10 Steps to Fulfilment at Work
For those interested, the full report (including links to useful podcasts, video and worksheets) is given in link http://www.blueprintforbusiness.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/Blueprint_FulfilmentAtWork_Jan2018.pdf
But for those with less time, please find below our summary:
1. Realise your impact. We all make an impact through our choices, our relationships and our behaviour. Understanding these and making positive choices can help us feel more fulfilled.
2. Uncover your purpose at work. Try to understand how your purpose aligns to that of your organisation. If you don’t feel fulfilled, perhaps you need to explore how you can realign.
3. Seek inspiration from new places. The things that you do in your spare time can help you come up with new ideas in your workplace.
4. Be less anxious about giving feedback. Giving feedback is not easy and most of us feel uncomfortable doing it or don’t feel that we handle it well. Tips that can help are, be prepared, be specific, keep it balanced, acknowledge that people have feelings, don’t name or shame, and make it actionable.
5. Slow down to speed up. “People are more fulfilled, and businesses are more productive when action is deliberate and conscious”.
6. Make time for others. Give yourself space and time to build stronger relationships with those you work with. Failure to do this can lead to feelings of isolation and of being disconnected from your team.
7. Address uncomfortable situations. A recent survey of 1000 professionals showed that 55% of people have been asked to do something or witnessed something that made them feel uncomfortable at work: 1 in 6 changed jobs as a result. Other findings from the same survey were:
· Only 10% of company employees think that company decision making is aligned to purpose.
· Only 17% feel that their company understands what motivates them.
· Only 20% believe that financial incentives are motivating.
· 50% do not have a role model at work.
8. Stop managing, start supporting. Giving people the freedom (and support) to be involved in the decision-making process will encourage creativity and innovation as well as a shared sense of responsibility.
9. Look for a new perspective. Actively seek out new perspectives of doing things. This can help build stronger relationships and cultivate a happier workplace.
10. Bring your whole self to work. A recurring theme in large company surveys is the number of disengaged people. This disconnect represents a great loss of human and organisational potential. Bringing our whole selves to work is actually about creating cultures and environments that allow relationships to flourish.
