15. Finding Energy & Joy in Work With The Working Genius

It's easy to conflate the work you're "good at" with the work you should be doing. And it's so hard to prioritize the work that you may actually enjoy, because it doesn't feel like "real work."

As leaders, we spend so much of our time doing things that feel productive, but is it the most important and essential work that you can do? And can the work you enjoy and the work you should be doing overlap?

Imagine that every day you get to go to work and do exactly the kind of work you love; that gives you joy and energizes you? Now imagine that that's exactly the kind of work you SHOULD be doing in your company. 

Join us as Anna and Jill talk about The Working Genius, how we use it at Accrew, and how it's affected the way we view productivity at work.
