Imagine a world where everyone can come to work as their authentically human, best selves. They feel fulfilled, supported, and cared for and have meaningful, purposeful work. At the end of the workday, they are able to bring their best selves home, be fully present with their loved ones, tend to their well-being, and replenish their well.

This vision is possible. And it is desperately needed!

Our rapidly changing world is becoming increasingly complex and disruptive. And while it brings many opportunities for innovation, it also triggers people to operate from a place of scarcity and self-protection, leading to disconnection and eroding well-being—on both the organizational and individual level. As a result, workplaces have become increasingly dehumanized and are now the fifth leading cause of death in the United States. We have a humanity crisis on our hands!

The good news is that there is a revolution already underway where organizations are breaking the mold and finding success by honoring what it means to be human and putting people first. In fact, research continues to emerge showing that human-centered organizations significantly outperform those operating from a "business-as-usual" approach. And the really good news is that this shift to rehumanize workplaces doesn't have to start with the C-suite—really! It helps but is not a deal-breaker. Culture ultimately resides at the local team level; and you can transform workplaces by focusing on one team at a time.

This book highlights how successful companies are thriving by putting people first. It details five key principles essential for rehumanizing workplaces; a framework to help restore hope, well-being, and performance; and tangible actions anyone can take to show up as a leader and influence positive change.
