‘Walter’s Career Guide: Why Getting a Job is Not Enough (Series Training and Consulting, Vol. 1)’ by Peter Fritz Walter.
‘Walter’s Career Guide: Why Getting a Job is Not Enough (Series Training and Consulting, Vol. 1)’ presents a fresh approach to brainsmart effective learning and career design, for young audiences.
The book doesn’t offer quick fixes for developing your career. It presents an approach to raise the awareness level of the whole of the person. The author contends that true selfhelp must encourage the reader to be critical in the first place, and develop their self-thinking abilities, which is one quality of several when designing a first-hand life and becoming truly responsible for your destiny.
To be critical means to question tradition and authority, in the first place and to rely on your god-given gifts and talents. We are all unique individuals, with each of us coming into the career arena with a treasure box of personal talents and skills. While our educational systems do not encourage our individuation, nor acknowledge our individuality, we need as creative people swim against the stream and develop ourselves not because, but despite we received a ‘good education.’
The main focus of the guide is upon developing and using creativity as a primary tool for personal growth and expansion, and further, the creative expansion of the whole self.
The author’s approach is holistic and spiritual in the sense that it considers the human being as a functional and organic unit embedded in a contextual and systemic environment, which is primarily self-organizing and driven by an inner program. We are directing our destinies through the inner programs we are writing, while most people do this unconsciously. From the moment we begin to take charge of our lives and begin living a first-hand life, we begin to consciously direct our destiny. We do this first of all by reprogramming ourselves.
There are few selfhelp guides that are deliberately holistic in their approach, that offer an encyclopedic approach to knowledge, which encompasses non-mainstream knowledge, that are beyond giving quick fixes and that are academic in the sense to be based on almost three decades of academic research. This book gives you the key to begin leading a first-hand life, a life of your own creation!
The book comes with a complete contextual Bibliography.
