Make Work Great (one person at a time)

Posted by on July 12th, 2010 with 2 Comments

Last week I received my copy of Ed Muzio’s new book, “Make Work Great“.

I’m a big fan of Ed’s work (writings, videos, and presentations), because he’s one of the few thinkers out there who is trying help individuals build a bridge between great tools and productive relationships.

Also, because he’s a great guy who happens to be a friend. Full disclosure: I acted as one of the ‘peer reviewers’ for “Make Work Great” last summer. I’m also the instructional designer for the companion one-day workshop.

Ed’s ‘Overtness’ framework – which combines overtness of task (purpose, impact, incentive, progress, resources, and capability) with overtness of relationships (clarity, questions, approach, and agreement) – is a powerful tool. This framework helped me look at what I do and how I interact in a new light.

Ed’s goal is to increase output – while reducing stress – in the workplace. This book points us in the right direction. I highly recommend you check it out.
