Orem, UT, January 27, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- Many people feel like they’ve lost control when it comes creating - or even finding - fulfilling, purpose-driven careers. Zenger Folkman has identified three simple steps to help individuals regain control, create more meaning in your work, and find activities that will add up to their best and most fulfilling year yet.
“Possibly, the most common mistake people make attempting to create meaning and purpose is thinking that they need to find the one single thing with world-changing impact,” said Jack Zenger, CEO of Zenger Folkman. “The truth is not everyone is destined to leave a legacy like an Aristotle, Mother Teresa, or Steve Jobs. To be clear, the danger is not in the desire to positively impact the world, but that waiting for that world-changing purpose keeps us stuck dreaming rather than taking part in something meaningful right now. So, simplify it. Take the weight out of it.”
The key to making your career more meaningful is discovering a few things about yourself:
1. Your competence: What skills do you possess? What behaviors are your strengths?
2. Your passions: What activities bring you personal satisfaction and energize you?
3. Your organization’s needs: How can you impact the success of your organization?
These three things will help any individual with focusing not just on their individual strengths and likes, but marrying those with what the organization actually needs. Finding that “sweet spot” is the key to unlocking these personal career highs that will make your career more exciting and fulfilling.
