豆瓣评分: 8.9


Forget what you know about the world of work You crave feedback. Your organization's culture is the key to its success. Strategic planning is essential. Your competencies should be measured and your weaknesses shored up. Leadership is a thing. These may sound like basic truths of our work lives today. But actually, they're lies. As strengths guru and bestselling author Marcus Buckingham and Cisco Leadership and Team Intelligence head Ashley Goodall show in this provocative, inspiring book, there are some big lies–distortions, faulty assumptions, wrong thinking–that we encounter every time we show up for work. Nine lies, to be exact. They cause dysfunction and frustration, ultimately resulting in workplaces that are a pale shadow of what they could be. But there are those who can get past the lies and discover what's real. These freethinking leaders recognize the power and beauty of our individual uniqueness. They know that emergent patterns are more valuable than received wisdom and that evidence is more powerful than dogma. With engaging stories and incisive analysis, the authors reveal the essential truths that such freethinking leaders will recognize immediately: that it is the strength and cohesiveness of your team, not your company's culture, that matter most; that we should focus less on top-down planning and more on giving our people reliable, real-time intelligence; that rather than trying to align people's goals we should strive to align people's sense of purpose and meaning; that people don't want constant feedback, they want helpful attention. This is the real world of work, as it is and as it should be. Nine Lies About Work reveals the few core truths that will help you show just how good you are to those who truly rely on you.

@ 阿飞正传 This book speaks to me on so many levels. 3 key takeaways:1.Identify what we are great at and horn that unique ability, better than working on our weaknesses.2.Know what we love to do and find it at work, then we will never struggle with work life balance.3.Leaders are those who have spikes, and people follow them because of that. @ 未时 有所启发,有观点碰撞。 @ freesiasalome 十月十一月在地铁上在办公室的读物。开天眼,破迷津,反内卷斗士如我的must read @ phoebesheng 这本应该是我今年的年度最佳预定!这本书的每一个lie都那么的熟悉,每一个场景每一句话都那么熟悉,简直就是企业里每天面对的日常事务的场景复刻。剖析的部分一针见血,在人才管理的痛点上反复踩踏横跳。解决问题的建设性意见在操作性上弱了些,但是已经很不错了。强烈推荐给管理者和hr们。 @ 小火苗燃烧 这是一部很拓展思维方式角度的书,真的很值得一读。除了第三条没有特别强烈的共鸣,12456789真的是不能同意更多!最后的truth那一篇值得刻进肺腑。关于领导力的部分真的是,太众说纷纭了,太喜欢书里说的应该从跟随者的感受来看领导力。道虽不同,但结果有异曲同工之妙!
