Finding Right Work Intro

Imagine creating and manifesting work you really could be doing – work that would energize you and also be work that needs to be done to help make the world a better place!

In her best-selling book, "Finding Right Work: Five Steps to a Life You Love," author Leni Miller guides readers through the process of assessing priorities, values, and strongest talents, skills and abilities. Then readers learn how to actually find their own unique and "right work."

Leni interviewed people from a wide array of industry sectors. She focused on what worked for them and how many of those people became successful beyond their imagination. Everyone shared the common thread of having discovered their own right work after leaving what had become "wrong work." Through this research, Leni uncovered a practical process that leads to the understanding of the parameters of right work, and how embracing the process will ultimately lead to personal success.

With more than three decades of experience in the Executive Support Professional search and consulting job placement business, Leni shares her expertise, outlining the necessary steps in assessing oneself so they may begin the journey to new right work and find the very right match in the workplace.

What You'll Learn

In chapters devoted to each of the five steps, you’ll read about real people who tackled and then mastered these principles. Some suddenly quit their jobs; some were fired. Some worked two jobs while growing their own business or studying for a new career. Others had longer paths, worked multiple jobs over time, and took many detours on their way to their right work.

In the book’s action items, Leni provides a detailed checklist to guide you through the process of discovering and creating your own right work. She has also published a "Finding Right Work" companion self-directed workbook. Click My Work Book to download your personal workbook.
