"Humans aren't a resource to be bought, used and discarded - they are the point of the workplace, the life essence of innovation, growth and success."
From the bestselling author of Purple Cow and This Is Marketing comes an urgent manifesto for leaders facing unprecedented challenges in a rapidly-changing workplace.
The workplace has undergone a massive shift. Remote work and economic instability have depressed innovation and left us disconnected and disengaged. Paychecks no longer buy loyalty, happiness, and effort. Quiet quitting runs rampant, and people show up without truly showing up. Alarmed managers are doubling down on keystroke surveillance, productivity tracking and back-to-the-office mandates, when what they should be doing is the opposite - affording employees the dignity necessary to inject purpose and motivation into their work.
In The Song of Significance, legendary author and business thinker Seth Godin posits a new view of what industry leaders must do now. If you want your employees to live up to their full professional potential, you must give them the respect and autonomy they deserve as humans. The choice is simple: either keep treating your people as disposable and join in the AI-fueled race to the bottom, or build a significant organization that enrolls, empowers, and trusts employees to deliver their best work, no matter where they're working.
