Day-to-day work can all too easily make us feel bored or burnt out. For many of us, this is when we start fantasising about changing careers. But what we most often need is to feel reconnected to our underlying values and the long-term impact of the work at hand.

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


‘It made me realise that you should value your work and the impact you have on others’

'Remembering purpose, both the greater good and in my life, is crucial to getting the most out of work’

‘I learned that there is value in every task’.

“I would live my life in nonchalance and insouciance, were it not for making a living, which is rather a nouciance.”

Ogden Nash
