Bridge to an End: Short Stories about Today's Changing Workplace by Joe Cappello

A new manager tries to be open and receptive to his employees only to be put down by his boss who believes intimidation is the only way to lead.

Two managers fear for their jobs but come to the realization the only skills they have are tied to the very place that may put them into the street.

A salesman discovers that a customer he has been calling on for years is dying and he now has to deal with feelings he never knew he had.

Bridge to an End is a compilation of short stories about today’s workplace and our daily quest to make a living. We come to realize that work is not about meeting an insane deadline or collecting a paycheck every week; it’s about whom we encounter along the way and how those relationships develop over time. Every day we are challenged…to accept those we do not like, stand up to a boss who intimidates us or complete a project with someone whose beliefs are in conflict with our own. But over time we seep into each other’s pores and get to know what makes one another tick. Whether it’s loss, longing, or any other of life’s disappointments, we all suffer. What better place to make it all better by simply sharing a bagel on a Friday morning or a lunch with our colleagues than at work? It is a celebration of our common humanity as we stand side by side and grow with each other in age and, hopefully, in wisdom.
