Maynard Webb inspired me with the ideas behind his new book, Rebooting Work: Transform How You Work in the Age of Entrepreneurship, last night at Santa Clara University. He’s been involved with the transformation of eBay, the transformation of call centers via LiveOps (where he’s Chairman and past CEO), and now the transformation of mentoring through the start-up Outside Counsel.
He opened with something I see everyday: Our work outside the organization’s walls is more social, more technically sophisticated, and often more productive than the work done inside the walls. As a result, work satisfaction and organizational commitment is down. “What we have outside of work makes the inside of work look stodgy.”
