Buffalo, NY (PRWEB) December 9, 2009
Every business revolves around people. The same is true for life. In her new book, CLO: Chief Life Officer, author and consultant Amy Remmele shows that decisions become more rational when individuals think of their lives as an enterprise that they are managing.
CLO: Chief Life Officer shows readers their “departments,” and how they function best through an authentic, shared mission. “Seeing parts of ourselves as departments makes more common sense than the psychological view of parts,” explains the author. The book stresses that all the How-Tos readers encounter will not help unless they look at the Whys of their actions.
CLO: Chief Life Officer helps readers create their own life business plan. The plan includes setting goals, communication and relationship creation, and maintaining and accessing a support system. Readers learn to define important divisions of their lives in terms of business departments. The book helps readers test their capacity of readers’ production, customer service, human relations, and sales departments. The book demonstrates how to create and apply a “decisional balance table” to life choices, enabling readers to set the right priorities.
“After years of studying and teaching sound business applications to business owners, I realized that these principles applied to people's lives in general, both in and out of business settings,” says Remmele. “In counseling, when individuals or couples begin to think of themselves as a business, the counseling process becomes more efficient and much less oppositional. Your life is the most important business you will ever own.”
