TEDx Talk: Dan Ariely – The importance of finding meaning in work

Another TED talk post but this is too good not to post.

The messages about the increasing central importance of finding meaning, ownership and creative pride in modern workplace roles are ones which Careers Advisers should hold in very high regard. Enabling clients to discover and admit their own motivations and values is a valuable talent for advisers to all age groups.

There are also salient points for leaders in all organisations who need to make space for acknowledgement and recognition which then feeds motivation and productivity.

I also loved the lesson about the IKEA business model being inbuilt with the fulfilling and satisfying factors which help strengthen the bond between consumer, product and brand.

A really interesting watch.
