Do you step out for your work day with a buzz, ready to take on the working day?
If yes, good for you – surely a key to a satisfying career. But for those without the buzz, an empty work day beckons. Now stop and reflect on that emptiness.
Have you considered your values?
Things like integrity, status or stability. Or challenge, freedom and autonomy.
Are they aligned with your current role?
Imagine the worker who values the community but works in an organisation that places the individual before others. I know of the former stockbroker who has found re-invigorated meaning in his working day by now working with animals.
Before a call to your recruitment agent
A place to begin is by a review of your values. There are lists of values that a Google search will produce for you. Set aside 10 – 60 minutes for reflection. Start by creating a top 10, then whittle that down to your top 5. Write down a time when you really lived each of those values and how it made you feel. Next rank those 5 from most important to least. Now think about how your work is aligned with your values?
There is no right or wrong answer here.
Your values are yours. And with that greater sense of self-awareness, the buzz can be yours.
I always found your recruits a higher standard and your screening better.
Loved your insight into motivation, brought back memories. I’ve now been appointed as HSE Advisor for SA in a shared national role. I subscribed to your Leadership Insights Series to start the old grey matter up again.
