We want our lives to matter. Our purposes include such endeavors as artistic expression, connecting to social groups, work, volunteering, religion and family. A sense of personal purpose is important to both individual health and to work performance. This training features 26 field-tested initiatives that have been used by organizations to support a sense of purpose. You can select those approaches to purpose that are well suited to your workgroup.
The training begins with a 15 minute video that reviews key ideas and the evidence for the importance of purpose to health and productivity. The presentation is delivered by Judd Allen, Ph.D., Richard Safeer, MD and Gillian Pieper, MS. The training includes 26 podcast episodes that describe an opportunity to support purpose at work. One episode is delivered daily. The goal is to select a few actions that are a good fit for your workgroup. The final self-assessment evaluates your efforts to support purpose.
These 26 field-tested initiatives for supporting a sense of purpose first appeared in the book Leading for Purpose: How to Help Your People and Organization Benefit from the Pursuit of Purpose, by Judd Allen, Ph.D. and Donald B. Ardell, Ph.D.
