Publisher's Summary

AUDIE Awards Finalist 2018

You work hard. You put in the hours. Yet, you feel like you are constantly treading water with "good work" that keeps you going but never quite moves you ahead. Or worse, you are mired in "bad work" - endless meetings and energy-draining bureaucratic traps.

Do More Great Work gets to the heart of the problem: Even the best performers are spending less than a fraction of their time doing "great work" - the kind of innovative work that pushes us forward, stretches our creativity, and truly satisfies us. Michael Bungay Stanier, Canadian Coach of the Year in 2006, is a business consultant who's found a way to move us away from bad work (and even good work) and toward more time spent doing great work.

When you're up to your eyeballs answering email, returning phone calls, attending meetings, and scrambling to get that project done, you can turn to this inspirational, motivating, and at times playful audiobook for invaluable guidance. In 15 exercises, Do More Great Work shows how you can finally do more of the work that engages and challenges you, that has a real impact, that plays to your strengths - and that matters.

Simplistic and basic.

I was hopeful for this book but it was very simplistic, basic and had nothing new that one would not know from basic planning and goal setting. I also thought the narrator was “talking down” and so found it hard to listen to. Stopped halfway through the book.
