Video description

Unlock the power of flexible work with this practical "how-to" guide from the leadership of Slack and Future Forum

How the Future Works: Leading Flexible Teams to Do the Best Work of Their Lives offers a blueprint for using flexible work to unlock the potential of your people. The book offers the steps necessary to building the new principles and guardrails to empower flexible, high-performing teams. And it teaches readers to lead with purpose, to manage and measure differently, and to believe that by letting go, they'll get more back than they thought possible.

How the Future Works explains how to: establish leadership principles, commitments, and outcomes for truly flexible teamwork; measure and assess productivity in a flexible workplace; reskill managers to ensure a level playing field for all employees; and implement the infrastructure necessary to make flexible work successful. Using original research from Future Forum, a consortium by Slack, and global case studies from leading companies such as Levi Strauss & Co., Genentech, Royal Bank of Canada, and IBM, How the Future Works offers concrete solutions and practical steps for building high functioning teams of talented, engaged people by providing them with the flexibility and choice they need to do their best work.
