Alive at Work

Daniel M. Cable

Overview

At any given time, up to 70 percent of the population is unhappy with their current job. This can manifest simply as boredom, or more seriously as depression - a condition that can affect one's physical health as well. But should we just accept that work is not supposed to be enjoyable - or is there something that can be done?

Daniel M. Cable is a professor of organizational behavior at London Business School and specializes in organizational behavior, leadership, and employee engagement. Cable has worked with corporations around the world to help make work a place where people are engaged, excited, and fulfilled.

Using case studies, research, and in-depth interviews with managers, bosses, and employees, Cable debunks the physiological reasons why we dislike our jobs and reports the tested ways researchers have discovered to get back the motivation, interest, and purpose we're all capable of.

"Exploring, experimenting, learning: this is the way we're designed to live. And work, too. The problem is… thanks to the Industrial Revolution—when modern management was conceived—organizations were purposely designed to suppress our natural impulses to learn and explore."
