The Illusion of Work
Don't Fall For It
by Pat Maguire

Have you noticed a gap between the illusion of work being done in your office, and the actual output of those workers? Then it’s time to re-evaluate your methodologies. Streamline your work processes and become more results-oriented with The Illusion of Work. This book provides a unique perspective on the process of self-discovery, self-evaluation, and planning required to eradicate effort that’s only disguised as work. It’s a reality check for people at all levels of a company, whether you want to improve your own output or help your employees take their game to the next level. Through case studies and real-life stories, you’ll gain an actionable plan to effect change at your company. Business owners, leaders, and staff will gain the framework they need to analyze, create, and maintain a work environment where everyone understands the difference between work that’s meant to help achieve an end goal, and effort that just makes people look busy.

Pat Maguire is a certified coaching and sales mentor. He brings the experience of his 25-year career of sales successes to his clients, teaching them how to make changes in themselves and their staff. The issues and themes that are dealt with in this book are the very same ones he helps people work through every day. Now, he’s bringing that wisdom to a larger audience, sharing both his success and the learning moments where he fell down—and got right back up. Maguire lives in Orleans, a suburb of Ottawa, Canada’s national capital, where he shares custody of his two children.
