“Alive at Work” by Daniel M Cable

The book is aimed at leaders/managers, providing them with ideas to engage their teams. Daniel poses the statement that we are desired to crave exploration, experimentation and learning – he refers to a part of our brain as the “seeking system” that rewards us for taking part in these activities. Unfortunately, the way organisations are run prevents many of us from following our innate impulses – so we switch off. The book highlights practical ways managers and leaders can engage individuals and teams, including;

  • How to encourage people to bring their best selves to work and use their greatest strengths
  • How to build creative environments that motivate people to share ideas, work smarter and embrace change
  • How to enhance people’s connection to their work and customers
  • How to create personalise experiences that help people feel a deeper sense of purpose
