TLC Book Tours: Eat Sleep Work Repeat

About Eat Sleep Work Repeat

• Hardcover: 320 pages
• Publisher: HarperOne (February 25, 2020)
“An important reminder of simple everyday practices to improve how we all work together, which will lead to greater team and individual happiness and performance. Great results will follow.”—Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter and Square
“With just 30 changes, you can transform your work experience from bland and boring (or worse) to fulfilling, fun, and even joyful.”—Daniel Pink, author of When and Drive
The vice president of Twitter Europe and host of the top business podcast Eat Sleep Work Repeat offers thirty smart, research-based hacks for bringing joy and fun back into our burned out, uninspired work lives.
How does a lunch break spark a burst of productivity? Can a team’s performance be improved simply by moving the location of the coffee maker? Why are meetings so often a waste of time, and how can a walking meeting actually get decisions made?
As an executive with decades of management experience at top Silicon Valley companies including YouTube, Google, and Twitter, Bruce Daisley has given a lot of thought to what makes a workforce productive and what factors can improve the workplace to benefit a company’s employees, customers, and bottom line. In his debut book, he shares what he’s discovered, offering practical, often counterintuitive, insights and solutions for reinvigorating work to give us more meaning, productivity, and joy at the office.
A Gallup survey of global workers revealed shocking news: only 13% of employees are engaged in their jobs. This means that burn out and unhappiness at work are a reality for the vast majority of workers. Managers—and employees themselves—can make work better. Eat Sleep Work Repeat shows them how, offering more than two dozen research-backed, user-friendly strategies, including:
Go to Lunch (it makes you less tired over the weekend)
Suggest a Tea Break (it increases team cohesiveness and productivity)
Conduct a Pre-Mortem (foreseeing possible issues can prevent problems and creates a spirit of curiosity and inquisitiveness)
“Let’s start enjoying our jobs again,” Daisley insists. “It’s time to rediscover the joy of work.”

  I don't read too many books in the "self help" genre, but was intrigued by this one! While I enjoy my job, I certainly feel the stress from it and figured some tips wouldn't hurt. I was very impressed with this book--it was well researched yet easy to follow, and I really like the "next steps" section at the end of each chapter that provide some key takeaways. The book is formatted well--it covered things you can do as an individual in the Recharge section, and ways to improve your team overall in the Sync and Buzz sections. It draws from fields such as psychology, economics and business, and shows the evidence and science behind why you should do things like "having a monk mode morning" and actually taking your lunch break. I definitely recommend this to anyone, especially those, like me, who are settled in their careers but are feeling the stress and need to re-energize a bit. A great book to have in your office to refer back to as well!
