Work Passion Power: Strategies for a working life you will love by Max and Frances Harré

Careers, employment and working patterns are being deeply disrupted, with threats – real and imagined – from many directions: from rapid technology changes giving rise to anxiety-laden questions like, “will a robot steal my job?” and “how can educati on be made more relevant to tomorrow’s work possibilities”, to “how can I get clear about where I’m headed?”

The mental maps, the thinking tools that have been used in the past, no longer serve us well in navigating the waves of change sweeping over careers, work and work places today. We can do much better.

This is a thinking person’s resource, which explains in lively and clear terms:

• Mental tools for managing mindsets and working through challenges

• Practical steps to ensure ideas lead to effective action

• The vital role of meaning and purpose in future-proofing your work and career

• How to thrive in work in spite of rapid change.

The authors use powerful contemporary ideas and tools from complexity science, agile methods and performance coaching to develop the high level, soft skills we all need in the new era of work and careers. Both have many years’ experience and qualifications in research, management, counselling, career development and communication training.
