Description

Most jobs lack a compelling purpose. Research finds that this workplace deficiency makes people sluggish, disengaged, careless, disloyal, unhappy and unhealthy.

Fortunately, there is a way to be free from the modern trap of meaningless labor without switching careers or quitting jobs. The scientifically-validated practice of job purposing, which consists of surprisingly modest acts that anybody can do, elevates ordinary work to a fulfilling venture. Do Good At Work is a delightful, do-it-yourself guide to igniting meaning in any job and, consequently, becoming more successful, fulfilled, and happy. Unlike existing books which focus on helping executives with the corporate purpose statement that adorns the lobby, speaker and consultant Bea Boccalandro equips the individual worker to do work that matters regardless of their position.

Serving as president of VeraWorks, a global consulting firm specializing in workplace purpose for over 20 years, Bea has helped companies such as Aetna, Disney, FedEx, IBM, PwC, Toyota, and others obtain job purpose. She explains why most workers face a painful purpose void when they walk into work and guides readers through specific steps to fill that void, even including a list of 50 simple job purposing tactics to get readers started. Do Good At Work makes it possible for anybody to go home proud of their workday--every day.
