant, fearful chatter in which no one can part and therefore no one has the cognitive bandwidth to do substantive work. There was a time when tools like email were up to date, but a thorough review of what is known shows that the “Hyperactive Hive Mind” workflow they helped create has become a productivity disaster that reduces profitability, and potentially even overall economic growth slowed down. Equally worrying, it makes us miserable. People just aren’t wired for constant digital communication. The question is not if a world without email is coming (it is), but if you are ahead of this trend. A world without email will convince you that the time has come for bold change and will guide you through making it right.
Beat Burnout At Work: Why Teams Hold Paula Davis’ Secret Of Wellbeing And Resilience
Burnout has become one of the most talked about issues in the workplace, and its effects are far-reaching. The 24-hour working pace, the constant demands and the scarce resources can easily put busy professionals on the path to burnout, a cycle that only accelerated during the COVID-19 pandemic. Burnout affects the health and well-being of the entire company. However, most attempts to focus on strategies targeting individuals will help. Something is missing. Davis’ research-driven, easy-to-read, actionable book is the first of its kind to explore a new solution to the problem of burnout at work: a comprehensive approach that aims to build resilience in teams of all sizes.
Why Startups Fail: A New Roadmap for Business Success by Tom Eisenmann
Why do startups fail? This question surprised Harvard Business School professor Tom Eisenmann when he realized he couldn’t answer it. So he started a multi-year research project to find out. In Why Startups Fail, Eisenmann reveals his findings: six different patterns that are responsible for the vast majority of startup failures. Drawing on fascinating stories of ventures that didn’t keep their early promises – from a home decorator to a concierge dog walk, from a dating app to the inventor of a sophisticated social robot, from a fashion brand to a startup that has a huge network of charging stations for electric vehicles – Eisenmann provides a framework for identifying when a company is vulnerable to these patterns, as well as a wealth of strategies and tactics to avoid them.
