Our work should be a manifestation of who we are and what we believe

Kourtney Whitehead

Do you want more from work than just a paycheck or a title? Are you ready to manifest a work life rooted in joy, purpose, and contentment?

As a career expert and coach, I will guide you on a self-discovery journey to bridge the gap between your spiritual life and your work. In Working Whole, I share eight principles that will free you to be inspired and joyful in your life and work callings.

I know that when we commit to living our beliefs in these eight core areas (humility, surrender, discipline, gratitude, connection, love, power, and patience), we can work authentically and live fulfilled.

Drawing from my long career as a recruiter and advisor, and my coaching work with everyone from new hires to seasoned executives in transition to high-achievers determining what retirement can mean for them, I share tips and tools for handling the expectations, choices, conflicts, challenges, and opportunities we face in our work life.

The book will lead you through a transformative process to become more creative, energized, observant, accepting of change, and open-hearted at work.

With informative content, exploratory exercises, and actionable suggestions throughout, Working Whole provides a clear framework for making life and career decisions, both big and small, allowing you to reach your highest potential and live your most fulfilled life.
