Reserve your copy of the definitive book on company culture, The Best Job Ever

Based on a true story, The Best Job Ever shares a fast-paced fictionalized retelling of the transformation that happened at The Vested Group. Follow along with Steve, the CEO, as he wrestles with an organization that cannot seem to perform its best, and Carson, an employee who struggles to engage within the workplace, as he faces probation, challenging co-workers, and personal conflicts at home. When psychotherapist Dr. Susan arrives at the office to implement a new program, resistance to a coaching culture immediately arises—for both employees and leaders. Tensions heighten as the company culture sheds its old armor to become more transparent, more honest, and more resilient in the workplace. The characters may be invented in this fable, but the process, the results—and the numbers—are real.

After the story, get the straight talk about how we did what we did, and how you can do it, too. The Best Job Ever shares how The Vested Group transformed their company culture, using a step-by-step process that is backed by data and real testimonies.

Your company is built out of the people who work there. Make those people stronger—more successful, more authentic, and more resilient—so you can build a stronger, more resilient, more successful company.
