How to find meaning and motivation in one's job ?
In the fields of IT and technology, our individual contribution is not always easy to identify, mainly due to the system’s complexity and to the lack of feedback on our work. This phenomenon is sometimes amplified by a mismatch between our individual values and the ones of our company. This combination represents one of the main causes for losing meaning and motivation at work.
We’ll analyze the situation with the help of specific introspection tools, which will bring you more clarity on the topic and make it easier to act towards improving your situation.
How to build a fulfilling career, aligned with one's profound values and aspirations ?
What are the values that drive you, your passions and your aspirations? What do you really want to do? Which environment and type of work will allow you to be more fulfilled? Is all this in coherence with your current job and environment, and if not, what are the differences? What will you need to gain coherence on this topic?
You are going to explore these questions to gain more clarity on what a “fulfilling career” means for you.
How to identify and express our needs and healthy boundaries?
The main cause behind relationship problems is the lack of understanding of our needs and healthy boundaries, and of those of the surrounding persons.
We are going to explore how we can identify and put into words our needs and healthy boundaries. This exercise will also help us become more open and receptive to the needs and healthy boundaries of others.
How to give and ask for positive feedback ?
In today’s culture, we have the habit to communicate only the things that don’t go well. We are going to swim against this current by learning the art of positive feedback and its immense potential.
We’ll also learn how to ask for honest, constructive feedback that will allow us to progress and to better understand the gap between our perception and the perception of others.
How to better manage stress and overload ?
The demands of the IT and technological sectors are growing day by day. In the world of operations, complex systems have to be available 24/7, a fact which induces lots of pressure and of urgent demands, some of them outside working hours.
