Drawing on years of original research, Gratton identifies three principles that people who glow live by. For each principle, she outlines three actions anyone can put it into practice, illustrated with dozens of examples and personal stories. If you can learn to glow, you will add tremendous value to your organization, and do so in a way that will make your work more satisfying and fulfilling.

Hot Spots: Why Some Teams, Workplaces, and Organizations Buzz with Energy - and Others Don′t
Sometimes within an organization, condensed periods of growth and innovation occur. For a short period of time, new ideas flow freely and cooperation and success attain levels that exceed all expectations. These periods are called " hot spots." This book takes a detailed look at how and why hot spots happen, and shows that it′s possible to create them.

In order to do so, entrenched rules about command and control must be discarded, since hot spots can′t be commanded, nor can they be controlled. Instead, they are a naturally emerging phenomena. But, that doesn′t mean that organizations have to wait for them to arise.

Gratton offers techniques and strategies that can create a more productive environment, one in which hot spots are anticipated, recognized, and embraced — an environment that carries the organization beyond its pre-set goals and boundaries and to new levels of growth and energy.
