Brave New Work 💪

We’re in 2022, yet the way we work dates back to the 1900s: working within complex systems and following strict rules and guidelines without any room for exploration or out-of-the-box thinking. Aaron Dignan dives deeper into how we work in Brave New Work— we’re taught to rely on the old, traditional way of working, simply because we’re taught to not trust the people we work with. In Brave New Work, you’ll learn all about why we work, how we work, and what the future of work can look like.

Nine Lies About Work 🤫

Did you know that less than 20% of global employees are engaged at work? In Nine Lies About Work by Marcus Buckingham and Ashley Goodall, they debunk nine of the most common lies told within an organization, and dig into what traditional organizations crave the most: control over their employees to make them work for what they want.

Think Again 💭

You don’t know what you don’t know— or do you know? In Think Again by Adam Grant, you’ll learn that we do have the power to reframe how we think about our interpersonal relationships, our personal lives, and our actions as a collective. You’ll learn about fallacies and biases, the four mindsets, the hierarchy of disagreement, and so much more to explore all of the paths that are necessary for our evolution. 🌱

Work Won’t Love You Back 💔

We all know by now that the phrase “If you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life” is complete BS, but why are some of us still preaching it? In a world that’s experiencing the worst burnout session of its life, Sarah Jaffe makes it pretty clear: devoting your life to your work will inevitably throw you into a loop of exploitation and exhaustion at a job you’re supposed to love. You’ll learn how the culture of working for passion > pay came to fruition and how we were all bamboozled into thinking this way.
