Trying to get at the nexus between career and life, or say  between the working self and the whole self, is a pretty standard trope in the realm of career consulting / career advice. Less often do you hear any talk about how all this is impacting one's "soul."

In her new ebook, The 7 Most Soul-Sucking Career Mistakes Ever (and How to Avoid Them) career guruChristine Livingston freely uses the s word (that's soul,of course) in describing how our careers can disconnect us from who we are as people -- and why you ought to be concerned about what your job is doing to your soul, whether you believe you have one or not.

Christine joins us on this week's audio edition of theTransparency Revolution. We discuss the major disconnect that often exists between what people value and what they do for a living...and what can be done about that disconnect. Plus we explore a similar gap between what corporations might claim they are concerned about when they promote ideas such as "engagement" and "work-life balance," and what they are actually concerned about.

Hint: they are actually concerned about making money.

Tune in to learn how successful organizations and individuals might just be those who can come right out and admit what motivates them and what they are trying to accomplish.
