Reignite Your Inner Drive online workshop
Tuesday 25 January, 18:00 – 19:30 GMT
Do you ever feel as though you are just going through the motions?
The last 20 months has left many of us feel as though we are ‘languishing’. The incidence of full-on depression has more than doubled in many countries but for the majority of us, it’s the “blah” feeling that’s hurting us the most. We feel burnt out and devoid of a greater sense of Purpose at work. However, it does not have to be this way. If we tap into our intrinsic motivation, we can set ourselves up for lasting fulfilment and success not just in our work, but in all the key areas of our lives. In this lively virtual workshop, Sharath Jeevan will re-energise members following the “languishing year” of the pandemic and set them up to thrive emotionally as they return to in person work.
Through a series of creative practical activities and personal reflection exercises, you will learn how to:
– Emerge from this current languishing period to reframe your work in a way that deeply motivates us as individuals and collectively as organisations
– Achieve the true Purpose of your work and see its major role in helping and serving others, rather than as a means of just providing income
– Use ‘guided Autonomy’ to take greater ownership of your work and drive it
– Find broader development opportunities or ‘smart Mastery essentials’ in your work, and devote enough time to them to make the rest of your work whole
– Create a “personal New Deal” in your own Working Life, and with your colleagues and your managers.
