(But come back.)

"Filled with practical, researched advice that is simultaneously both spiritual and profoundly down to earth." -M. Scott Peck, M.D., author of The Road Less Traveled


Do you love your work?

…Or like most people do you wish it were a little more satisfying? Maybe you've been the victim of downsizing and are trying to make the best of the situation.

I'm Nick Weiler, lead author of Your Soul at Work, Five Steps to a More Fulfilling Career and Life. If these questions hit home, then our book was written for you:

Would you like to fulfill more of your personal and spiritual values on the job?

Could you use some very practical techniques for finding and pursuing a career path that better satisfies your values?

Would you like to learn specific, research-proven non-technical skills that are key to success and advancement in just about any career specialty?

Are you frustrated with career planning books that neglect your more spiritual concerns?

Are you frustrated when you try to practice on the job what you've learned in spiritually oriented self-help books?

My co-author, Dr. Stephen Schoonover and I based Your Soul at Work on over twenty years of research with many well-known organizations worldwide. Our tools and techniques are used by numerous Fortune 500 companies (GE, IBM, AT&T, Lockheed Martin, Sun Microsystems EDS, Citibank etc.), in addition to small startups, and not-for-profit organizations.

"Is this all there is?"

Steve and I have noticed a growing pattern in the companies we work with. More and more people sense a nagging, hard-to-pinpoint frustration in their work lives. It begins with a feeling of being too driven, with not enough time for important relationships or personal growth. People are longing for a greater sense of fulfillment, real meaning and spiritual growth in their work lives.

Often it's the people who are very successful financially who find themselves asking, "Is this all there is?" But it's more than time and it's more than money. In a recent cover story of Fortune magazine, one executive was quoted as saying "You get to the top of the ladder and find that maybe it's leaning against the wrong building."

If you are one of these people seeking to balance your work and personal life - if you want to make certain the ladder you're climbing is leaning against the right building, please consider picking up a copy of our book. I've included three extensive excerpts to get you going. Just click "Continue" to see more.
