About this item
About the BookThe workplace has undergone a massive shift. Remote work and economic instability have depressed innovation and left us disconnected and disengaged. Paychecks no longer buy loyalty, happiness, and effort. Quiet quitting runs rampant, and people show up without truly showing up. Alarmed managers are doubling down on keystroke surveillance, productivity tracking and back-to-the-office mandates, when what they should be doing is the opposite -- affording employees the dignity necessary to inject purpose and motivation into their work. In The Song of Significance, Seth Godin posits a new view of what industry leaders must do now. The choice is simple: either keep treating your people as disposable and join in the AI-fueled race to the bottom, or build a significant organization that enrolls, empowers, and trusts employees to deliver their best work, no matter where they're working from. Godin offers a series of commitments leaders must make, and a list of organizational milestones on the way to significance. It's time for leaders to make and keep a new promise, and to recognize that, as Godin says, "Humans aren't a resource. They are the point."--
Book SynopsisA soulful re-envisioning of what work and leadership can be, from the visionary mind of renowned author and thought leader, Seth Godin The Song of Significance is a rousing contemplation on work: why it is the way it is, why it's gotten so bad, what all of us-especially leaders-can do to make it better. Economic instability and the rise of remote work have left us disconnected and disengaged. Alarmed managers are responding with harsh top-down edicts, layoffs, surveillance and mandatory meetings. Workers are responding by quiet quitting and working their wage. But it doesn't have to be this way. Through 144 provocative stanzas, legendary business author Seth Godin gets to the heart of what ails us; he shows what's really at the root of these trends, and challenges us to do better in ways that matter. The choice is simple. We can endure the hangover of industrial capitalism, keep treating people as disposable, and join in the AI-fueled race to the bottom. Or we come together to build a significant organization that enrolls, empowers, and trusts everyone to deliver their best work, no matter where they are. This is a book to share with bosses and co-workers, to discuss and put to action. No matter what our role, it's within our power to change. Because, as Godin writes, "Humans aren't a resource. They are the point."
