The Power of Passionate Work
Tell a Friend About This EventTell a Friend
 

Passion is more than just employee engagement, or job satisfaction, or the temporary bump in productivity that comes from getting a bonus. In any field of endeavor, passion is ultimately about the hunger to learn and grow. It shows up as an appetite for novelty and innovation, for making connections and a meaningful contribution to something you believe in, and taking risks not because it helps the bottom line but because it leads to more learning.

Passionate people operate from a sense of primary motivation, not secondary motivation—work for the charge and challenge of it, not the payoff. They are called, not just driven. They work from passion, not just ambition. And they work best in environments that help their passions to flourish—where there's a fit between who they are and what they do best; where they're given autonomy and support to take risks; and where they're given regular feedback and recognition.
This dynamic and hands-on seminar is designed around a series of self-reflective questions to help you identify passion not just in yourself but in those you lead and those you interview in the recruitment process.
Through writing, discussion, small-group work, brainstorming, and humor—and focusing primarily on yourself—you'll clarify what inspires passion in your own (work)life and what defeats it, where you do your best work and can make the most impact, what you're most passionately curious about, and (since passion comes from a word meaning to suffer) what work you're willing to suffer for and on behalf of?
