Want to join Marjo Lips-Wiersma taking you through a "map of meaning" helping you create a more meaningful workplace?

Marjo Lips-wiersmaebbf member Marjo Lips-Wiersma was one of the participants at the recent ebbf annual conference and also a world expert in the area of Meaningful Work. She will now run a one-off three day workshop on meaningful work in the Netherlands together with Lani Morris (Msc in sustainability and action inquiry from Bath University) Their book on meaningful work, The Map of Meaning has just sold out and they are working on a second edition, which will include case studies of the implementation of their work by many of the participants of their workshops.

We asked Marjo, what are some of the key findings about Meaningful Work?

1)      Blue, pink and white collar workers have the same desire for meaningful work.

2)      Leadership, as it is presently done, does not create meaningful work.

3)      Corporate Social/Environmental Responsibility does not, in itself, create meaningful work.

4)      Meaningful work does not only require consultation, but also the power to change one’s circumstances (the culture and structure of the organisation)

5)      Given their innate spiritual capacity, human beings know what is meaningful (but forget or have too many obstacles put in their way

6)      Creating meaningful work is a bottom up rather than top down process

7)      Meaningful work is holistic concept and as such is  much more than making a difference, or finding one’s life purpose, alone.

Do you want to know how to co-create meaningful work  based on solid-peer-reviewed research findings and ongoing action learning from our by now hundreds of workshop participants? Do you want to immediately apply the workshop knowledge/together with your own expertise and wisdom ? Would you like to generate a case study for the second edition of our book? Would you like the opportunity (but you can decide post-workshop) to become a certified Meaningful Work practitioner through and action learning/reflection/accompaniment process? If so join her workshop.

To see if this one-off opportunity is for you, please go to:  http://www.inpractice.nl/agenda/10-06-2016_introduction+to+the+map+of+meaningful+work/

Marjo is New-Zealand based where she is a Professor/Hoogleraar in Sustainability and Ethics Leadership. She works  in the US, Scandinavia, UK (Oxford) and Europe. The workshop material is designed to be immediately  actioned  and to be used in multiple settings – personal, group, community and organisation.
