    Individually we want to be actively engaged in creating and constructing our lives and careers. We are also relational beings, we experience meaning and a sense of connection through collaboration and being engaged with others and the world around us. We are motivated to contribute to our families, to our work and the communities we are part of as this gives us an energized feeling of purpose and value. Ideally, we want our aspirations, values, passions, interests, personality, education and unique experiences to be aligned with our work lives. This alignment or congruence is experienced as "best fit", as personally authentic, more importantly it is the key to fulfillment and enriches our career path(s).

  • The Link Between Fulfilling Work And Burnout

    10/30/2018

    We often assume that fulfilling work, work that we are passionately engaged in, will provide us with a protective barrier and immunity from burnout. There is in fact a strong link between fulfilling work and burnout. I have witnessed this frequently in the helping professions, among care givers, relief and aid workers, and first responders. But I have also witnessed this link in clients from quite different professions. Common to all these individuals is the difficulty they have (understandably) in reconciling the passion they have/had for their work with the very real symptoms of burnout that they are experiencing.

I truly feel it is about looking at the task at hand and breaking it into pieces to fit the strengths of each individual person”.
