About this Book:

There is value in taking poetry to work, and finding the poetry that's already there. Publications like Harvard Business Review and FastCompany are starting to write about the power of poetry—noting poetry's effectiveness in building creative thinkers and problem solvers.

Yet there is no single source to guide those who are *at work* every day, with little direction for how to explore the power of poetry in the workplace. Glynn Young's Poetry at Work is that guide.

From discussions about how poetry is built into the very fabric of work, to practical suggestions on how to be a poet at work, this is a book that meets a very real need. More than just philosophy, this book brings the hope of practice and surprising discovery, the benefits of stress relief and increased accomplishment.
