Shift The Work

70% of the American workforce is disengaged.

Tens of millions of people with glazed over eyes.
Tens of millions of people unplugged from their work.
Tens of millions of people dreading the work week.

We spend one-third of our lives at work. We believe those hours should count for something!

By bridging the connection between engagement at work and in life; this book aims to be the most powerful workforce engagement tool on the planet.
