David Goetsch writes book of faith-based career advice
Northwest Florida Daily News - February 4, 2019
More than 70 college textbooks and corporate training books bear the name of the Northwest Florida State College emeritus vice president and business professor, but the book he released Jan. 1 will sit in the Christian aisle. Goetsch wrote “Christians on the Job: Winning at Work without Compromising Your Faith” after many people approached him for counsel on the subject.
“The people who come to me are Christians who are wondering, ‘Can I even succeed in today’s workplace and be faithful to what I believe?’” Goetsch said. “The point I make in the book is, not only can you, but in the long run, that’s going to be what makes you succeed.”
The genre isn’t the only difference this book has from the others by Goetsch. It’s also the first one he wrote in his Niceville home office.
Because Goetsch counsels Christians regularly, the subject matter came quickly.......
America is populated by people of every race, religion, nationality, worldview, sexual identity, and culture in the world. As a result, it is one of the most diverse countries in the planet. If handled well, human diversity can be an asset to organizations, communities, and our country. But if handled poorly, diversity can divide people into feuding factions based on race, gender, age, education, culture, religion, politics, worldviews, sexual orientation, and other factors.
The modern workplace can be a difficult environment for Christians. There are the age-old problems of temptation, peer pressure, and the desire to fit in, but now you can add anti-Christian bias, political correctness, and even persecution to the list of challenges Christians sometimes face at work. In recent years, the number of believers who have approached me for counseling concerning faith-related dilemmas at work has increased markedly.
