Book Review: Digital Belonging by Yogesh Soni
An upbeat atmosphere is contagious and encourages both teamwork and individual efforts in problem solving. Innovative thinking is fuelled by the synergy of a team’s collective efforts and individual initiative. The all-important and necessary confidence in one another among co-workers is fostered in productive work environments, something that micromanagement can never supply, at least not for the long run. The focus of Digital Belonging by Yogesh Soni is on how to cultivate an environment that fosters creativity and collaboration inside your organization.
In Digital Belonging, Yogesh Soni integrates the most recent findings from the fields of motivation, creativity, organisational behaviour, neuroscience, and management to uncover the factors that actually contribute to our performance in our professional lives. Combining powerful stories with cutting-edge findings, Mr. Soni shows leaders at every level how they can use proven techniques to promote smarter thinking, greater innovation, and stronger performance. By emphasising the well-being and goals of workers, Digital Belonging infuses workplaces with a human touch that enhances performance.
This informative book claims, with backing from the most recent studies, that our best work is the product of a positive environment. Even while you can’t alter the corporate culture of the company on your own, you can influence the environment of the workplace and make changes that are significant and long-lasting. Examples taken from both big and small businesses illustrate how people-centric focus can unleash the latent potential of employees, boost levels of creativity within an organisation, and propel it to previously unachievable levels of performance. The book “Digital Belonging” provides a number of remarkably straightforward techniques and actionable plans that are meant to organise your efforts and turn employee optimism into not just a commendable objective but also a concrete and measurable outcome.
Brimming with counter-intuitive ideas and practical suggestions, Digital Belonging provides employees and managers alike with game-changing guidance for working smarter and converting any business—regardless of its size, resources, or goals—into an outstanding workplace. This is an incredible book, and it would be well worth your time to read it, whether you are just starting out in your career and trying to figure out what kind of organisation you want to work for, or if you are further along in your career and are responsible for the careers of people who work for you. This book has something to offer everyone. I believe that the majority of readers, regardless of their field of work, will find a great deal of value in the book.
