Day 1 - Meaning at work lead by Danny Gutknecht
Transformative Approaches to the Development of Personal and Organizational Potential
What makes people great? How can an organization create an environment that increases the chances of its people achieving their full potential? Creating true win- win scenarios.
We spend most of our waking lives on the job, but research shows most of us have little meaningful connection to the work we do. We can’t see how it contributes to something that matters to us or the organization on a deep level. This can lead to poor habits, lackluster performance and unfulfilling relationships with the organizations we work for. We have a fundamental human need to work at something that matters to us. When we can’t manifest it in our organizations, everyone suffers.
Danny Gutknecht, author of Meaning at Work, has pioneered developments in personal and organizational meaning. He and his team have collected and analyzed more than 20,000 hours of data to uncover the hidden structure culture and connection between individual and organizational potential through an exploration of what each finds meaningful. They’ve spent 20 years developing a process anyone can use to find meaning at work.
For leaders, as well as individuals, this class decodes meaning, personal potential and a life of significant contribution. The models and frameworks we will explore help organize complex business and cultural problem into paradigms that people can understand, process and implement to grow successful teams and organizations.
Whether a company founder or the newest member of the front line team, everyone wants to work at something that matters, with people who share that conviction. That’s not something a leader can teach. It’s something you have to discover and elicit, dealing with the complexity of employees who differ in age, gender, cultural background, experience and many other factors. It requires building a common language, together.
That’s what we will explore together in this class. Discover your own meaning and share meaning so you can all reach your unique potential, and steward the organization’s unique potential, together.
Day 2 - Overcoming Obstacles and the Fear of Failure
High impact decision-making: The rubber needs to meet the road and in our HID exercise this is exactly what we do. It’s a 3 stage process for taking control of their day. Everyone has issues that cause pain points in their professional day. The HID exercise is the process our teams run through to identify these pain points, choose one and then create a plan for change.
Overcoming the Fear of Failure: We have participants run through 8 simple, yet challenging tasks: 4 individual tasks that the participants have to complete in under a minute, 2 paired tasks that must be completed in under 2 minutes, and 2 team tasks that are to be completed in under 5 minutes. Then we change it up in a few very interesting ways.
We look forward to seeing you there, and sharing an awesome experince with you!
