Editorial Review

Do More Great Work gets to the heart of the problem: Even the best performers are spending less than a fraction of their time doing Great Work —the kind of innovative work that pushes us forward, stretches our creativity, and truly satisfies us. Michael Bungay Stanier, Canadian Coach of the Year in 2006, is a business consultant who’s found a way to move us away from bad work (and even good work), and toward more time spent doing great work.
