"Our work should be a manifestation of who we are and what we believe."

Do you want more from work than just a paycheck or a title? Are you ready to manifest a work life rooted in joy, purpose, and contentment?

Career expert Kourtney Whitehead will guide you on a self-discovery journey to bridge the gap between your spiritual life and your work, and help you bring intention and satisfaction to your professional life. In Working Whole, she shares eight principles that will free you to be inspired and joyful in your life and work callings. She advises that when we commit to living our beliefs in these eight core areas (humility, surrender, discipline, gratitude, connection, love, power and patience), we can work authentically and live fulfilled.

Drawn from her long career as a recruiter, counselor and coach and her work with everyone from new hires to seasoned executives in transition to high-achievers preparing for retirement, Kourtney shares tips and tools for handling the expectations, choices, conflicts, challenges and opportunities we face in our work life. She leads you through a transformative experience to become more creative, energized, observant, accepting of change and open-hearted.

In this book, you'll learn:

  • How to assess the particular conflicts that work life exerts on your spiritual values
  • How well you're integrating your spiritual beliefs into your life
  • What actions will move you from feeling disconnected and uninspired in your work, to realizing a deep level of satisfaction
  • How to negotiate real-world obstacles, like an untrustworthy boss or a job that makes you feel trapped

With a warm tone and featuring informative content, exploratory exercises and actionable suggestions throughout, Working Whole provides a clear framework for making life and career decisions, both big and small, allowing you to reach your highest potential and live your most fulfilled life.
