Publisher's Summary

Maintaining control in today's hectic workplace is a challenge; everything is lean, competitive, and uncertain. What does it take to survive?

Making Work Work is Julie Morgenstern's most important book yet. Through the mastery of brand-new strategies, Morgenstern shows you how small changes in your thinking and behavior will help you achieve the seemingly impossible, boost your value, increase your job security, and afford you the time to still have a life.

Morgenstern has helped clients of all levels take control of their work lives in every industry: from corporations and nonprofits to government agencies and small businesses; from executives and assistants to educators and salespeople. She's learned that no matter who you are, happiness at work involves feeling appreciated, in control, successful, and in balance. And achieving that is possible.

People rarely look at their jobs from a psychological and practical perspective at the same time, but Julie Morgenstern does. This book mirrors the individual consulting services she provides by showing you how to start with yourself and then tackle the more complex external issues of working relationships and the job. For every obstacle you encounter along the way, Morgenstern diagnoses the source of the problem (is it you or them?), and with insight and warmth, she provides simple grab-and-go strategies. These are small changes anyone can make to improve performance and efficiency at work.

At its core, Making Work Work is about your relationship to your job. With the reliable, methodical process taught in this book, you will:

  • Feel less trapped and more in charge
  • Be able to make a bad situation better
  • Search for a job that's a better fit for who you are

    "eh"

    The author speaks very slowly (I had to speed up my ipod for the first tme), so slowly that it is annoying and difficult to concentrate. Her inflection is also difficult to listen to. She raises her voice when there is no question and keeps her voice level when the book is asking a question. I would never want to listen to her read a book again. The content is OK but her voice is so distracting that it detracts from the message.

    "I wish I could return this one"

    I'm having a hard time enjoying this book. I'm sure it is a great book, but the reader has one of those voices I have a hard time listening to for awhile.
