The Truth Behind Engaged Living

The Truth Behind Engaged Living
From Recruiter - November 28, 2016

Beware the barrenness of a busy life.Socrates

Effective personal change rarely happens without self-inquiry. I know this is true because the early portions of our programs at Inspired Work are focused on creating such a compelling vision that participants become willing to change themselves in order to achieveit. Translating vision into reality is one of the greatest of human experiences. The journey elevates lives and orchestrates growth.

Without clearly defined personal missions, visions, and purposes, we operate in states of aimlessness and barrenness. We clock in, and we clock out.

Years ago, when I ran staffing companies, I became used to the request, Get me another jobjust like the one I hated. While that sounds harsh, consider how many of us never stop to engage in the kind of self-exploration that leads us to the lives we want.

Great leaders recognize that stakeholders become engaged when we help them access what they most want out of their work, their lives, and their careers. As we develop the skills of self-inquiry, the process becomes lighter. Itis enlightening and produces environments where dreams and ambitions live in the light of transparency. We are able to support each other in pursuing the lives we wantlives that are as personalized and as clearly defined as our thumbprints. We are able to discuss our awareness and our fears of falling out of step with change. The discussions lead to solutions. When we develop that kind of clarity, we become willing to experience the discomfort associated with reinvention and change.

How do I know this?

Because Ive watched participants define the lives they want to have.
