9780091819583: Working from the Heart: How to Love What You Do for a Living

This book does not just pose the problems that anyone who works for a living can identify with, but provides exercises, questionnaires, and common-sense strategies to help do something about them. It examines traditional attitudes to work and a modern way to consider work.

This long-needed book is an interactive guide to a better way of working and having a more rewarding career. The author uses inspirational quotations, "real-life" examples and a series of exercises and questionnaires devised by business psychologists in order to guide the reader towards deeper self-understanding and more informed career choices. The emphasis is on enabling the reader to align their career with their personal needs; "working from the heart" rather than working purely to earn a living. Although the excellent psychology tests are fascinatingly self-revealing, and integral to the process of redefining the reader's work ethic, it is the warmth and enthusiasm of the author that give this extraordinary book the conviction which such an empowering book deserves.

Liz Simpson is a journalist and workshop facilitator whose own experiences in the world of work have led her to encourage others to find fulfilment in their jobs, whether by a change of career or by revitalising attitudes and enjoyment of current career choices. Her wide experience in this field enables her to bring a range of relevant and inspiring examples to the book, but it is her voice as an author which encourages readers to make the leap from reading to doing. --Claire Aloysia Ritson
