The powerful almost visceral push of what we desire and the extraordinary pull or our calling is becoming more and important to a new generation of employees and a new era.
As leaders and followers we all need to think hard about the questions being asked by individuals as we emerge from the vortex of change; here’s an interesting article from HBR:
Together in teams, sessions posing these key life and work questions can be extraordinary uplifting and informative.
What are you really good at doing?
What do you totally love or enjoy?
What feels most useful to you about your work?
What creates a sense of forward momentum
HOW do you truly relate to others?
This series of questions helps to identify strengths and opportunities, plus build back better together options.
Individuals and teams can find or rediscover what they love about work, to help highlight the inherent value of certain work and to help them advance toward future goals.
And the questions encourage people to think about and foster relationships that make work more meaningful.
How might you answer these questions for yourself?
How can you use them to support your colleagues through change?
