Customer Review

on June 14, 2015
I've worked in the Fortune 200 space for three decades. And seen/led/participated in many "change initiatives", "re-engineering" , reorg, TQM, {fill in the blank} efforts. Most failed or produced a mediocre result. Working Out Loud is the first simple, crisp and cogent approach to how individuals in large organizations can begin to take control of their own careers and destiny I've seen. Most of these books (have read many) either approach the problem solely from the organizational design level or from the perspective of individual change. Working Out Loud links the individual to the group and the group to organizational results that benefit all three parties. The exercises are simple and WOL groups are easy to start (our firm has begun them).

At a higher level what John has done is provide (minus a lot of philosophical preachiness) a first of kind roadmap of how individuals should think and act in an economy that is increasingly dependent on webs of relationships, contributed IP, reciprocity and less so on the highly structured organizational design of traditional corporations. I'd highly recommend, whether you are an executive manager or a recent college graduate (or anything in between)
