Workplace of the living dead
In this collection of humourous essays, the author is focusing on employers and HR folks. The book is not meant to be too serious but the messages are.
The author encourages you to have a laugh but keep your inner ear open for the subtext. (If Shakespeare had a cellphone, he would've sent subtexts.)
He provokes some thought on a range of ways to build your own engagement skills in order to connect with your people's pre- existing inner motivation. That's a whole lot easier than trying to externally motivate unmotivated people. These are the zombies referred to in the book's title.
He stresses that there are no actual zombies in this book. OR, ARE THERE?! (Of course, if there were, you wouldn't see them right behind you until it was TOO LATE!!!!................)
Just a few of the topics the author covers:
The Future's Most In-Demand Skill Will Be Learning How To Learn
Age Diversity Will Be A Massive Source Of Strength
Never Look At Psychometric Profiles In Isolation
Economic Recessions Will Happen; Plan For Them
Time Is The New Currency
Education Is A Journey
Time Shifting Will Be Even More Prevalent
People With Glass Ceilings Shouldn't Throw Stones Upwards
Attitude? I Think We Have Some In Aisle 9?
Sack The Coach
A fabulous book for the modern manager.
