Without a sense of meaning we lose drive, focus and direction. The ability to find meaning provides less mental stress, fewer sick days, counteracts frustration, doubt and inner emptiness. Two factors are conducive to the experience of meaning:
• A leader's personal perspective on the question of meaning
• Leadership development of meaning as intelligence and capital
As a manager, you need to support employees' sense of meaning both in life and at work. You must be able to set the stage for the individual to spot meaningful answers to these fundamental questions:
• Why do I get up every day?
• What is the meaning of my life?
• Is my work meaningful?
Meaning as capital and intelligence is the fundamental basis for growth potential both in yourself as a leader and in the company you are part of.
The methods in meaning psychology are about transformation by turning challenges and crises into strength, profit and energy. These are tools designed to enable people to build meaningful work and life despite obstacles and setbacks.
Meaning-based Leadership gives you concrete tools to develop an organizational ecosystem for meaningfulness both for yourself and for your company.
