Summary of The Stirring of Soul in the Workplace

This is a splendid book, grounded in deep experience with organizations and with life. Its insights could help heal our souls, our structures, and our society.

-- Parker J. Palmer, author of The Active Life and To Know as We Are Known

The qualities that come to mind when we think of soul--meaning, memory, wildness, beauty, divinity--are necessary elements for navigating today's workplace. But today's employees experience a gap between what organizations say and what they do about soul in the workplace. The Stirring of Soul in the Workplaceoffers a way to understand that gap. Evocatively written, it is an inspiring alternative to the flood of management books, suggesting ways to shift your paradigm and get you home in time for dinner. It gives people seeking to balance their personal spiritual path with job realities a unique opportunity to reflect and find encouragement on their journey.

This lyrical book offers perspective to those struggling to hear the quiet voice of the soul over the din of contemporary life. Alan Briskin shows how the modern organization has gradually increased its demands on us, beginning with our bodies, then our minds, and now our souls. Filled with memorable, moving stories of people in a wide range of occupations and their personal struggles to reclaim their souls, The Stirring of Soul in the Workplace sends a hopeful message that encourages individuals to keep their spiritual integrity and values alive within the pragmatic environment of the organization.

    Very, very interesting book here, almost never see thought discussed when it comes to the workplace and business. A funny collection of business case profiles, theology, philosophy, history and literature, but this book is about living and contains deep wisdom. Some good companion books to this are anything by James Hillman and “Nuts” by Kevin and Jackie Freiberg, two books about soul and reputation written with heart! The publishers of this book have some amazing titles related to purpose and meaning in the workplace, issues very dear to my heart!
