Wrong Fit, Right Fit
Why How We Work Matters More Than Ever
We are in the midst of a crisis of commitment in the workplace—organizations are searching for engaged employees (“talent”) and employees are looking for a place to thrive. Both are struggling. If we fit, we hum, we connect, we create momentum and produce high-value work with grace and ease. But the wrong fit has serious consequences, including frustration, disengagement, and disruption, which undermines every aspect of daily work and the production of value.
Finding the right fit is hard. Painfully hard. The good news is, there is a way forward. Through his decades of experience and exhaustive research, including intensive interviews with knowledge workers and leaders, Dr. Martin guides talent and organizations to find the right fit. Through easy exercises, clear insights, and personal stories, this book helps readers discover their perfect fit in the workplace. And for employers, Dr. Martin utilizes policies, communications, training, onboarding, role descriptions, and feedback to help them build a new path to worker engagement. Wrong Fit, Right Fit is for both talent and employers who are looking for strong compatibility for mutual success.
Now is the time to boost engagement, inspiration, well-being, and meaning in the work we do. Now is the time to find a greater return in value for ourselves and our organizations. Now is the time to find the right fit.
