“The Sindells (cofounders, Hit the Ground Running; coauthors, Job Spa: 12 Weeks To Refresh, Refocus, and Recommit to Your Career) team up again with this volume on how to get your job to work for you, rather than the other way round. According to the authors, “the end of work” occurs when your job creates a sense of fulfillment and alignment with your personal goals. To this end, they offer eight strategies for rethinking your role at work, each of which applies to different people at different stages of their careers. The concise explanations of each strategy coupled with detailed explanations of how to follow through make this a great resource. Strongly recommended for anyone, employed or job-seeking, who wants to redefine how he or she thinks about work.”
