We spend most of our adult lives at work. We choose a job and a career, sometimes they seem to choose us, and whatever we do we want to enjoy it, find fulfilment and be good – don’t we?
How to Be Good at Work is building week by week into a live online book; a ‘livebook’ that is asking questions and finding answers about the big stuff like our purpose, values, decisions and actions that impact our daily lives and the lives of those around us.
This book is for you, to help you find even better ways to be good at work – to enjoy it, and, while I fill in the blanks, I invite you to contribute, as we develop ideas and learn from each other’s experiences together.
Read about the project in my Foreword. Staring with Love, each section looks at a different aspect of what it means to be good at work and is supported with papers and further reading plus, you’ll find guest writers and current insight and commentary. I hope you will find it useful, that you will want to contribute and share the ideas.
“Do not say a little in many words, but a great deal in a few.” Pythagoras
Following our first 10 episodes we now switch our attention to discussion around real life work place dilemmas, comment, guest essays and sharing with you thought provoking articles and third party resources that we find. In this way we will continuously be updating our content, posing questions and bringing you new voices and ideas around How to Be Good at Work.
We’ll also be preparing a print version… Interested? Contact us for details.

“Bosses want capitalism for themselves and feudalism for their workers” Matt O’Brien
“Most of us are fortunate enough to live in cultures that are more-or-less liberal, social democracies. We are equal in the eyes of the law and we all have a vote in who gets to lead us. But, when we come to work this reality changes. Unless we are part of a workers’ co-operative or partnership, we do not get to elect our leaders. We do not have a vote. And we are rarely treated equally.” Roger Steare
