Great At Work: How Top Performers Work Less and Achieve More, Morten Hansen

Simon & Schuster

This deceptively simple question continues to confound professionals in all sectors of the workforce. Now, after a unique, five-year study of more than 5,000 managers and employees, Morten Hansen reveals the answers in his “Seven Work Smarter Practices” that can be applied by anyone looking to maximize their time and performance.

Hansen codifies the most actionable insights from his research to show how we can work smarter instead of harder by selecting a few activities and applying intense targeted effort, and highlights stories of individuals from all walks of life who have done this. You’ll meet a high school principal who engineered a dramatic turnaround of his failing high school; a rural Indian farmer determined to establish a better way of life for women in his village; and a sushi chef, whose simple preparation has led to his restaurant (tucked away under a Tokyo subway station underpass) being awarded the maximum of three Michelin stars.

Each chapter contains questions and key insights to allow you to assess your own performance and determine your work strengths, as well as your weaknesses. Once you understand your individual style, there are mini-quizzes, questionnaires, and a strategy to become a more productive worker. Extensive, accessible, and friendly, Great at Work will help you achieve more by doing less.

Jim Collins

“In this groundbreaking book, Morten Hansen delivers on the genius of “and:” rigorous and relevant, research-driven and well-written, empirical and empowering, timeless and practical, full of big concepts and useful tips. Hansen’s work is truly distinctive in the genre of professional effectiveness, and a tremendous contribution. This is a book I will read more than once, and reference forever.”

“The typical book about management or careers requires a heavy dose of faith because you don’t know where the recommendations come from. Morten Hansen brings beautiful data from a massive research project that reveals how stars at work, in dozens of industries, actually do their work. The data and Hansen’s analysis will surprise you, change you, and make you better at work… no leaps of faith required.”

Carol Dweck

“Some managers and employees are star performers. We’ve always wanted to know why, and now Morten Hansen tells us. It’s not because they work longer or harder than everyone else. It’s because they adopt a ‘growth mindset’ and find ways to work smarter. This magnificent study of over 5,000 employees reveals exactly what these stars do and is a landmark contribution to understanding the roots of professional success.”
