Meaning Makers: How Social Leaders Help Employees Do Work That Matters

Do you know your purpose in the workplace? Does your team have a sense of purpose? If you answered ‘I don’t know’ to either of these questions then it might be time for a workplace revolution.

Finding purpose and meaningful work might sound like buzzwords but their impact in the workplace can create cohesion and drive success. Imagine how productive and optimistic your workplace would be if everyone understood their purpose in the organization?

So how can we, as social leaders, help foster meaningful and purpose-driven work? What must we do to integrate these two constructs into our organizations?

#SocialLeader chat is primed to answered these questions and a few others on Monday night. Here’s what we will be discussing:


Q1: Why is it important to integrate meaning and purpose in the workplace… isn’t a paycheck enough? #SocialLeader

Q2: In your career, what one job or role was the least meaningful for you… and what inspired you to leave? #SocialLeader

Q3: How does it feel when you do work that’s meaningful? How does it contribute to a purposeful life? #SocialLeader

Q4: How do organizations benefit from aligning workplace purpose to the personal goals of employees? #SocialLeader

Q5: How do #BlueUnicorns help employees find meaning in their work? Where can we have the most impact? #SocialLeader

Q6: In legacy industries without the newest or hottest products, how do we turn mundane into meaningful? #SocialLeader

Q7: What do you say to a colleague who isn’t inspired to do amazing work… who obviously isn’t happy? #SocialLeader

Q8: Which meaning makers inspire you to make work matter… to be a meaning maker yourself? We want names! #SocialLeader

Please join us for another rebellious discussion Monday night at 8pm ET and feel free to invite your community too!

    There’s a more human way to do business.

    In the Social Age, it’s how we engage with customers, collaborators and strategic partners that matters; it’s how we create workplace optimism that sets us apart; it’s how we recruit, retain (and repel) employees that becomes our differentiator. This isn’t a “people first, profits second” movement, but a “profits as a direct result of putting people first” movement.
