  • How Italian manufacturing unit employees diminished their nervousness a couple of new strategy via fiddling with Legos
  • How staff at Make-A-Wish diminished burnout by way of crafting their very own activity titles

Filled with real-life examples from the author's personal learn and consulting, Alive at Work equips managers--and someone seeking to locate extra pleasure of their nine-to-five existence--with the counsel to maximise the interest and keenness that lives inside themselves and others.
