Joy Works

Video description

In Joy Works, Alex Liu delivers an engaging blueprint for ensuring people feel safe and inspired at work. In the book, you'll find a step-by-step action plan for approaching joy at work using the three key drivers that determine employee happiness-people, praise, and purpose-and learn how to implement that plan for maximum results and maximum joy.

The author demonstrates how to create more joy for your people at work, in both virtual and in-person environments, as well as how to incorporate joyfulness even in periods of dramatically heightened stress. Listeners will learn from a diverse collection of leaders, from psychologists, academics, athletes, nonprofit and board leaders, and a Broadway producer, to leaders at companies including HPE, Cisco, T-Mobile, SAP, and UPS. In the dialogues and research, listeners will also find: an introduction to "ikigai," a Japanese concept meaning "reason for being"-a framework we can all use to find joy and meaning in our work; an investigation into the link between social justice and joy; a new perspective on how the next generation will view joy at work, the Great Reflection, and the shifting balance of power in work cultures; in-depth discussions about people, purpose, and praise: the three key elements in building a joyful work experience; and a call for more reflective leadership.
