What Would Buddha Do at Work?: 101 Answers to Workplace Dilemmas

Franz Aubrey Metcalf, Author, Gallagher Hateley, Author, B. J. Gallagher Hateley, Joint Author Seastone $16.95 (170p) ISBN 978-1-56975-300-2
Metcalf, the author of What Would Buddha Do?, joins with business consultant Hateley to dispense spiritual advice from the water cooler. What would Buddha do to become a terrific boss? What would Buddha teach about customer service? How would Buddha go about getting a promotion? The answers are sometimes surprising (""Buddha did not work for promotions and neither should you""), making this a refreshingly countercultural alternative to the typical spirituality-at-work manuals. Metcalf and Hateley provide relevant sacred texts at the top of each page, drawing from sutras, the Dhammapada and more modern guides such as Philip Toshio Sudo's Zen Computer. This is a successful example of the application of ancient wisdom to modern business situations. (Aug.)
