Publisher's Summary

In a Results-Only workplace, employees can do whatever they want whenever they want, as long as the work gets done. No more pointless meetings, racing to get in at 9:00, or begging for permission to watch your kid play soccer. You make the decisions about what you do and where you do it.

It sounds like a fantasy, but Cali Ressler and Jody Thompson are leading a movement to make it a reality, even implementing it successfully at best buy. They show how a Results-Only Work Environment™ not only makes employees happier, but also delivers better results.

Filled with passion and common sense, their book will change the way you think about your job, your company, and your quality of life.

Revolutionary!

This approach to work is very unorthodox but can be extremely effective, worth a try!

Nothing new to me

While many of these ideas are awesome, I didn't find them new. Perhaps that is because I have worked in companies that avoided politics and hiring people who are not focused on results.

For people who are in larger slower or more traditional companies, this book would be insightful.

Possibly the worst read in the last decade

This book is arguably the most overrated rubbish I have ever had the misfortune of reading. This is a classic case of the authors not having very much to say at all so they drone on and on rehashing the same storyline chapter for chapter. There is nothing insightful, nothing meaningful and nothing worthwhile about this book. Possibly the worst investment in reading material I have made in a very long time.

Great concept, too many repeated points

I love the concept of the ROWE but felt that once it had been explained, too much time was spent on repeating the benefits.

Apparently it's possible that work can be a place where you're treated as an adult!

a great concept but

a great concept and some interesting and provocative thinking. just a shame they keep repeating the same thing over and over which makes the audiobook twice as long as it needs to be
