The Why of Work: How Great Leaders Build Abundant Organizations That Win - CSR Books
Meaning is not a dropped coin we pick up by chance. It is more like fine pottery we craft. People have to create the meaning of their work and their lives, and that process requires skill and practice, not just luck.
Those who succeed at creating meaning — either on their own or with the help of their boss — tend to work harder, more creatively, and with more tenacity, giving the companies that employ them a leg up in the marketplace. From what we know about how the human brain works, the ability to create meaning is also enhanced by challenge solving a problem that is not too hard or too easy , emotional safety fostered by friendship, fairness, and self-esteem , autonomy structure but not micromanagement , and, perhaps most importantly, learning from experienced meaning-makers.
In other words, we learn to create meaning like we learn most things — from watching and listening to others who do it well.
Enter the Leader. So how can leaders more systematically help employees find meaning at work? When you understand why we work, you know how to succeed.
