About this book

The essential introduces the New Work idea, the core of which is to pursue work that one "really, really wants". This approach is updated with regard to the three areas of individual, organization and society. Special consideration is given to findings from positive psychology and strength-oriented organizational research. With reference to examples and scientific findings, innovative working time models, organizational forms and management practices are presented. Finally, New Work is discussed in the context of progressive social ideas such as basic income, breathing life courses and post-growth.
