Transform How You Work in the Age of Entrepreneurship
—Jed York, CEO, San Francisco 49ers
Maynard Webb has always been the go-to guy when Silicon Valley companies have tough problems. Whether revamping eBay's crashing servers (transforming a potential technological disaster into a competitive strength) or investing in emerging technology start-ups, Webb brings strategic and operational savvy to every issue and venture. In his first book, Webb brings this same focus to tackle outdated models of work, created a century ago, which no longer sync up with either individual or employers' needs.
Through a unique framework that demonstrates how we can leverage technology to create better job opportunities and foster more balanced lives, Webb identifies four different mindsets around work—the Company Man or Woman, CEO of Your Own Destiny, the Disenchanted Employee, and the Aspiring Entrepreneur—which distinguish individuals who are self-motivated from those who are waiting to be discovered. By better understanding which of these mindsets best represents your own attitude and how to adapt and move from one frame to another, you'll gain the tools to become more self-actualized and ultimately more fulfilled in your career.
In identifying a paradigm shift that is already under way, Webb demonstrates clearly how everyone—employers and employees—can harness technology to become more productive at work, embrace personal happiness, and even spend more time with our families. With personalized worksheets and empowering action-oriented advice, Rebooting Work will help anyone reap the benefits of reimagining the way we approach work today.
