The Future of Work
Could you and your team write an actionable purpose driven statement…focused on why you do what you do?
Work is more rewarding when it reflects and incorporates our deepest values and interests. Use the following questions to reflect on the deeper purposes of your work. See if they help you find more enjoyment and meaning in what you do every day.
Finding your purpose
Why does your work matter?
Why have you chosen to work at UC Berkeley? How does your work make a difference? Does your work reflect your personal values? How and why?
Focusing on growth
How am I growing and helping others to do the same?
What time and effort do you make to explore your personal interests and goals? How and when do you allow yourself to fail and learn from mistakes? Do you appropriately value striving as much as achieving?
What impact is my work having?
What have you seen change for the better because of your work? What need is being met by your work?
Developing Purpose Driven Relationships
What caring connections am I making with others?
How do you engage with and take care of others at work to encourage authentic contribution? Do you feel you are part of the University community? How, when and why?
How am I helping to make my workplace more purposeful?
Are you “authentic” at work and do you allow others to be also? Do you encourage and help to support values driven decision-making, planning and action? How?
