From the Author:

Common workplace stories today treat values like compassion and integrity as "soft stuff" that disrupt sound business practice. Behind closed doors or off site, however, comes a richer story.

People from all faiths, from all levels of the corporate ladder, say that when they bring spirit to work, they bring their wisest self. As a result, stress melts. They see more clearly what’s essential and what’s not.

When people are grounded in spirit, they can see how to meet a corporate bully as a comrade. They gain the strength they need to face their own faults. They find the courage to confront unethical practices and the creativity to help build a new cultured based in integrity.

This book is filled with stories and resources. It includes what I learned when three relatives were dying across country and my husband was out of work. Prayer led me to reach out to co-workers. They shared with me workday spiritual practices they had never discussed with anyone else. By following the guidance of prayer and the wisdom of co-workers, I learned how to work efficiently all day and come home with more energy at night than I’d had in the morning.

Work takes up most of our waking lives. This book may not help change that. But this book can help you remember why you work and bring your whole self to your tasks. Whenever you do this, the workday is bound to be more satisfying.
