Product Description

About the Author

Entering work in a dream job with the Edmonton Oilers Hockey Club that culminated in a Cinderella Stanley Cup playoff run, Tyler shook his head while voluntarily walking away after only two years on the job. Why leave? He simply knew it was not the right career path for him (something the 1700 people who applied to replace him were thankful for). Instead, he began a quest to answer the question plaguing him: “Why do so many people struggle with their entry into work?” Fast forward a decade; mix together interviews with dozens of fortune 500 CEOs, hundreds of students and workers; a Masters degree in organizational leadership; work in countries like India, Belize, Qatar and China; and you have the body of knowledge which has Tyler rewiring our approach to work and mobilizing the next generation of workers.

Format: Paperback
I was fortunate enough to be able to get an advanced copy of this book. As a career advisor I found this to have a fresh and interesting perspective on the career industry with some brilliant new ideas. Since reading the book, I have used many of these concepts and statistics in my professional life. And, as someone with almost 20 years in the working world, I found that this book could give even me a great deal to think about.

I strongly recommend this book for people coming out of school and starting their careers (or struggling to start a meaningful career) or those who have started to feel uninspired by their daily work. This book will give you tangible advise on how to shape your career and achieve "life-style based career success". After all isn't that what we are all looking for? Don't you want to work to live rather than live to work?

HASH(0x9ca10ba8) out of 5 stars Should be required reading for anyone who works for a living Nov. 20 2013
By CAspindoc - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is a gold mine: rich veins of insight, information and advice. Any thirty-ish person who is in, or thinking of entering, the workplace would do well to read it. Parents of these “Gen Y” kids will probably want to give it to their young adult children as a gift.

Mr. Waye tackles the very complicated issues facing those who are struggling with career and life choices and does so in an earnest, compelling way. Perhaps the most important message of the book is that career does not stand alone: it affects one’s entire life and must therefore be dealt with in that larger context. Mr. Waye correctly states that many people do not know how to create the reality of overall happiness and fulfillment at work -- and then he proceeds to offer a succinct plan for doing just that.

The curmudgeonly among us may still try to insist that “it’s my way or the highway,” but they do so at their own peril. Or, as the author puts it when he quotes Sir Ken Robinson, “We are asking the youth of today to fill our shoes; what is so good about our shoes?”

It may seem blindingly obvious that the first step in career success -- nay, “life happiness” -- is to do what one likes to do -- but, incredibly, many people stumble around this basic truth. The results are predictable. Mr. Waye explains in logical sequence how to identify certain dangerous trends in time/work management -- and what to do instead. He clearly explains the concepts of “career control and customized success.” The result is a very readable and vitally important book.
