Purpose eergizes anyone and increases their perceived value in themselves and from those with whom they work. To know your individual "why" is to know how much your contributions add to the overall success of the organization’s mission and vision. Participants in this session will be able to reflect on four key areas that help them define what they find most rewarding for themselves and how to share it with the world.
This session requires deep introspection through meaningful questioning that as a byproduct yields personal inspiration for the individual participant. It forces everyone to slow down and ask the all-important "why" of the work they do. Knowing the why brings meaning and substance to the work which brings renewed energy to the worker and reduces the chances of turnover. Participants in this session will learn more about themselves and will find their confidence increased upon completion. They will also be challenged to act on their discoveries and find greater satisfaction in their jobs.
Work becomes mundane and routine for many employees because purpose is not regularly emphasized by leadership or considered by the worker. When purpose is not defined, the satisfaction that can come from a job well done doesn’t fully bloom. Morale ebbs and flows, and the work becomes harder to appreciate when it doesn"t seem to serve any purpose.
Jobs can lose their deeper meaning when approached superficially and viewed only as a means to survival. Employees don’t feel obligated to put forth their best when they don’t have a "why" associated with their work, and it is not unusual for them to start looking elsewhere to re-energize what they feel they are missing.
