"...takes the lid off the difficult career questions we all face, and provides pointed advice for finding healthy, empowering work."-Steve Woodruff, Author, Clarity Wins
The Great Resignation, the Great Reshuffling, and Quiet Quitting-clearly something is not right at work. Rates of stress, anxiety, and depression were skyrocketing before the COVID-19 pandemic. Tied to their smartphones 24/7, many people were overworking, measuring their self-worth and value by how busy they were. They compared their lives to the filtered lives of peers on social media. They worked in corporate cultures that didn't support employees, and they undervalued the importance of their own mental and physical health.
During the pandemic's height in 2020, many people were forced to stay home. Some found themselves without a job at all; others had to learn to do their jobs remotely. It was during this "down time" that many people realized that busyness, overworking, overconsumption, avoidance, and numbing weren't helping. In fact, the whole approach was batshit crazy.
In This Isn't Working! Evolving the Way We Work to Decrease Stress, Anxiety, and Depression, career transition expert Catherine Altman Morgan explains why we shouldn't be striving to get back to "normal," because normal wasn't all that great. Instead, we need to EVOLVE.
Through her company, Point A to Point B Transitions Inc., Catherine has worked with many clients who suffer with physical and mental health issues caused by work-related stress.
In this book she offers techniques and strategies to rethink how we live and work and start feeling better almost immediately.
