For many of us, the thought of work brings to mind a daily nine-to-five grind, reporting to disinterested supervisors, and ”working for the weekend.” You probably enter the office feeling disenchanted, counting down the minutes until 5 p.m. Whether this approach to work is due to feeling unrecognised for your work, being a cog in a corporate machine, or the influence of apathetic coworkers, there is something you likely forgot along the way, YOU, you are the one in the driver’s seat of your career.
Making the switch from a passive passenger to being the driver isn’t easy and there are no one-size-fits-all means of achieving this. Today’s episode offers various groundbreaking strategies to get more out of your work–including viewing yourself as a business owner and your place of work as the client.
Whether you are a front-line employee or a manager, today’s episode offers something for everyone trying to find meaning in their work.
