How to Do Great Work Without Being an Asshole



ISBN: 9781786273918 Categories: ,

Paul Woods


It’s long been an accepted, almost celebrated, fact of the creative industries that long hours, chaotic workflows and egotistical colleagues are just the price you pay to produce great work. In fact, this toxic culture is the enemy of creativity, and with greater accountability and transparency in the industry?—?and more choice for young talent?—?than ever before, this unsustainable way of doing business is a ticking time bomb.

This is a straight-talking, fun read for all creatives: Director or junior, at an agency or client-side, working in design, advertising, publishing, fashion or film.

Packed with anecdotes, self-analysis flowcharts (are YOU the asshole?!), exercises and action plans for better working practices.

Simple strategies can easily be implemented to create a happier, more productive team and?—?importantly?—? BETTER WORK!.
