Happiness at work
We can find greater happiness by decreasing our demands to a minimum level. This does not stop us from increasing our desires. We can benefit from having high hopes as long as we also take action so we are more effective at getting what we want. And since it would be illogical to work for an enterprise whose overall objectives conflict with our personnal goals, it makes senses that we can best achieve our goals if they are compatible with a better realization of the company's goals. Now isn't that happiness at work? See how we can work on it.Order (18,70$)
Breaking the Emotional Barriers to Effective Management
I would like to see the publication of this volume as a signal of an era where disciplines as apparently diferent as psychotherapy and management will find more and more common ground, mutually enriching each other, instead of regarding each other with suspicion.
A volume like this wil hopefully make an effective contribution to reducing the deep-rooted prejudices that specialists in these two fields harbor toward one another. For managers, psychologists, especially psychotherapists, are usually thought of as long-haired, bearded individuals, conversing interminably about the vague and obscure problems of the wretched neurotics who somehow show up on their doorsteps. As for the therapists, they tend to see administrators or managers as human machines: stripped of emotion, interested only in production and profit, heedlessly trampling on the humans under their direction and totally ignorant of the most fundamental principles of healthy interpersonal contact.
Reading this volume and putting the teachings it contains into practice, will enable managers to accomplish their work in a less harassed manner and will predispose them to good digestion, instead of the gastric ulcers that are far too common ailment in this profession.

Initiative and Success at Work
In this book, I focused my attention on the lessons we can learn from the lives of prominant personalities. With this in mind, I have illustrated my points with excerpts from biographies of such vastly different individuals as John F. Kennedy, John Paul Getty, Mother Teresa, Martin Luther King, James de Rothschild, Helen Keller, Norman Bethune, Ben Weider, Hans Selye, Claude Brunet, Jacques Grand'Maison, Golda Meir and Alain Stanké. Throught their examples, I would like to demonstrate that in the final analysis, discipline is nothing other than good management of our lives and that we have a vesed interest in disciplining ourselves to achieve overall well-being. In effect, disciplined action consists of initiatives, which trough repetition will bring us little by little toward success in our individual or collective endeavors.
What are the essential components of discipline and how can initiative and courage contribute to success in our working lives? These are the questions that this sort of volume will attempt to answer, in the simplest and clearest manner possible.Order (18,70$)
