From the Back Cover:

"A perceptive guide"--Publishers Weekly

If you feel drained and debilitated at work, or your work doesn't fulfill your creativity, you may be among the 20 percent of the population who are overwhelmed by job pressures. The Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) is often intelligent, imaginative, empathetic, and hyper-aware of surroundings. This sensitivity is part of being passionate about work. But it can also make being in the work force a painful trial.

Based on cutting-edge research and extensive interviews with hundreds of HSPs, Dr. Barrie Jaeger tackles the problems and issues highly sensitive people face--including feeling overwhelmed by work pressures, overstimulation in the workplace, and lack of confidence. Building on the groundbreaking national bestseller, The Highly Sensitive Person, she explains why traditional work doesn't work for you--and what you can do about it. Dr. Jaeger provides proven strategies to find work you can embrace, not just endure, including:

  • Identifying particular aspects of any job that contribute to unhappiness
  • Avoiding certain jobs that don't work for HSPs and what to do to get out
  • Finding your true calling--and how to let a calling find you--and discovering work that brings joy, creativity, and the greatest level of satisfaction.

Jaeger also includes exercises, ways to take breaks (vital for stress relief) and provides helpful personal assessment features. Making Work Work is an owner's manual for highly sensitive people who want to discover how to love what they do--and do what they love.

About the Author:

Barrie Jaeger, Ph.D., is known as "The Self-Employment Doctor" and "Work Purpose Coach." She presents seminars and workshops on workplace issues for the HSP. Barrie contributes articles on work to the Comfort Zone, a newsletter for the Highly Sensitive Person, published by Elaine Aron.
