Career Well-Being

Definition:

Gallop polls show that career well-being has nothing to do with money, or "financial" well-being.

Those who rated themselves high on the career well-being scale have a few similarities:

  • Challenged every day to use their strengths
  • Encouraged to grow
  • Passionate about their work
  • Teams they enjoy working with
  • Individuals they enjoy working with
  • Well-planned goals
  • Friends that share their passion

 

The sense of career well-being is found through contributing to and
connecting with a community,  and working together for the common good.

Cooperation is the key!

  • Insightful higher thinking
  • Unity, equality and inclusion
  • Holacracy instead of hierarchy
  • Co-ops and Worker-Owned Businesses
  • Projects to work on collaboratively
  • Working together for the common good
  • An end to hierarchy and force
  • Seeing the more subtle needs of each human being
  • Greater well-being is the bottom line

Life Purpose

Our career path is how we contribute our strengths to our community, and create a supportive
environment that provides opportunity for growth.

 

Personal Well-Being

Definition:

Whether we get paid or not, Personal Well-Being is based upon these factors:

  • 1- What we do has meaning.
  • 2- What we do uses our strengths.
  • 3- What we do gives us something to look forward to.
  • 4- What we do involves friends and/or family who share a common mission.

We want more than “an education.”

We want more than "a job."

We want more than "a career."

Humans do best when we are able to combine our jobs, our careers, our gifts and our life purpose into one opportunity to serve humanity.

Those who had a best friend at work reported greater "personal well-being." People with greater "personal well-being" are more productive and perform better at their jobs.

We believe that careers must be chosen based upon personal passions and strengths aimed at the highest purpose and the greatest need nearby and around the world.

Humans love to learn and be challenged to solve problems.  We want to learn at our own pace and come to our own conclusions. We want the freedom to discover the answers for ourselves.  We want whatever we do with our time to have meaning and purpose.  Otherwise boredom sets in and we lose interest.

  1. Years ago, people looked for whatever stable job or career they could find, fir survival, to pay bills, to support their families. They did not enjoy going the work, but waited until the weekend and vacations to enjoy their time.

    Unfortunately that left the majority of their lives doing things they didn’t like, or hated just to get a pay check.How sad!

    How great you find something to fo that resonates with your soul, something you LOVE to do, something that challenges you! Imagine how much more would be produced, how many more glitches would be solved if the worker loved what he was doing!

  2. I do agree that career well-being is based upon these bullet points. I don’t have a career yet, but I do have a job mowing lawns. I believe my job meets the bullet points. It has meaning because the outcome of my job is nice looking lawns that are neatly cut, which makes me feel great. My job uses my strength and effort mowing lawns, making me feel fit and accomplished. my I look forward to doing my job. Right now I’m doing all the lawn work in my family, but what could make my job even better would be to have my brother helping me out.
