WE ALL GOT ISSUES.
HOW TO DEAL WITH THEM AT WORK . . .
. . . AND RETAIN YOUR PERSONAL FAITH?
In any given week, many of us spend more time in the office than we do at home Â and thatÂs not cool. Especially if you have crazy coworkers and irrational bosses. Then thereÂs racism, security concerns, corporate cutbacks, competition, corruption, harassment and office politics. Our work environment seems like a battlefield.
Each of us wants to believe that the quality and nature of our work should be defined by more than the paycheck we get at the end of the week. But how do we survive these turbulent times in the workplace? How do we maintain our sanity and gain fulfillment?
As a former CNN news anchor and veteran journalist for more than 20 years, Andria Hall knows the challenges individuals face in the workplace, as she herself encountered workplace sabotage, struggled with work/life balance, and faced ethical decisions. In her latest book, The Walk at Work: Seven Steps to Spiritual Success on the Job (WaterBrook Press/Random House Â September 16, 2003) Hall offers a gentle and encouraging guide to readers which can specifically apply to office politics, career advancement, and soul survival. Hall examines not only the relationships we have with others at work, but also the everyday challenges many of us have just surviving and thriving in our careers.
In The Walk At Work, Andria shares the secrets of workplace success. ÂThere needs to be soul satisfaction in the workplace. Soul satisfaction means consciously living in a contented state of mind and spirit. Soul satisfaction means knowing that wherever we are, we are there because we have been divinely placed there Â even if itÂs smack dab in the middle of a challenge or crisis. Soul satisfaction allows us to daily persevere and endure with peace and joy,Â states Andria.
The Walk at Work is more than a book; it is a way of believing Â a way of life. It is a conscious decision to balance everyday living and work in a manner that preserves personal spiritual integrity while focusing on serving others. It makes the average workplace a higher calling Â a defined purpose and a place where true success can be achieved.
ÂIt is my hope that The Walk at Work will be a helpful tool in conducting the self-examination necessary for you to find that Âsoul satisfactionÂ in the workplace. In the midst of professional and personal insecurity, itÂs time for America to recognize the essence of the individual. We are spiritual beings. ItÂs time to authentically carry our faith and values into our Monday to Friday environment,Â states Andria.
This book is designed primarily to be the readersÂ guide through a seven-month process of attaining spiritual growth and maturity in their workplace. In addition to using this guide as an organized study, readers can also refer to it as needed for wisdom and encouragement when facing specific on-the-job trials, circumstances, and events that affect faith. It is the authorÂs belief that when biblical principles permeate the workplace, true success can be achieved.
As a Faith and Work expert, Andria can discuss:
o Finding meaning in your work - The secret to confidence and lasting inner peace.
o The trend of Prayer/Faith in the workplace Â Are employers finding that it helps employeesÂ productivity, purpose and peace of mind?
o Women who cross-country commute: One journalistÂs story of what she calls the Professional Mommie Syndrome.
o If life deals you lemons, donÂt let them squeeze you!
Designed for professionals who want to raise the bar on their performance in areas that really matter in the workplace, readers will find spiritual insights and practical application to help improve their integrity, interpersonal relationships, and overall personal excellence.
ÂItÂs time to take stock of where you are and examine how you can bring God back into your everyday life,Â says Andria. ÂWhen your faith becomes an active part of your vocation, you will find true success and purpose.Â
