9780060751784: Making Work Work CD: New Strategies for Surviving and Thriving at the Office

Maintaining control in today's hectic workplace is a challenge -- everything is lean, competitive, and uncertain. What does it take to survive? Must you sign away your life in blood? Live in fear of being fired? Quit your job and move to the countryside? Not at all.

Through the mastery of nine essential skills, Morgenstern shows how small changes in your thinking and behavior will help you achieve the seemingly impossible -- boost your value, increase your job security, and afford you the time to still have a life. Morgenstern has helped clients of all levels take control of their work lives in every industry imaginable. This book mirrors the individual consulting services she provides by showing you how to start with yourself and then tackle the more complex external issues of working relationships and the job.

With insight and warmth, Morgenstern gives fresh "grab-and-go" strategies such as:

  • Avoid e-mail for the first hour of the day. It's addictive and steals your most productive time.

  • Trust your truth. Never undervalue your unique self, skills, and point of view.

  • Beware multitasking. Scattering your efforts makes for a longer day.

  • "Dance close to the revenue line." Making and saving money is where your greatest value lies.

  • "Crunch the container." Shorten your workday by thirty minutes and you will get more done.

Making Work Work transcends industries, job titles, and even economic climates. With the process taught in this book, you will feel less trapped and more in charge -- you'll able to make a bad situation better, restore a formerly good situation, or search for a job that's a better fit for who you are.

With Morgenstern's guidance you can find a way to make work work.

From AudioFile:

Focusing on what happens at the office, the organizing and time management expert reads a smooth essay on the mental and behavioral skills needed to achieve your highest goals. First make a career choice that works for your whole self, not just your compulsive, overachieving working self. Advice and skills such as prioritizing tasks, creating time, anticipating change, delegating, avoiding time nibblers, working with others, and leveraging your strengths are organized into 34 "grab-and-go" strategies that are spaced throughout the program. In this audio, the veteran organizer has assembled the perfect balance of principle and practice. It's sure to become the audio equivalent of the dog-eared Bible, read every day by working people around the world. T.W. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
