Getting Work Right

Labor and Leisure in a Fragmented World
  • By Michael J. Naughton
  • Foreword by Peter K. a. Cardinal Turkson
Product Description
If we don't get Sunday right, we won't get Monday"€"or any day of the workweek"€"right.

The divided life is a temptation so built into our society, we may not even recognize it. Yet most of us fall prey to it. We either undervalue work, resenting it as simply a job, or we overvalue it as an identity-defining career.

Michael Naughton, drawing on his background in both business and theology, proposes that the key to finding balance is another important human activity: leisure.

In light of leisure"€"not mere amusement, but time for family, silence, prayer, and above all, worship"€"work becomes a space where men and women can find deep fulfilment. Naughton provides real-world examples of how businesses can promote authentic human flourishment and innovation through practices and policies that support leisure.

In Getting Work Right Michael Naughton will change how you work"€"and rest.
