Rethink the work week
Book recommendation: Shorter: Work Better, Smarter, and Less – Here's How
by Alex Soojung-Kim Pang
What if the dream of working less but being more productive is actually reality? In fact, Silicon Valley-based consultant Alex Soojung-Kim Pang believes that it’s the only way to work. Already with one bestseller on his CV, Pang’s new release explores the benefits of working shorter, even fewer days. He contests the idea that outworking your colleagues, and overworking in general, is the route to success in the modern workplace. By re-examining the future of work with examples from visionaries who have succeeded in redesigning the traditional workplace, he describes how to improve focus, prioritise thoughtfulness in leadership, and strengthen team collaboration by being more effective during a four-day work week. This step-by-step guide will lead you to rethink the ideals of a typical schedule, well before you find yourself a victim of the burnout culture.
