How to build a strong team culture without leadership support
Shaping the right environment comes down to thoughtfulness in four key themes—purpose, roles and responsibility, respect, and rituals. Here, we dive in-depth into each of them.

The notion of a company / brand calling their employees [x]’ers (ex: “IBM’ers”) has never sat well with me.

I get the C-suite’s desired sense of shared values and being one big team, but it’s always felt forced—branded property conformity—at the expense of anything inspiring.

How Slack ruined work | WIRED UK
“With email you know you probably have time to read through a bunch of messages and have a day to respond,” he says. “Slack is instant and we get a rewarding hit of dopamine every time we respond to someone or someone reaches out to us to let us know a member of our 'work tribe' needs us. It makes us feel valued and informed, but it also makes us fearful every time an alert comes in that we’ll be out of the loop or ill-informed if we don’t check a message, even though very few truly need our instant attention.”

The result is workers end up checking messages about work, rather than doing any, he surmises. The problem isn't necessarily Slack as a platform, but how people use instant messaging software. Beyond a loss of production, it has the longer term impact that users are either distracted by the tool or anticipating being distracted by it. The result is workers are increasingly finding it difficult to concentrate fully on the task they're doing.

The optimization trap: what you give up when you hustle - The Verge
In 2017, Ben Friedman, a Harvard economist, published a paper that explained why. “Keynes was right (so far) about output per capita, but wrong about the workweek,” he wrote. “The key reason is that he failed to allow for changing distribution. With widening inequality, median income (and therefore the income of most families) has risen, and is now rising, much more slowly than he anticipated.”

That means: we’re working harder for less now because the people who have more have so much more. The economy is optimized to push gains to the top. The whole point of personal optimization, on the other hand, is to increase your productivity in this system, to work harder in a way that mostly does not benefit you — at least not in the end.
