Unhappy with your job? Before you vote with your feet, consider the advice of career specialists Beverly Kaye and Sharon Jordan-Evans and learn to love your job. In this practical sequel to their bestseller Love 'Em or Lose 'Em, the authors focus on employee satisfaction as a responsibility you must share with your employer. Although the format of Love It, Don't Leave It: 26 Ways to Get What You Want at Work is gimmicky--the suggestions follow the 26 letters of the alphabet--the advice is smart and specific.
Based on research with 15,000 people who have job longevity, Kaye and Jordan-Evans identified five top "stay factors" such as opportunity for growth and pay equity. Using these factors, they map several dozen CPR ("Career Path Resuscitation") including taming the boss from hell, finding multiple mentors, protecting family time, bringing fun to work, breaking out of your cubicle and solving your Rodney "no respect" Dangerfield problem.
One standout chapter enriches our understanding of the out of the box metaphor by comparing the properties of glass, concrete, and vapor boxes. Rich in examples and underlined with strategies, this book will attract a wide audience. Follow your heart careerists may question the very idea of lobbying against changing jobs. Still, when the authors urge each reader to become the author of his or her job satisfaction, the book becomes a valuable companion in an uncertain economy. --Barbara Mackoff
“Love It, Don’t Leave It is a must-read for all those who want to take control of their performance and their careers despite today’s uncertainties. The employee is an active agent, charged with knowing him or herself well enough to find the right role, set the right expectations, build the right relationships, and so forge the right career. In their immensely practical book, Kaye and Jordan-Evans show how.”

Chapter titles include Career, Dignity, Hire, Kicks, Mentor, Numbers and Understand. In `Ask' the major topic of the book is discussed. Do not assume your work, manager or boss knows what you want. Tell them. Include WIIFT (What's In It For Them). Smash through the barriers. As `Z' for Zenith states "Satisfaction Requires Action."
Along the way one gets chapter after chapter of spotted T-shirt messages that the authors believe holds true-isms. As a reader it did occur to me that not only the book's major tone is one of optimism for staying at one's current job, in lieu of leaving for another, but also that it is geared towards the cubicled office worker. The authors might disagree with this last statement. The authors are indeed positive and are assuming that one' managers and bosses are rational. They are not assuming that the managers have either the answers or the ability. There are chapters for those impediments as well.
Remember, making you happy is good for your employer.
