Got the Power: Seven Tools to Produce the Work Life You Want

Cie Murray, Lifesource (GotThePower.biz), $21.95 (125p) ISBN 978-0-9841550-4-0
In this punchy and straightforward business plan, empowerment coach Murray advocates determining one's best attributes as the path to work-life fulfillment and satisfaction. Murray stresses the importance of finding the work you do best, rather than doing the work others expect of you. To this end, she offers a Thinker Locator Profile—a questionnaire to help determine which "innate" physical orientation readers excel in: hands, brain, mouth, arms, feet, or heart. A list of professions is suggested for each orientation. A person scoring highest in the hands category might consider being a dock worker or a radiologist, whereas a person with high heart scores might be suited to a career as an artist or nurse. Murray provides tips—such as not holding grudges—to help readers make smart, dignified choices in various sticky workplace scenarios. She also suggests turning work into play—looking at it with fresh eyes—as a way to unleash imagination, and she challenges readers to redefine "motivators" and rekindle a sense of gratitude for employment. Despite some platitudinous corporate-speak, Murray delivers an upbeat message.
