Each week you can find further reading notes, downloadable PDFs and exercises to do with your team.
1 – Inside Microsoft’s cultural rebirth: [download the PDF] when the biggest company in the world slipped from its throne how did a new CEO try to rescue it using culture. What did Satya Nadella do? How did it succeed, how did it fail? What can any of us do to change our company culture?

I’m Bruce Daisley. I’ve spent my career working in media and technology companies like Twitter, YouTube, Google and Emap. Along the way I’ve become obsessed with making our jobs better, and how often we get it wrong. Eat Sleep Work Repeat is my attempts to escape the bad opinions that leaders bring to work culture – and to replace them with evidence and facts.
