Here's a passage from the introduction of the book, Human Work: Five Leadership Mindsets for Humanizing the Workplace, written by Leanne Holdsworth and Naryan Wong.

What if the best workplace we’ve ever experienced is just a fraction of what is possible? Dare we dream of something so far beyond "business as usual" that it feels like a fantasy? ...to venture past the workplaces of the past and into the unknown to imagine and create something recognizably different. To create Truly Human work.

If you’re a regular listener of this podcast, you probably know that there is a better way to work than what we’re traditionally accustomed to. That there is a better way to lead and it affects so much more than just our work lives.

And what Leanne and Naryan are trying to do in Human Work is to illustrate the extraordinary possibilities when you create workplaces centered on care, connection and collaboration. When you go beyond "business as usual."

And maybe it start with a change of your leadership mindset.

Leanne and Naryan are both part of the Human Work Network and you can find out more about it and them and their book here.

On this podcast, we’re going to talk about the five leadership mindsets mentioned in their book’s title. But we’re going to start off the conversation today with Naryan and Leanne addressing the very question asked in their introduction: What if the best workplace we’ve ever experienced is just a fraction of what is possible?
