New Book: Happiness And Joy in Work

“Happiness And Joy in Work”

Happiness and Joy in Work: Preparing for Your Future by Ruth Schimel PhD gives you the tools and inspiration to become your own expert during these times of continuing, accelerating change.  This book shows you how to imagine, express, and connect with what you want and need.  By seeing how to integrate your unique potential, interests, and abilities, you’ll have customized strategies to clarify directions that suit you better now and prepare you for new situations over time.  Within the book’s holistic design, you’ll also find encouraging, manageable choices for action to create and add meaning and purpose in your work and other efforts.

The graphic above reveals how the book’s three interactive themes join to promote your engagement as well as happiness and joy in work:

  • Lifelong Learning: connecting goals, interests, information, and experiences, benefitting your professional value and situations
  • Soft Skills: using their power for effective interactions and outcomes, as you define them
  • Technology: anticipating, influencing, and participating in current and emerging technological advances

Drawing on a range of topics from the humanities, arts, and sciences, Happiness and Joy in Work: Preparing for Your Future provides wider horizons and choices for learning and earning your living.  Enjoyable ways to expand your skills and abilities include telling stories, coloring images, and sketching.  Expect to spark your curiosity and enrich your intuition with both optimism and realism.  You’ll also get concrete guidance for dealing with personal and professional blocks and difficulties that may bring some fear and anxiety.

Other tools are links and endnotes to deepen your understanding, expertise, and knowledge in practical, accessible ways.  Appreciation of your authentic strengths leads to further empowerment, engagement, and enjoyment for directing work life confidently and effectively.  You’ll find a free first chapter and invitation for a focused conversation at my website below.

“We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face… we must do that which we think we cannot.”
