30 Ways to Shine as a New Employee:
A Guide to Success in the Workplace

Author: Denise Bissonnette
Soft cover, 130-page Workbook

"The ability to get a job has only a casual relationship
to the ability to keep one!"

- Denise Bissonnette (Author)

As a stand-alone guide for someone newly-entering the workforce, as a refreshing guide for reclaiming our own spirits at work, as a pre-employment primer, or as a template for on-the-job mentoring, 30 Ways to Shine is both engaging and illuminating.

Each of the thirty skills in this book is accompanied by simple tasks that can be acted on right away - enhancing the likelihood of success on the job. As a tool for excelling in our jobs, this little book connects us to the true power and influence that we all wield in our workplaces. It encourages us to bring all that we are to our work lives. It gives strategic advice on how to manage conflict and change.

In the context of "livelihood" as a journey, it prompts us to use even the most menial jobs as opportunities for growth and development.

30 Ways to Shine was developed to be used by companies as part of an orientation program for new employees or as the basis for new-hire Mentoring programs. It is also being used effectively by placement agencies for pre-employment workshops and/or post-placement job stabilizing services.
