Are you thriving at work?
Work is central to our sense of identity, our family dynamics, and our motivation. We spend more time on the job than we do in almost any other aspect of our lives. And yet according to Gallup and numerous other studies of employees today, most people report feeling disengaged, disconnected, and dispirited on the job most of the time.
That’s just not right!
A great work fit brings us joy, connection, and meaning, and when we are misfit in a job, it affects everything we do and how we do it. This, in turn, affects the results of our organization.
We believe happiness at work is not actually a magical result of getting lucky. It comes from knowing your needs and being bold in finding the environment in which those needs are met. It takes self-awareness and an ability to assess work fit from the outside of an organization. Our conversations with hundreds of people has led us to a practical approach that works.
You can thrive at work, and when you do, you will find more joy and fulfillment, get results for your organization and ultimately, make the world better. Lets get on it!
