Product Details


“In both up and down economies, people need to feel energized and innovative. Rather than depend on others for this “glow,” Lynda defines three principles and nine actions that help people engage in work. Lynda writes with practical passion that helps the reader turn the ideas into practice. Glow is timely, insightful, and helpful.”
—Dave Ulrich Professor of Business Administration, Ross School of Business, University of Michigan, and Partner, The RBL Group

“Warm and encouraging, Lynda lays out a wise path for living well in today’s connected, global world. For young adults, Glow’s practical examples translate skills from your personal life into a rewarding work experience. For older adults concerned about remaining viable in a changing world, the book’s thoughtful tools and reassuring themes provide the confidence for continued success.”
—Tamara Erickson, author of Plugged In: The Generation Y Guide to Thriving at Work and Retire Retirement: Career Strategies for the Boomer Generation

—Hallstein Moerk, Executive Vice President, Human Resources, Nokia
