Overview: This book is far more than just a book. Each chapter contains numerous interactive activities that make the book a sort of personalized learning journey. I found that as I completed these short simple activities, the truths and learning became more poignant. There are also great chapter summaries, videos, surveys, tests and other resources available on the authors website at www.wethebook.com… passwords at the end of each chapter if you buy the book that will provide access to the correlating online resources.
Premise of Book: “There is nothing more important for a person or organization than full engagement.”
Sample of the Book Review (click here to read the full review):
The average person ranks “worker/employee” as the fifth most important role in their life… This is very interesting and useful information when it comes to understanding the machinations of full engagement at work… The other areas of life must be healthy and nurtured if full engagement at work is to be achieved. The authors present research and anecdotes to support the following:
- Quality of our marriages – People who love their job have better marriages
- Effectiveness of our parenting – people who love their job are better parents
- Personal health – people who love their job have better health (heart, weight, cholesterol)
- Life satisfaction – people who love their job have higher satisfaction in life
