Back to Human explains how a more socially connected workforce creates greater fulfillment, productivity, and engagement while preventing burnout and turnover. New York Times bestselling author Dan Schawbel guides the next generation of leaders to create a workplace where teammates feel genuinely connected, engaged, and empowered to grow strong interpersonal skills rather than relying on technology. Based on Schawbel’s exclusive research studies—featuring the perspectives of over 2,000 managers and employees across different age groups and from the US, UK, China, India, Brazil, and other countries—Back to Human reveals why electronic and virtual communication, though vital and useful, actually contributes to a stronger sense of isolation at work than ever before. The corporate cultures we are experiencing right now need to change, and Schawbel offers a new leadership model featuring the Work-Life Balance Myth (we should consider work-life integration instead, which creates more synergies between all areas of your life and puts you in control of how you allocate your time), Shared Learning (how sharing knowledge allows you to stay relevant despite industry disruptions), and more. Interviews with 100 leaders from notable companies including Facebook, Honeywell, HBO, Starbucks, General Mills, GE, Nike, American Express, Four Seasons, Walmart, TIME, LinkedIn, and the US Air Force. A self-assessment called “The Work Connectivity Index” that measures that strength of team relationships. Exercises, examples and activities that readers can work on individually, or as a team, which will help them improve their leadership skills. Tips and strategies on how to increase personal productivity, be more collaborative and become more fulfilled at work.
