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.

A 2016 study by LinkedIn found that 74% of job candidates are looking for work which makes a difference to other people’s lives. The same study found that engagement and meaning is now crucial for an organisation’s overall success: in that year, 85% of companies with a strongly defined sense of purpose showed positive growth. Understanding and communicating a sense of purpose is quickly becoming essential when it comes to hiring the best talent and motivating staff to achieve results.

At The School of Life we believe that a flourishing workforce will find, in what they do, an expression of what they value. Because Emotional Intelligence is key to our overall mission, our focus lies on helping participants to explore their motivations and values – as well as that of their organisation – in order to develop greater self-awareness and foster a deeper sense of meaning in their daily assignments and projects.

In this two-hour session we will:

  • Draw connections between the higher-level purpose of the company and our daily work
  • Consider our personal talents and passions, and how they align with our role in the organisation
  • Rediscover our core motivations and values, and consider how to prioritise among them
  • Explore what we would like to be appreciated for at work and how we can show appreciation for others as well
