Jason Fox Use the science of motivation with the power of game design to unlock motivation and drive progress in your organisation. There are two conventional ways to approach motivation: set goals and try to change attitudes and beliefs (which takes a lot of personalised effort); or develop incentives and rewards to inspire effort (which takes a lot of money).
This book shows you how to take a third new approach - designing the work itself to be inherently motivating. Combining the best elements of three distinct fields - motivational science, game design, and agile management - this book shows you how to positively influence behaviour through better work and project design.
This game-changing book: Gives you a refreshing science-based approach to the classic challenge of motivation in the workplace and is ideal for any leader or manager looking to take their workplace culture in a new direction. The Game Changer includes practical advice for creating highly productive, motivated, and innovative teams.
Motivation strategy and design expert, Dr. Jason Fox, consults on leadership and change management to a wide range of clients - from the executives of multinational organisations, through to the directors of switched-on startups. The Game Changer will show you how to unlock creative, productive, and collaborative work. It is the perfect resource for forward-thinking leaders in organisations and teams focused on crafting a work culture that gets the best out of their people.
Jason Fox Unlock progress through doubt and uncertainty.
The biggest threat facing modern business is the sheer complexity of an uncertain future. That, and the fact that everyone is busy. Too busy for progress.
Workplace cultures have become cursed with efficiency. And so when it comes to developing strategy, we default to our defaults.
We favor quick fixes, easy templates, and familiar approaches, developing 'robust plans' that do little to mitigate strategic risk or generate new value. The result? The future comes, and businesses die.
But no longer! *cue trumpets* How to Lead a Quest is a book for pioneering leaders - folks who know that enterprise strategy is far too important to condemn to 'smart goals', 'a clear vision for the future', and other such rubbish. Within this book, you'll discover how to:
Liberate enterprise leadership and workplace cultures from the curse of efficiency, default thinking and the delusion of progress
Explore complex and uncertain futures to find profound insights that mitigate strategic risks and ensure your business model remains viable
Create new value and enduring relevance by pioneering into unchartered and unprecedented territory
Embed new structures and rituals into your enterprise to build for the future, while still delivering operational excellence today
Not for the faint of heart or short-of-wit, this uniquely refreshing book bravely tackles the paradox that is pioneering leadership. You'll discover how to lead meaningful progress - even if you don't know what the goal or destination looks like.
