Take Charge of Your Career

Your Soul at Work "provides a truly unique bridge between the challenges of a professional career and the spiritual goals which alone give that struggle a satisfying and permanent meaning." Those are the words of Benedict J. Groeschel, author of Spiritual Passages.

However, Your Soul at Work is not just a feel-good exercise. You should only buy this book if you are ready to Take Charge of your career and turn it in a personally and spiritually satisfying direction.

"Taking Charge" is the name of the career planning process that Steve and I developed for some of the world's most successful corporations. These techniques and Steve's extensive research have revolutionized career and leadership development at many major corporations. Now, for the first time, these techniques are available to the public.
