Whitehead thoughtfully acknowledges the varying levels of dissatisfaction many feel in their professional lives and advocates how self-awareness, spiritual principles, and perceptiveness about our place in the world can often produce more satisfying results

This book has truly helped me think about how my personal life, spiritual life and work life are inextricably intertwined. It has also renewed my inspiration for continuing my journey towards a fulfilled way of being in all aspects. The book contains so much life wisdom and real life application, I forgot it it was about work at first!

The author masters analogy use by comparing our entire lives to that of a story plot. We choose the type of genre, setting, etc. And these choices determine how we

I really needed this book. I have often struggled with merging the two parts of me: one ambitious and the other striving to be content, or in the words of the author, "humble." This book was very interactive in that it challenges you to ask questions about your life as it is and how you wish to be. Much like a workbook or study, I spent a lot of time thinking about how to change my current situation (externally) to match my current self (internally). I would recommend this book to any woman wond ...more

Work and life are never two separate things, but when we treat them as such, we often become overwhelmed, frustrated, or at odds with ourselves. Kourtney shows us that integrating our spiritual beliefs and then anchoring all aspects of our lives to what we believe is the only way to live up to our full potential. “Working Whole” will encourage you to reflect on what you believe and then challenge you to do the work you are called to do. Thoughtful, authentic, and inspiring, Kourtney will lead yo ...more

Absolutely brilliant! Necessary for all of us looking to find balance, integrity and honor in our personal and professional lives. In a world of soundbytes and obscure ‘advice’, Kourtney writes from the heart about how to truly love what you do and find yourself in the process. Amazing work.

Whatever stage you are in on your career path, you'll find insights small and large to drive self-reflection about your callings, how you define yourself, who you surround yourself with, how to begin each work day with open optimism, and what fulfills you.

Integrating Work and Spirituality

What a fascinating book! I've read a number of books on business as well as a number on spirituality, but I've never seen the two concepts so artfully combined in one book. The author states that as our spirituality guides are personal life, so it should guide our professional or work life. She inspires us to integrate work and life in a way that resonates with our spiritual center. The book is split into two larger sections with a series of short chapters, each

While I've read a few books on the intersection of our career/vocation and spiritually, this will be the first written from a female author's perspective who's a career expert having been a recruiter, counsellor and coach. While I did believe this was a faith-based (religious) book, it's not and that didn't take away from any of the insight I've gleaned from this book. Anyone seeking to live holistically meaning have their core values and beliefs not only integrated into every area of their live ...more

The book is based on sound philosophy. The author used the metaphor of producing a television series to represent the way you live your life. I didn't relate to this metaphor which was used extensively.

Some of this book I agreed with and others I didn't. It did bring up some interesting feelings on where I'm currently at in life so I got that going for me.
