Purpose - Professional Workshop
In this two-hour session, we will:
• Rediscover our motivations and values and learn to prioritise among them.
• Explore five different areas of work in which we can find meaning.
• Spend time reflecting on our professional role and its place in our organisation.
• Create an action plan which helps us scale up our deeper sense of purpose.
What characterises mastery of this skill?
Employees with a strong sense of purpose understand the good it does in the world at large. They identify what is most important to them and make peace with necessary sacrifices. With a realistic outlook, they adjust expectations and feel fulfilled. They talk enthusiastically about their job and create a positive atmosphere.
What characterises a lack of this skill?
Employees with a lack of purpose at work are detached from how their job contributes to a greater good or a personal value. They might feel bored and dissatisfied and regularly complain about it. As a result, employees lacking purpose struggle with motivation and might work as little as possible, demonstrating low job performance.
