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-Based Leadership teaches leaders to unlock the secret to developing meaningful work and life. It is based on the life-changing meaning psychology by professor Viktor E. Frankl.
