Overview

Master Powerful Ways to Find Purpose, Fulfillment, and Greatness at Work!

Four great books show you how to find purpose, fulfillment, and greatness at work--no matter where you work or how fast your workplace is changing! Imagine the leaders of one of New York’s top real-estate firms coming together every Monday morning to hear…the moral and spiritual thoughts of a Rabbi. Wouldn’t you like to hear the paths Alan Lurie traced for his listeners, how he helped them bring together their spiritual and business lives, the sacred and the profane? Five Minutes on Mondays compiles these talks for the first time, sharing Lurie’s deep and profound inspiration on the challenges we all face--at work and in life. Lurie draws on millennia of philosophy, theology, and science to help us answer our deepest questions, comfort our deepest yearnings, and become better people: more connected to each other and to the Greater Purpose. Next, in Touchdown! Achieving Your Greatness on the Playing Field of Business (and Life), Dr. Kevin Elko shows how to build your success one brick at a time…so when it happens, it happens huge. America’s #1 performance consultant, Elko shares all he’s learned working with legendary athletes such as Emmitt Smith, championship coaches like Nick Saban, and thousands of the world’s top businesspeople. If you’re good, he’ll make you great. If you’re great, he’ll make you the best! Next, Four Secrets to Liking Your Work offers the first practical, start-to-finish program for transforming your work life: all the tools, tricks, ideas, examples, and proven research you need to make your work life more fulfilling and joyful, wherever you work--starting right now. Finally, in Your Job Survival Guide: A Manual for Thriving in Change, Gregory Shea, Ph.D., and Robert Gunther help you thrive amidst the challenges of your permanent “whitewater world” of change at work. Drawing on extensive research, they show how to protect your career, improve your resilience, and rediscover play and adventure as you “ride the workplace rapids.”

From inspirational business leaders, trainers, and authors, including Alan Lurie, Kevin Elko, Edward Muzio, Deborah Fisher, Erv Thomas, Gregory Shea, and Robert Gunther

These books seek to help readers to find fulfillment at work. Being a teacher, this is already a simple task in that I find fulfillment in the classroom, with my students everyday. However, this book showed me that even the tedious paperwork can be meaningful and how to deal with difficult situations and colleagues in the workplace. Reading these books even helped me to give advice to my friends who are having trouble at work. I highly recommend purchasing Making It Work At Work.
