About this title

Synopsis:

The launch title in Sheed & Ward's new Spirit at Work series, Work with Meaning, Work with Joy is an honest, insightful, and challenging guide to working with meaning in any job. As a pioneer of the emerging spirituality and work movement, author Pat McHenry Sullivan has spent years interviewing thought leaders, studying trends in organizational development, writing articles, and consulting with individuals and businesses of all sizes. Here she brings together her vast hands-on experience and keen insights into a concise, helpful book that offers wisdom and inspiration as relevant to CEOs as they are to mailroom clerks and mid-level managers.

An ecumenical book that respects and draws from several relgious traditions and spiritualities, Work with Meaning, Work with Joy revolutionizes traditional ways of conceiving of work and offers practical tools for finding your true vocation, bringing faith and integrity into the workplace, creating balance, and achieving worklife excellence.

Filled with memorable stories and innovative ideas,Work with Meaning, Work with Joy also offers questions, resources, and ideas for further reading.

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.
