Overview

A recent Patterson and Kim business poll reveals that a shocking 90 percent of American workers are dissatisfied with their jobs - and that includes men and women on every imaginable rung of the corporate ladder! Now, finally, there's a book that speaks to the panic and desperation gripping people in all business sectors and levels - a book that shows them how to take back the power and control they have unwittingly ceded to the companies and organizations for which they work. Sounds impossible in today's harsh climate of corporate restructuring, cutbacks, outright firings, and heavier workloads? It's not, says career expert Diane Tracy! No matter what the nature and the cause of your unhappiness at work, Take This Job and Love It will arm you with a powerful four-step process you can use to replace career crisis with career satisfaction. To illustrate how career empowerment techniques can work in your life, the author weaves in the revealing stories of eight different people who are coping with common career dilemmas and resolving them in ways that provide both job security and self-fulfillment. With the help of their encouraging and illustrative examples, you'll learn how to achieve success without losing yourself in the process... use politics positively when they're needed to enhance your career... get a life when your job has become over-important and counter-productive to your happiness... and much more!
