Joy and Success At Work: Building Organizations That Don’t Suck The Life Out Of People

Publication Date: February 2020

“I can’t wait to get to work” When was the last time you felt that way? Have you ever? Mark McClain has and still does. He and his leadership teams have focused on creating companies that make the quality of their employees’ work experiences of equal importance to the quality of the solutions those employees create. With Joy and Success at Work McClain has produced a manual that shares how he and his teams have done it—and how you and your team can, too. Speaking directly to the lack of fulfillment that too often accompanies work—with generous portions of humor and irreverence—Mark McClain deconstructs the modern business environment, then puts it back together. Shot through with pithy tales from his own experiences, Joy and Success at Work is Mark’s honest take on what team building can be, and done right, what it produces: Great places to work that support people’s broader lives, rather than sucking the life out of them.
