AbstractThe Art of Happiness at Work is a modern-day Socratic dialogue in which Cutler asks the Dalai Lama about the difficulties and rewards we might encounter in the workplace. The authors explore issues such as work and identity,making money,the Buddhist concept of "right livelihood," and transforming dissatisfaction at work. The discussion appears simple,if not obvious, at first,but upon closer scrutiny,the Dalai Lama's profound wisdom and sensitivity emerges. For the Dalai Lama, basic human values such as kindness, tolerance,compassion,honesty,and forgiveness are the source of human happiness. Throughout the book,he illustrates with clear examples how bringing those qualities to bear on work-related challenges can help us tolerate or overcome the most thorny situations. Recognizing that not all problems can be solved,the Dalai Lama provides very sound advice. The authors urge balance and self-awareness and wisely state,"No matter how satisfying our work is, it is a mistake to rely on work as our only source of satisfaction."
