The new energy bible,
This review is from: The Way We're Working Isn't Working: The Four Forgotten Needs That Energize Great Performance (Paperback)
Having followed Schwartz/Gomes/McCarthy Energy Project for some time I am intrigued as to the impact this book will make on organisations and the individual. Broken down simply the concept is that time is finite, so the route to increasing capacity is through a managed approach to our energy needs. Whereas previous attempts at the subject have honed in solely on the physical and nutritional aspects; this book looks far beyond this demonstrating that energy can be optimised not just by our physical state, but also by our emotional one.
Life changing - potentially! I can commend this book to any individual seeking a way to avoid "Burn out" and increase their energy. For them this should be more than a "good read", it probably needs to become a "bible".
However, where the real power of this book could be harnessed is for an entire organisation to embrace the philosophy. It's been tried, but to my mind no organisation has yet created an energy optimised work force. Maybe just maybe this book may provoke some company to give it a real go - there's a competitive advantage out there for anyone who can successfully adopt it.

Hi, just thought you might want to look into Sony Europe - I previously working with Jean Gomes (co-author), dpa and the Energy Project (UK) and Sony Europe were putting almost their entire European workforce through the training in an attempt to create the 'energy optimised work force'. They've made a lot of internal changes to, in order to support their staff in the adoption of the techniques/practices. Just thought you might find it interesting...
