Description - How Much is Enough? by Pamela York Klainer
Whether we are CEOs of our own start-ups, senior executives with stock-option packages, or keepers of modest 401(k) accounts who watch the NASDAQ with terror, our relationship to money and work defines our daily lives. Yet, most of us don't really know what we want from work or how the time we devote to making money relates to the "rest" of our lives. How Much Is Enough? urges us to step back and ask how money and success point us toward a sense of accomplishment and a feeling of self-worth. In this path-breaking book, executive coach and consultant Dr. Pamela York Klainer shows us how to improve our often-troubled relationship to money. Supported by real-life anecdotes and time-tested insights, Klainer uses "money" as a window into the core values and behavior of successful people -and of those working hard to be successful. Based on her experience as a consultant to thousands of leaders in fast-growing companies, Klainer offers a practical framework for defining -and linking-money, the drive for success, and our longing for happiness.
Millions of us-from the boardroom to the home office-are shaken by turbulent markets and feel unable to shake the pressure to do more, better, faster. Dr. Klainer gives us the tools we need to channel the power of money in creative ways, so that we can map out the road to a more meaningful and happy life. Harness the power of your own life's "money story" as Dr. Pamela York Klainer shows you how to answer the four basic money questions: Do you see money as for "me" or for "we"? If it's for "me," how do you create a sense of meaning about your life? If it's for "we," how can you find time outside of work? How do you manage the power of money? Can you use your money to create meaningful difference in the world without riding roughshod over other people's desires and aspirations? Do you see yourself as a provider or an organizer? How do you negotiate ownership of these roles, at home and in the workplace? How much is enough? What amount of money will allow you to stop driving so hard? If you don't like to focus on money, why not? What are you missing?Money choices are about exercising personal power.
By changing our money story, we can-in new and powerful ways-change who are about to become.
