Hearing Our Calling

Rethinking Work and the Workplace

For many of us, work is a source of anxiety rather than joy, and our workplace routine may have become a strain on our lives. This unique book explores the possibility of developing a world of work that is actually joyful, fulfilling, and healthy.

Insightful and practical, Hearing Our Calling traces the history of work, challenging current work practices and routines we take for granted. Drawing on her extensive work with different organizations, the author exposes the corporate world and reveals a surprising and beautiful alternative. She argues that we all have a “calling” and that hearing it is especially important in today’s widespread unemployment and economic hardship.

This lucid and readable book invites us to think in new ways about how and where we work, both individually and as a society, and offers the potential for real change.
