“i think the work world is ripe for topics such as this book. with profit being the driving force behind many successful businesses, it is easy for us to become confused and think that more money or power is what makes us happy. if that were true, the richest and most powerful among us would be the happiest. we need only live this way for a short while to see that happiness does not come from feeding our desires and rejecting our aversions. as we come to realize this in our personal and family lives, we may experience an incongruency with how we feel we must act at work. in Happy at Home, Happy at Work, Susanne offers a clear and straightforward way for us to cultivate specific character traits that lead to happiness, allowing our personal and work life to reflect the strength and congruency that come when we live from our deepest values.”
~ john cunningham, director of advanced process services, the rovisys company
“freud had it right: humans need success in both love and work to be happy and fulfilled. it's great to have a book that not only helps us stay mindful about the necessity to maintain balance in these two vital areas but that also gives us ‘crossover’ tools that work in both arenas.”
~ Diane Sollee, Founder and Director of smartmarriages.com
“in this readily accessible and enlightening resource, susanne alexander brings together research and knowledge from a wide variety of fields. she elaborates a reasoned and logical case for what business leaders already know intuitively about workers with character qualities like honesty, commitment, trustworthiness, love, excellence, and more. these individuals can better navigate the worlds of work and home, and they have a positive impact on both. this book is a must-read for people who know that balancing their total lives yields happiness and greater results for their families and workplaces.”
~ matthew d. turvey, psy.d. lp, author of Marriage and Family Wellness: Corporate America’s Business?; Director of Strategic Alliances, Life Innovations
“examining the link between life satisfaction and work satisfaction is an important area of research and application. and, viewing every employee as a whole individual with richness in every facet of life is vital to long-term organizational success. thank goodness a resource like this one is now available. this book will certainly enrich the life of every reader and organization that chooses to use it systematically.”
