Morten Hansen: Great at Work
Morten Hansen is a management professor at University of California, Berkeley. He is the coauthor with Jim Collins of the New York Times bestseller Great by Choice and the author of the new book Great at Work: How Top Performers Do Less, Work Better, and Achieve More*.
The Six Tactics:
- Carve out the 15
- Chunk it
- Measure the soft
- Get feedback
- Dig the dip
- Confront the stall point
- Focus on one skill you want to prove.
- Meetings should only be for debate, not status updates.
- Having a coach is great, but often you can coach yourself if you only focus on one thing at a time.
