Great at Work (2018) explores the dynamics of individual work performance and gets to the bottom of why some people perform better than others. The author, Morten T. Hansen, provides ample evidence to disprove the fallacy that only those with innate strengths and amazing natural talent can give superior performances. Instead, Hansen lays out seven key practices that anyone can immediately start using to be great at work.
