Passion in the Workplace: How to keep loving your living...come what may

February 7, 2006, Toronto - If we don't love what we do, and the company and the people we do it for and with, the personal and professional cost could be a broken heart. Nina Spencer, Canadian motivational keynote speaker and author of the acclaimed newsletter, Working Wisdom says, "The majority of heart attacks in men occur between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m. on a Monday morning. For too many people, Monday is Doomsday."

Ms. Spencer adds, "If your love affair with work has waned over time, you may be faced with some tough choices about your job: 1) Love it 2) Leave it 3) Change it or 4) Stay and hate it. 'Love it' speaks for itself. 'Leave it' is always an option, but sometimes a choice many don't want, depending on years invested, financial obligations or emotional commitments, etc."

"The choice to 'Stay and hate it' can kill the energy and productivity of the individual and the entire team. People who stay and hate their jobs usually end up being 'workplace road kill.' That just leaves 'change it'. After two decades of organizational development research and experience I have identified eight passion points that help reclaim that zest for work and empower people to grab their professional life by the ankles and give it a fling!"

Launching her new book, Getting Passion Out of Your Profession: How to keep loving your living & come what may on Valentine's Day, Ms. Spencer shows people how to get back to the early days of loving the good work they perform. She is a recurring guest of radio and television programs, and has been profiled by such publications as The Globe and Mail, Toronto Star and Chatelaine Magazine.
