Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The authors, a consultant and a psychologist, set out to help leaders (within and outside organizations) understand the meaning and purpose of work. We learn that as employees find meaning in their efforts, they contribute to creating value for customers, investors, and communities; hence, finding meaning is good for business. The Ulrichs offer seven disciplines, each with a unique perspective, that leaders can use to build meaning in their organizations or personally, identifying these disciplines with extensive interviews of a wide range of individuals, through training programs for numerous executives and human resource professionals, and by researching academic sources on meaning and living well. These seven disciplines include positive psychology, social responsibility, and employee engagement. This book is an infomercial and handbook for the authors’ teaching/consulting efforts and they emphatically conclude that meaning matters for good business, but also “for the hearts and souls of millions of people who get up and go to work every day.” --Mary Whaley

From the Publisher

About the Authors
Dave Ulrich
's work passion has been how to build organization capabilities (systems, processes, cultures) that create value to multiple stakeholders, then to help leaders build intangible value in organizations. Working with over half of the Fortune 200 and with companies throughout the world, he provides seminars, writes books, and coaches leaders to build sustainable organizations by turning customer and investor expectations into personal and organizational actions. He helps leaders move beyond employee engagement to helping employees find real meaning from work. He is a professor of business at the Ross School of Business, University of Michigan and co-founder of The RBL Group. He has written 15 books covering topics in HR and Leadership; is currently on the Board of Directors for Herman Miller; is a Fellow in the National Academy of Human Resources; and is on the Board of Trustees of Southern Virginia University.

Wendy Ulrich, Ph.D., has been a psychologist in private practice in Michigan for over twenty years. She is founder of Sixteen Stones Center for Growth in Utah, offering seminar-retreats on abundance. Their work with organizations and individuals intersects at helping people find meaning at work. Dave works to rethink and redefine how organizations work and Wendy works to help individuals rethink and redefine their own lives. At the same time, they are committed to the importance of the organization's responsibility to shareholders and investors as they respond to external conditions.
