The 7 Habits of career management. Combining positive psychology with sound career exploration and recruiting principles, Garton offers the secrets not of mere job satisfaction (which he shows is a myth in today's changing workplace). Instead, he maps the path to career contentment, a much more lasting kind of fulfillment that depends only on ourselves, regardless of who our employer is. A must-read for today's worker! --Marcia Bench, MCCC, Founder/Director, Career Coach Institute
This book offers a smart new take on why job dissatisfactions won't go away. For anyone looking to infuse contentment into a career, read these pages and prepare to take notes. --DANIEL H. PINK, Author of A WHOLE NEW MIND
This is not your typical career book. Garton challenges the myth of job satisfaction and teaches you how to leverage the power of your contented state of mind to connect with your callings, navigate your career, and to fulfill your purpose with or without job satisfaction. This is a must read for every career minded person. --TOM THURMAN, Senior Vice President, Kraft Foods International
