Now more than ever, companies and individuals are facing nearly impossible odds -- challenges so tough that nothing less than all-out magic is needed. Based on extensive research into the creative practices of great magicians from lore and history, like Merlin, Perseval, Casteneda's shaman-god Don Juan, even Tom Robbins's unquenchable cowgirl-magician Sissy, authors Pearson and Sievert analyze the five stages of the great magicians' education. From this research they show how one can begin to realize one's highest powers of creativity and effectiveness. The five stages of learning every aspiring magician must undergo: Hearing the call to magic, discovering the need for it in your life; Initiating -- or how to think freshly about a problem; Testing oneself and one's strength in the face of nightly challenges; Drawing a success out of failure; Sharing your powers as ancient magicians do in the practice known as "casting the circle." This is a handbook on how to work magic in your life. From rituals to actual magical practices adapted for use in the workplace, Magic At Work instructs and inspires. All can participate in realizing new imaginative heights that go far beyond any other guide to creativity. It not only talks about magic, it is, in substance and style, magic itself. Magic at Work: Camelot, Creative Leadership, and EverydayMiracles.
