Cali Ressler and Jody Thompson are best-selling authors, and co-creators of the Results-Only Work Environment™ (ROWE™). Their first book, Why Work Sucks and How to Fix It, was named “The Year's Best Book on Work-Life Balance" by Business Week. Their second book, Why Managing Sucks and How to Fix It is the field guide for how to manage work in the 21st century. They have been featured on the covers of BusinessWeek, Workforce Management Magazine, HR Magazine, Hybrid Mom Magazine, and HR Executive Magazine as well as in the New York Times, TIME Magazine, USA Today, and on Good Morning America, CNBC, MSNBC and CNN.
Cali and Jody are also the Co-Founders of CultureRx®. Through the training process created by Thompson and Ressler, and owned by CultureRx, managers learn how to manage in the 21st century, and teams understand they will be evaluated on performance, not time or presence. In ROWE™ Certified organizations, people focus on results and only results – increasing productivity levels while setting the foundation to attract and retain the best talent. The training they've developed is employed globally and is increasing productivity levels, employee engagement, customer satisfaction, and retention in organizations.
Cali and Jody are nationally recognized keynote speakers and have presented to numerous Fortune 500 companies and prominent trade associations. They developed ROWE based on the belief that the traditional model of how we approach work is fundamentally broken. They believe that twentieth century management strategies are not the answer for managing a workforce that's tackling today's complex business challenges.
