Being Buddha at work : 108 ancient truths on change, stress, money, and success by Franz Metcalf( Book )

There are lots of books that address how we should take care of ourselves, find calm, and enjoy happiness in a hectic work world. But few of those books apply the lessons of Buddhist thinking as resolution and guidance tools. These questions, though found in the modern day, are actually the core of all Buddha's teachings
Just add Buddha! : Buddhist solutions to hellish bosses, traffic jams, stubborn spouses, & other annoyances of everyday life by Franz Metcalf( Book )
6 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 60 libraries worldwide
Written for spiritual seekers who deal with unenlightened coworkers and inconsiderate bank tellers more often than Zen masters and Tibetan monks, this book demonstrates the practical side of Buddhism. Author Franz Metcalf shows how to weave simple vows, quick rethinks, instant relaxations, fast visualizations, and many other stripped-down Buddhist practices into every area of life. Individually, Metcalf's techniques work as quick fixes for specific dilemmas, but woven together, they gradually strengthen one's spiritual base when one day a habitual way of being has been quietly transformed. While not written to impress pure Buddhists, this book takes Buddhism seriously. Approachable sections on Buddhism's rich tradition and a sprinkling of quotes from ancient scripture and contemporary teachers connect the book's practices to the deeper wisdom underlying them. Always, Just Add Buddha remains squarely focused on daily life, drawing out the most practical aspects of Buddhism

Being Buddha at Work 108 Ancient Truths on Change, Stress, Money, and Success by B. J Gallagher( Sound Recording )
2 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
There are lots of books that address how we should take care of ourselves, find calm, and enjoy happiness in a hectic work world. But few of those books apply the lessons of Buddhist thinking as resolution and guidance tools. These questions, though found in the modern day, are actually the core of all Buddha's teachings: impermanence, suffering, and the quest for happiness (freedom from suffering). This makes Buddha the kind of consultant or coach we need today in the workplace. Following in the tradition of the authors' first best seller, this work goes on to explore and answer 101 dilemmas that we encounter at work, with topics that include time management, goal-setting, conflict, job dissatisfaction, unemployment, and even workplace trysts. The authors emphasise practical learning and coping, not esoteric insights or metaphysics, applying concrete solutions from Buddhist teachings to real problems in easily digestible chunks
