Learn About the Book
Soulful Work, LLC invites labor and management into a common conversation about quality of life in the workplace. Promoting principles and practices that redefine the workplace paradigm, it speaks on behalf of the hardest workers among us: the selfless and the tireless, the brightest and the best. With a focus on the soul-deep distress of the gainfully employed, it welcomes workers from all walks of life to the last of all ecologies: the greening of our own spirits in the pastures of the workplace.
Life on the fast track is taking its toll. Worker disengagement is on the rise in every industrialized nation as increasing numbers of quality employees fail to produce at the level that serious, substantive work requires. While some are successful, the masses are unable to self-actualize at the highest levels of human potential. Present on the job but depleted at an essential level of soul, they represent the growing body of psychologically impoverished workers that Soulful Work, LLC represents.
Speaking through the Silence
Searing issues of soul burn deep into the human psyche in the workplace, rendering many speechless on a topic of tremendous personal relevance. Worn weary by the increasing demands of daily labor and dwindling resources, an abysmal silence on this topic pervades the landscape. Speaking for this audience is Soulful Work, LLC, able to articulate the problems as well as a wide array of viable solutions.
The High Cost of Worker Disengagement
Failure to flourish on the job and maximize potential is just one form of worker disengagement, among many, that is the focus of Soulful Work, LLC. Staggering statistics indicate that the inability to thrive at work is a growing societal issue that sweeps across continents, impacting our economy alone at an estimated $350 billion per year. As the numbers rise, low productivity and off-task behaviors are rapidly becoming more the norm than the exception.
The True Price of Low Productivity
Dollars alone bring no dignity when workers are famine-stricken at the level of soul. Suffering from an inner squalor, workers so affected cannot be fed with corporate funds. The growing number of employees in this predicament put a new spin on the old term, “working poor”. Dutifully driven to do what they were hired to do, they may languish on the job, nonetheless.
Despite this, the topic of soul has defied description since the earliest days of the Industrial Revolution. For the pioneers of business and industry and for generations to come, labor and love could not be used in the same sentence with any semblance of sanity. Fortunately, a new day dawns on the employment horizon.
Voices in favor of the soulful workplace are heard around the world as authors, anthropologists, business leaders, statesmen and clergy continue to endorse this agenda. Soulful Work, LLC supports them in their mission and endorses the value of people over profit, reaffirming that workers are surely of more worth than the goods they produce and the services they render.
