Egal ob Tellerwäscher, Investmentbanker oder leitender Angestellte, jede Arbeit kann unglücklich machen. Auch wenn die Karriere noch so gut geplant und den eigenen Interessen und Fähigkeiten entsprechend gewählt wurde, quälen sich viele Menschen jeden Morgen zur Arbeit um abends noch frustrierter nach Hause zu kommen. Bestseller Autor und Business-Guru Patrick Lencioni erzählt die unvergessliche Geschichte Brian Baileys, eines pensionierten Vorstandsvorsitzenden auf der Suche nach dem Sinn in seiner Arbeit und seinem Leben. -------- Als alle Mitarbeiter Platz genommen hatten, begann Brian Bailey. Er entschied sich, direkt auf den Punkt zu kommen, der ihm unter den Nägeln brannte: "Handzeichen bitte. Wer von Ihnen mag seinen Job?" Keine Reaktion. Die Mitarbeiter sahen ihn an, als hätte er russisch mit ihnen geredet. "Also gut", Brian grinste. "Dann muss ich wohl deutlicher werden. Okay, wie wär's damit: Wer findet die Aussicht, zur Arbeit zu gehen, schön? Wer hat gute Laune, wenn er hier ankommt?" Brian hätte genauso gut fragen können, ob sie gern ausgepeitscht werden wollten. Keine Hand ging hoch, der eine oder die andere lachte laut. -------- Auf einer ungewöhnlichen Reise, die ihn vom Vorstandszimmer eines angesehenen Unternehmens zu den Skipisten am Lake Tahoe und schließlich zur Bestellannahme einer Fastfood Kette führt, entlarvt Brian die drei Symptome, die jede Arbeit zu einer miserablen Angelegenheit machen können (Nichtmessbarkeit, Anonymität und Irrelevanz) und bietet Managern und Angestellten eine Lösung um sie einzudämmen. So versucht er Investmentbanker davon zu überzeugen, dass Arbeitszufriedenheit wichtig ist oder er motiviert den Pizzalieferanten freundlicher zu seinen Kunden zu sein. Sowohl für den Manager, der versucht Wettbewerbsvorteile zu schaffen und seine Angestellten zu motivieren, als auch für den Mitarbeiter, der nach persönlicher Erfüllung in seiner Arbeit sucht, bietet das Buch unmittelbare Linderung - und Hoffnung.

Der Autor arrangiert seine Gesichte der "positiven Energie" um die Metapher eines Busses, welcher sinnbildlich für das Leben eines jeden Einzelnen steht und stellt zehn konkrete Handlungsmaxime für ein positiveres und glücklicheres Leben vor. Um zu diesen Empfehlungen zu gelangen, begleiten wir George, der als Teamleiter bei einem Glühbirnenfabrikanten arbeitet. George hat nicht nur auf der Arbeit seinen Weg verloren. Als ehemals gefeierter Günstling seinen Chefs steht er mittlerweile nicht nur unter Dauerstress sondern auch auf der Abschussliste. Das wirkt sich auch auf sein Privatleben aus. Zu wenig Zeit für seine Kinder und zu wenig Zuwendung für seine Frau führen immer wieder zu Spannungen in der einst so harmonischen Beziehung. Seine Existenz ist nicht viel mehr als ein Scherbenhaufen. Bis zu dem Tag, als ihn ein platter Reifen zwingt, den Bus zu nehmen und er auf die Busfahrerin Joy trifft. Was er in diesem Moment noch nicht weiß: Joy und die Passagiere ihres Busses haben es sich zur Aufgabe gemacht, gescheiterte Existenzen wie George mittels zehn einfacher Regeln wieder auf den rechten Weg zu führen. Zunächst reagiert George sehr ablehnend, doch schließlich lässt er sich auf die "Behandlung" der ewig lächelnden Busfahrerin ein und kann schon bald erste Erfolge verzeichnen. Letzten Endes rettet die Fahrt im "Energy Bus" nicht nur seinen Job und seine Ehe, sondern macht ihn auch zu einem glücklicheren Menschen.
