While we may learn fundamental knowledge for our given professions in school, another set of often-overlooked skills is just as important when building a rewarding career in any field. Tech entrepreneur Beck Besecker calls them good work habits—and the toolbox in your hands holds thirty years’ worth he’s collected. Good work habits are personal systems we all need to navigate the workplace to organize ourselves, communicate effectively, and work well with others. These timeless tips are more important than ever. Besecker includes remote applications for these topics, recognizing that today’s rapidly evolving work environment often lacks the structure of an office and the personal development that happens there.
Not unlike various drill bits, wrenches, and screwdrivers, you’ll find this toolbox contains tried-and-true techniques, frameworks, and advice. Some tools you may only use once every few years, but they’re key to succeeding in pivotal moments. Your Good Work Habits Toolbox is an invaluable asset that will help you throughout your own career and as you mentor others. Start building your reliable toolbox now.
"As long as I’ve known Beck, he’s been obsessed with how to help others advance in their careers. 'Success isn’t real unless shared' is more than a tenet he’ll impart, but a mantra he lives by. In Your Good Work Habits Toolbox, Beck has taken aim at teaching lessons and frameworks that we don’t learn in college and might take years to accumulate on the job. It’s quintessential Beck. He doesn’t care about fancy-sounding jargon. He gets down to what counts. He focuses on what works. And he does it with heart."—Josh Linkner, five-time tech entrepreneur, New York Times bestselling author of Big Little Breakthroughs, venture capitalist
“I was introduced to Beck while watching MSNBC’s Squawk Box in 2016 at the very dawn of the emerging field of virtual reality. That day I found myself driven to meet this extraordinary entrepreneur. In the years since, I’ve watched Beck develop and share his Good Work Habits Toolbox. Today I often ask aspiring founders to spend time with Beck for his counsel. Everyone will take something from this book. A careful read will help you and others achieve personal and company goals. Enjoy!”—Lee Arnold, executive chair, Colliers International; CEO, LA Financial; venture investor
“I wish I had this book on day one of my professional career. I would have avoided costly mistakes, advanced my career faster, and been better positioned for future success in life. The lessons that Beck has taught me over the years have allowed me to excel both professionally and personally. Beck’s decades of building successful businesses and thriving teams provides trusted practical advice for both the seasoned business professional and those just starting in their careers."—Jessi Sparks, vice president of strategy, Magnetic Mobile
“If you are lucky, you’ll have the opportunity to work for someone who will take you on a life-changing professional journey. Beck has been that person for me. He is both a student and an artist in life and in leadership, an authentic and uncommon leader whose satisfaction comes from watching the people around him succeed.”—Sonia Schechter, CMO of Marxent
