REVIEWS

I warmly welcome this book on the new style of leadership, needed by organisations to survive and thrive in complex and volatile business environments. I could not agree more –it is all about people and their mindset!

Vlatka Hlupic, author of the award-winning The Management Shift Book

I am a big fan of self-management for workplaces. However, as a co-founder of a self-managed company, I get very impatient with books that overhype self-management and don’t spend enough time on how to get there and how to make it sustainable. Erik is a practitioner and it shows in this book. As he says, this book is not a ‘codex that you must follow dogmatically’. Better than that, the book is a platform for the mindset, habits, and practices to help you create a more humane and meaningful workplace, with more engaged and happier people. Go ahead and read it.

Matt Perez, co-founder, Nearsoft Inc

Excellent! Erik has written a book you can’t put down. He takes you by the hand and leads you safely through the vast amount of academic studies and leadership literature and presents his own very attractive and consistent framework on how to shift from the Yesterday of Work to the Future of Work – as a leader, as an organization, as a human. Erikmasters the art of inviting you into the world of uncertainty and gives you a map to navigate towards the rising sun. Hint: It’s all about people, curiosity and circular learning.

Jesper Rønnow Simonsen, Founder, NetworksPartners.biz, former chief executive officer in the Danish public sector

The Human Moment

Organizations are becoming increasingly dehumanized. The move toward an AI-driven world of work means intense competition for a finite number of ‘human’ resources where the pressure to perform can incite an “I’m fine” response when a colleague enquires into our wellbeing. Opportunities to connect authentically with or care for one other at a basic human level are diminishing, and we only know our colleagues superficially.

 This book argues that human connections are formed by showing vulnerability and sharing stories of suffering. Creating a culture of workplace compassion is an organizational imperative in the 21stcentury where suffering is hidden, stress-related absence is growing and career burnout is a recognized phenomenon. The Human Moment suggests that, by encouraging cultures of compassion, organizations can help to build healtheir workplace environments.

The Engagement Revolution

How engaged are your employees, really? Companies talk about ‘employee engagement’ and they accept its importance, yet strangely, they adopt out-dated methods when analysing and measuring this engagement. A leading engagement expert offers a new framework for taking the genuine pulse of a company – so that leaders and management can truly understand how their people are feeling and know what actions to take that result in better performance. Based on making results instantly and transparently available, and then determining with employees the real factors that lie within their feelings, managers can more easily assess the way they need to approach an issue. If, as the cliché goes, ‘people are a company’s greatest asset’, then ensuring their close engagement is essential for any company. This book argues powerfully for a radical new approach to employee engagement, based on understanding the minds and emotions of the people who work in organizations.
