I don't mean that work doesn't exist and that we should all just drop what we are doing and quit our jobs. In fact, far from it. When I say "work as we know it is dead," I'm specifically referring to the assumption that employees are cogs, managers are slave-drivers, and work is drudgery -- these by the way, are all synonyms you can find in the dictionary. This mentality that we are all cogs working for a slave-driver as we go about our daily drudgery is exactly what I mean when I say "work as we know it is dead."
This idea has been a bit of a recurring theme in my latest book on The Future of Work, and is something that I am quite passionate about. I wanted to share a short ebook or manifesto on this topic which summarizes this concept. It's completely free for you to read, download, and share. Enjoy!
