We Are Still Human by Brad Shorkend and Andy Golding

Does your job make you feel worthless, miserable, depressed and anxious, sick to your stomach, suicidal, angry?

When the authors, Brad Shorkend and Andy Golding, typed in the words ‘my job makes me’ on Google these are prompts they received because so many people had previously searched all of these that Google assumed they were going to as well. Consider how many millions of people need to have typed in these particular statements relating to their jobs for this to occur?

Are you feeling uncomfortable as you read this? Either because you feel the same way, or because you lead, own or work in a business full of people and if you’re brutally honest with yourself you may realise that this is quite possibly exactly how they feel.

Engagement surveys and culture assessments aside, do you really, truly, honestly know what experiences the people inside your business are having? Do you have any tangible or quantifiable measure for how much this may be enhancing or diminishing your business bottom line?

Most importantly, do you know what to do to meaningfully impact this? To create that work doesn’t suck! (step 1) And even better, is AWESOME! (step 2).

Your mission is to now inhale, and then digest the concepts, ideas, models, mutterings, stories and tactics on the pages of We Are Still Human, and become a CBA, a Company Behaving Awesomely.
