Advice abounds on how to dress for success, write a killer resume and land the next monster job. Now, in Is Your Genius at Work? Dick Richards takes career planning to a new frontier as he brings the "technology of the spirit" to the workplace, showing how ordinary people can make profound life changes and achieve extraordinary personal and career fulfillment. Drawing on the wisdom of modern sages, ancient philosophies, spiritual traditions, and 20 years of research and study, Richards has crafted a journey of self-discovery to help readers find the one core quality that fuels their soul and drives their success: their true genius.

Filled with practical strategies and hands-on exercises, Is Your Genius at Work? explores four important questions to help careerseekers define and give name to their genius, uncover the secrets to their life's purpose and chart a career path to bring their genius to life: What is your genius? Is your genius at work? What is your purpose? Is your genius on purpose?

    This is a serious self-help book which requires thoughtful effort on the reader¿s part, but promises a concomitant reward. Dick Richards urges you to find your genuine inner talents and spiritual beliefs, your ¿genius,¿ and to pursue them to find your career, your purpose and true fulfillment. However, the quest for genius is difficult to execute, though many successful people may have already completed this internal search and made genius-based career decisions without even knowing it. Richards is writing for those who have not. His audience is people who hold jobs that don¿t give them a sense of accomplishment or meaning. Richards spends a good bit of time explaining how people can find and name their genius, and perhaps not enough time telling them what they can do with it once that ¿eureka¿ moment has happened. As a result, we find that he articulates a noble goal but may leave some of its realization up to you. Then again, that seems valid: After all, no one can activate your genius for you. This book is useful for counselors and therapists, as well as for spiritually oriented readers who are willing to undertake serious introspection to refocus on their true gifts and purpose.
