The Great Work Study is the primary source of the five skills discussed in the New York Times bestselling book, Great Work: How to Make a Difference People Love. Designed to help define “great work” and test the hypothesis that there are specific skills that anyone can practice to increase the odds of producing great work that others love.
The Great Work Study focused specifically on actions that led to Great Work, the book, rather than using the traditional approach of looking at personality traits of high achievers. In this white paper, we’ll share details on the four complementary research components the results were taken from:
- The Executive Omnibus Survey
- The O.C. Tanner Study of Award-Winning Work
- The Forbes Insights Survey
- One- on-One Interviews
