"What Would Buddha Do at Work?" is a collection of 101 typical workplace situations - including problems and difficult issues, as well as positive topics - that people face in their day-to-day work lives. Each of the 101 short lessons begins with a question, which is answered by a quote from Buddhist scripture and followed by a short explanation by the authors of how Buddha would handle that particular issue and how we can follow his example. Each lesson is inspirational and practical so that readers can actually apply what they learn to real-life situations at work. Not necessarily intended to be read cover to cover, the book invites readers to jump around to the lessons that are most relevant to their sitaution. For convenience, chapters are organized around specific topics ranging from customers, coworkers and bosses to money, power and personal fulfillment. The book also encourages readers to learn more about Buddhism and includes an appendix outlining Buddha's teachings and a helpful list of further reading. "What Would Buddha Do at Work?" is a book for those who want to transform their work experience from a pursuit of money into a quest for personal fulfillment. Every day at work we confront numerous dilemmas that if properly handled can help define our character. Teaching by example, this book addresses 101 such dilemmas and reveals how Buddha's wisdom can inspire and guide us to "enlightened" answers to our problems - answers that are spiritual as well as practical and realistic. The book is aimed at people at all levels of an organization, from top executives to front-line workers and people in all type of businesses, and involved in all types of work. Those interested in Buddhism, and people hoping to turn work from a money-oriented pursuit into a personally rewarding experience should also find the book useful.
