A Fresh Perspective for Monday Morning
Monday morning can be a drag -- work is, after all, a 4-letter word ending in K. This book offers a fresh perspective on the process of earning your paycheck. It shows how gossip at the water cooler, the domineering coworker, the efficiency expert, or asking for a raise can all be part of your spiritual journey. I found the illustrations, charts, and diagrams particularly helpful to me. If you're burned out on your work environment, or just want to see old things at work in a new way, give this book a try.
Difficulties, an exercise for the hero
Work can be exceptionally frustrating; heavy workload, changing priorities and responsibilities, demanding customers, fickle bosses, co-workers that don't do their fair share of the work, not to mention the constant fear of getting laid off. Ms. Hubbard's book gives the reader a different way of looking at things. You are empowered to be a hero (instead of a victim) and make a difference despite the difficulties. You learn to see the difficulties "as an exercise for the hero". This way of looking at things will most likely make you a more effective employee and happier person.
Bring Your Soul to Work
Americans spend much of their waking time at work and yet rarely consider the opportunities for personal growth that work presents. Dr. Hubbard suggests that we see work as an avenue for character development by acting as the hero, rather than the victim, of our work circumstances. Drawing from mythology as well as her personal experience as a trainer, consultant, supervisor, and employee, Dr. Hubbard guides the reader through the ten stages of the heroic workplace journey. This book is concise and readable and contains questions and exercises that help bring the message alive for readers. Work as a Heroic Journey contains valuable lessons for anyone on the spiritual path.
