Don’t Hate


If you are feeling the stress of your job, or just not loving it any more, then it is time to make a change. This does not necessarily mean changing your job altogether. You may be in your chosen career, but simply in a rut that you cannot seem to get out of. Engagement might have a lot to do with it, and only 30% of American workers feel engaged on the job. From the Times we learn that “employees are vastly more satisfied and productive when four of their core needs are met: physical, through opportunities to regularly renew and recharge at work; emotional, by feeling valued and appreciated for their contributions; mental, when they have the opportunity to focus in an absorbed way on their most important tasks and define when and where they get their work done; and spiritual, by doing more of what they do best and enjoy most, and by feeling connected to a higher purpose at work.” Which of those are you missing? Perhaps more importantly, which of those are you not cultivating within your team?
