Publisher's Summary

A compelling account of how incorporating play into work can help us overcome the uncertainty and turbulence that surrounds work.   

How can we learn to deal with uncertainty at work? The answer, as Dodgson and Gann eloquently portray in this pathfinding audiobook, is to learn from the adaptive behaviors of entrepreneurs. Play, the authors show, is a crucial component of this. It encourages exploration, experimentation, and curiosity, while it also challenges established practices and orthodoxies. It facilitates change in people and organizations.    

Drawing on in-depth interviews with entrepreneurs and innovators, this audiobook explains why we should incorporate play into work, what play looks like, and how to encourage playfulness in individuals and organizations.  

Dodgson and Gann identify four key behaviors that endorse, encourage, and guide play: grace, craft, fortitude, and ambition, and they provide a blueprint for an alternative way of working that fosters resilience and encourages innovation and growth in difficult times.

Boring book for a playful title

the reader voice is so boring, found myself falling a sleep with in 5 mins of the book every time. teaching nothing but saying being playful at work gives creative I do not reccomend buying this book. a waste of 1 coin.
