A 2005 survey by the Families and Work Institute found that one in three Americans is chronically overworked. The authors surveyed 20,000 executives, managers, and staff from companies all over the world on a variety of core business issues.
Arising from the survey, this is not a “business as usual” business book. It is a primer, a practical, down-to-earth user’s manual that provides pertinent and powerful techniques for coping with conflict, pressure, and change – the three greatest stressors for workers worldwide.
It begins with a self-assessment, “The Prosperity at Work Index,” which helps you determine to what extent you have the three abilities they discovered that lead to satisfaction and success at work.
It goes on to offer a wealth of insights, tips, and suggestions – supported by real-life examples from the authors’ decades of experience – for attaining and improving your “prosperity skills.”
- Engage your inner resources to create a meaningful work life.
- Master the ‘smart people’ skills for facing difficult people and tense times.
- Focus your energy on what matters most and avoid the lure of the trivial.
- Design a work makeover to accelerate your satisfaction and productivity.
