How do we make work feel less like work? What if the issue isn't good or bad culture, but the fit between our ideal way of working day-to-day and that of the companies we join. If we fit, we hum, we connect, we create momentum and do our best work with grace and ease. But wrong fit has serious consequences. It can erode performance, drive up frustration, and steal our competence and confidence.

The good news is, there is a way forward. And it's as simple as crafting the right fit.

Based on his decades of experience and exhaustive research, including in-depth interviews with knowledge workers and leaders from all walks of life, organizational psychologist Dr. Andre Martin guides employees (talent) and organizations to create right fit.

Through compelling exercises, clear insights, and personal stories, Dr. Martin helps talent uncover the kind of place where they can thrive and where work can be, well, less work. And for organizations, Dr. Martin utilizes social science research, innovative practices from progressive companies big and small, and practical day-to-day leadership tips to help them rediscover their secret sauce and create more clarity and opportunity for their talent.

Wrong Fit, Right Fit is for both talent and companies who are looking to build more energy and commitment in the day-to-day. Now is the time to boost engagement, inspiration, well-being, and meaning in the work we do. Now is the time to find a greater return in value for ourselves and our organizations. Now is the time to find right fit.
