Sinopsis: An Inspiring Guide to Making Life Miraculous
"So much has been written about the negative aspects of today's work environments. Angels in the Workplace is an inspiring look at how ordinary people can make an extraordinary difference at their place of work."--Karol Emmerick, corporate director and former vice president and treasurer, Dayton Hudson Corporation
Angels do exist and they can transform your workplace. With these enchanting stories, noted business author and consultant Melissa Giovagnoli recounts the tales of ordinary people whose random acts of kindness have generated some extraordinary results. These people are living proof that there are angels among us, and Giovagnoli tells us how we might join their ranks. The author says that to be angels ourselves, we must shape our lives according to seven heavenly tenets: faith, hope, charity, courage, truth, trust, and love. Devoting a chapter to each virtue, Giovagnoli describes the miracles that living angels have performed on the job, and shows how we can put these virtues into practice in our own lives. It?s an inspiring work about renewing hope, creating a stronger sense of community, and redefining the meaning of success.
From the Back Cover:
For sixteen years, noted business author and consultant Melissa Giovagnoli has visited companies across the country. And every place she goes, she finds too many workers struggling with feelings of alienation and job dissatisfaction. But she's also come across dozens of ordinary people whose extraordinary actions have made the work experience more rewarding for all concerned. These people are, by every account, angels in the workplace.
On these pages, you'll find the angels' stories and you'll discover how even small acts of kindness can transform entire organizations. More important, you'll realize that you can do the same. Part inspiration and part instruction, Angels in the Workplace is your guide to bringing joy and purpose back into your daily life and into the lives of those around you.
Here is the tale of a telemarketing firm owner whose personal generosity toward her employees made for low turnover, stellar customer service, and increased business. Then there's the story of Momma Hawk, a Chicago high-school teacher who's given fresh hope to hundreds of at-risk students through the innovative learning program she established.
You'll also learn about an impoverished woman in El Salvador who turned a one-hundred-dollar loan into new prosperity for herself and her entire community. And you'll cheer the rising young corporate executive who reinvigorated his career-and saved his colleagues' jobs-by courageously challenging the downsizing plans of top management.
With these stories and more, Angels in the Workplace shows how people from all walks of life have followed seven simple principles to the betterment of their lives, their organizations, and their communities. The author hopes you might do the same and, to that end, provides a number of strategies, action steps, and exercises for bringing out the angel that resides in us all.
