Serving People is Meaningful
The defining characteristic of meaningfulness is that a person’s work makes a difference in someone’s life.
Grind Destroys Meaningful Work
Promoting meaningful work is not enough, because there are opposing forces that we call “grind” which is destroying the meaning your people find in their job. Grind is the leading cause of frustration, stress, and anxiety arising from the work they do.
Grind [grīnd] \ noun:
Wear and tear caused by pressure to give what customers want, while being restrained in the ability to do so
Why Do People Quit?
People tend to leave their jobs when the level of frustration, stress, and anxiety arising from their work outweighs the level of personal meaningfulness they receive from it. Our studies show that together meaningful work and grind can predict over 65% of a person’s intent to quit.
The 5 Talents are the foundation that enables your people to experience more meaningful moments in their work.
