Great at Work

Morten T. Hansen

Overview

Morten Hansen is one of the authors of Great By Choice, the result of a 9-year study on what makes companies great. But, after writing that, he still had a question on his mind: why do some individuals perform better than others?

He recruited a team and launched one of the biggest research projects on individual performance at work ever. They collected tons of data about how people work and what results they get, then analyzed it statistically.

The group found that seven "work smart" practices account for high performance at work. They then organized the results into a validated framework that anybody can use.

In Great At Work: How Top Performers Work Less and Achieve More, Hansen explains these seven principles, with examples from the lives of the 5,000 people that he and his team analyzed. He also suggests you think of it as "a complement to Stephen Covey's 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, updated to reflect the realities of work today."
