Great Work

David Sturt

Great work lives inside all of us.

We’ve long been told our ability to succeed depends on our IQ, talent, education level, gender, job title, or when and where we were born. Great Work turns that conventional thinking on its head to reveal that innovation can come from anyone, anywhere.

Especially you.

With insights from the largest-ever study of award-winning work, Great Work reveals five practical skills that will help you ideate, innovate, and deliver work that gets noticed and appreciated.

Great Work is filled with stories of real people in real jobs who did what was asked and then added something extra–a personal touch all their own–to deliver better-than-asked-for results. Their stories will inspire you to write your own page in the book of human progress.
