In today’s episode we review Marie Kondo and Scott Sonenshein’s new book, Joy at Work, Organizing Your Professional Life.
In Joy at Work, Marie and Scott use the KonMari method to bring more efficiency, productivity and even joy to the work place.
The book was released during probably one of the most monumental events in modern times, in the middle of a life altering pandemic, which has found most of us re-defining our roles in our community, at home, and at work.
