This book urges us to think creatively about our jobs. Taking a cue from "Centering" by M.C. Richards, the author affirms the idea that all work can be artful. The challenge is to bring spirit, soul, emotion, and imagination into the workplace and put them on an even keel with reason, organizational charts, and deadlines. Richards, a business consultant for 20 years, shows how artful work contains large doses of joy, meaning, and self-discovery. He also believes that leadership and standard operating procedures can be infused with poignancy and purpose. Artful Work seeds our dreams about bringing the best that is within us to our jobs.
