We work in places, ways, and on things that were once the stuff of sci-fi flicks. Yet the reality is that most professionals are unhappy in their work.

Whether you want to reset your career, strike out on your own, or just ignite more joy in what you do, this Illuminating book shows you how to create a working life that reveals meaning while rewriting our collective future.

When we connect with something larger than ourselves, we enjoy the fruits of our labor as well as the journey - the sweat and the struggle. It's the unyielding commitment to a purpose that gives shapers their shimmer. The benefits of this shine are plentiful: enhanced well-being, more community engagement, a healthier economy, better work for all, and a more beautiful world.

Altman is a workologist who guides companies to leave politics and posturing behind in favor of transparent and trusting cultures. After decades facilitating culture-defining practices for leaders, you'll learn everything he knows:

  • Adopt the mindset for creativity, innovation, and boundless growth
  • Amplify your career and inspire others to do the same
  • Build fluid and engaged teams to work better together
  • Develop leadership skills with the five new modes for the 21st century
  • Learn what underpins the most resilient organizations in the world

The stories and anecdotes in Shapers come from hundreds of interviews with innovators dedicated to improving our outdated system of work. These trailblazers include CEOs, organizational designers, social psychologists, workplace strategists, and start-up entrepreneurs.

See your work from a whole new perspective and focus on what fulfils you. If you seek the freedom to approach work in your own unique way and become energized by what you do - then Shapers is your guide.
