You only need one reason to listen to this episode: mattering at work really matters.
For millions of employees, going to work can be a drag. Couple that with the fact that we spend more than a third of our lives at work. Yet somehow, employers and managers have figured out how to make it even worse. It’s no wonder why so many workers just show up for a paycheck and flip jobs for a 50 cent raise. Instead of honoring our human instinct for significance, managers focus on getting us to connect with the team without actually making us feel appreciated or valued. Talk about missing the mark!
Zach Mercurio is crystal clear on what matters and he knows what he’s talking about: belonging isn’t enough, it’s all about feeling like you make a real difference. Merely having a purpose isn't sufficient - you must feel purposeful!
