The Work-Life Equation: Six Key Values That Drive Happiness and Success is for the millions of people and business managers who are surrounded by bad behavior-with its attendant mediocre or unsatisfying results-at work and in their private lives, but who hope and dream for a happier and more successful life. The book begins with a frank explanation of the need for self-awareness and self-improvement, then describes how the "winning formula" and the equation for happiness and success in work-life-(H,S) = f(4C,2R)-can be applied via six types of behaviors to effect sweeping changes. The formula means Happiness and Success can be achieved by (is a function of) Cooperative Actions, Considerate Feelings, Compassionate Inclinations, Acts of Courtesy, Respectfulness, and Responsible Attitudes. The book concludes with a self-assessment tool for the individual, team, or organization to complete that enables objective measurements of behaviors and indentification of areas of potential improvement. Dismissing the familiar, corporate value clich├ęs, the author focuses on six key values most readers probably learned as kids but have forgotten about in adulthood-or didn't realize were still apt and relevant. The book provides priceless information and guidance for all readers, but will be especially appreciated by those in the corporate workplace interested in self-improvement and success, educators and business students, executives looking to shift their firm's behavioral atmosphere in positive direction, and individuals seeking inspiration and hope in their daily lives.
