Quatrième de couverture

"A perceptive guide"--Publishers Weekly

If you feel drained and debilitated at work, or your work doesn't fulfill your creativity, you may be among the 20 percent of the population who are overwhelmed by job pressures. The Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) is often intelligent, imaginative, empathetic, and hyper-aware of surroundings. This sensitivity is part of being passionate about work. But it can also make being in the work force a painful trial.

Based on cutting-edge research and extensive interviews with hundreds of HSPs, Dr. Barrie Jaeger tackles the problems and issues highly sensitive people face--including feeling overwhelmed by work pressures, overstimulation in the workplace, and lack of confidence. Building on the groundbreaking national bestseller, The Highly Sensitive Person, she explains why traditional work doesn't work for you--and what you can do about it. Dr. Jaeger provides proven strategies to find work you can embrace, not just endure, including:

  • Identifying particular aspects of any job that contribute to unhappiness
  • Avoiding certain jobs that don't work for HSPs and what to do to get out
  • Finding your true calling--and how to let a calling find you--and discovering work that brings joy, creativity, and the greatest level of satisfaction.

Jaeger also includes exercises, ways to take breaks (vital for stress relief) and provides helpful personal assessment features. Making Work Work is an owner's manual for highly sensitive people who want to discover how to love what they do--and do what they love.

Biographie de l'auteur

Barrie Jaeger, Ph.D., is known as "The Self-Employment Doctor" and "Work Purpose Coach." She presents seminars and workshops on workplace issues for the HSP. Barrie contributes articles on work to the Comfort Zone, a newsletter for the Highly Sensitive Person, published by Elaine Aron.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Reassuring, but not a definitive how-to guide 29 juin 2004
Par K. Weis - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book is touted as being a guide for the highly sensitive person looking for meaningful work. While it offers excellent practical advice for dealing with difficult people (wish I'd had this book two jobs ago), the majority of the book simply describes what the ideal workplace for an HSP would be like. The author's conclusion is that HSPs are best suited for self-employment in a creative field. OK, great. Where Ms. Jaeger falls short is in providing practical advice for how to find or create that type of work situation. Obviously she conducted multiple interviews to get the personal stories that are sprinkled through the chapters. Most interview subjects are creative professionals, yet the most they say is something like, "I really love my job. Now I feel like I'm doing the work I was born for!" NO ONE talks about what they did to establish themselves (classes? training? trust fund? luck?), or how they stay in business (for instance, as an introvert, how do you effectively market your services/products to new clients?). Being an HSP who's considering self-employment, I found it frustrating to read a so-called "career guide" that in essence told me things I already know. Yes, I know I'd work best in an enviroment where I pick my own hours, have soothing lighting, and friendly coworkers. And sure, I want to find my Calling. But simply telling me to "keep working on yourself, and eventually you'll find your true Calling" really doesn't do much for me. Would have enjoyed this book more if the author had included a chapter in which her interview subjects shared personal stories of the steps (esoteric as well as practical) that they took to find their Callings.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Affirming but does not work 15 novembre 2004
Par lighthearted - Publié sur Amazon.com
I so looked forward to getting this book - it's title set an expectation that it may reveal some action(s) to be taken on the path to career fulfillment. It was scattered and a bit shallow, leaving it hard to believe the author "owned" the knowledge claiming to be shared. There were quite a few affirming lines, little new information about being highly sensitive, and no solutions to follow up the conclusions drawn. I found the writing ruminating at times and missing the self discipline and focus that is touted as necessary to make work work. I'm sorely disappointed and would not recommend it to anyone who's in a poor work state or in transition - this book simply observes what it is like to be there and doesn't offer much to help you out.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 230 pages for one piece of advice 13 février 2011
Par Leser - Publié sur Amazon.com
To be honest, I felt cheated by this book. This book is not about making work work for the highly sensitive person. It gives one single piece of advice, which is: find another job or become self-employed. A majority of the book is spent explaining the author's concept of drudgery and craft several times. The concept basically states that if you are overqualified for a job or if there are other issues with your job, you should find a new job. There are one or two interesting insights, such as highly sensitive people tending to take routine or easy jobs because they can't deal with the stress, but then being frustrated by the lack of challenge. More of that and less repetitive explanations of some concept would have been so much better.
Then, the author doesn't offer solutions other than switching jobs. There were a few passages where I thought that she would give information on how to deal with difficult situations, how to work on thinking patterns etc. But those passages ended abruptly or lead back to the overly used explanations of the Drudgery concept.
So what about those who can't switch their jobs, have already done so several times without improvement or for whom self-employment is not an option or has not worked out? There is absolutely no advice for them. I had high hopes for this book, but was utterly disappointed. The author interviewed several people, which is a good concept, but apparently all of them managed to get into self-employment. Good for them, but not helpful for the reader. There was no information volunteered by them on how they dealt with difficult situations (apart from locking themselves in the lavatory or blocking calls and hiding in the office). Are there really no people who could have offered good practical advice or experiences in the interviews?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 HSP's are Not "Too Sensitive"! 6 janvier 2004
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Dr. Jaeger has provided a clear, concise and highly readable book for those who have been told they're "way too sensitive." As someone who heard these words my entire life, I found this book validating that my ability to be in-tune with those around me, creative, curious, and an information sponge interested in new things is NOT a fatal flaw. Rather, these attributes are strengths, and ones that the world of work can and does need from me. Dr. Jaeger's book helped me see specific techniques for thriving in a business world where my sensitivity is an asset.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Required reading for HSPs 24 juillet 2009
Par Learner - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
If you are an HSP, this book is required reading. It's that good.

This has been a life-changing book for me. There is so much good information and advice here. This book describes me exactly, and the advice it gives seems right on. I am now working on implementing the author's advice in my life. This book has given me great understanding and hope. I can't recommend this highly enough.

Unfortunately, I originally ignored this book because of a review I saw here where someone said the book boiled down to just "HSPs need to work for themselves." This person could not have read this book. This books is much more than that. It shows you how to grow toward finding work that you like, and even love.

Looking back again over the reviews here, it seems to me many of the negative reviewers did not understand the main points in this book. There is no quick fix, although this book does give invaluable guidance. The author's point is that you need to grow in order to progress from Drudgery, to Craft, to Calling. This book explains the areas you will need to grow in, especially areas particular to HSPs, in order to progress to finding work that works for you.

I sense that many HSPs have almost given up on finding work that works for them. I can completely understand this, I've been there. But I think if HSPs will give this book a chance, it can provide a framework to build on. There is hope. You can find your path in this world that works for you.
