My Why My Ikigai

This incredibly powerful workshop is based on the Barrett Values PVA tool and will give participants to opportunity to understand more about their own values and the potential values of their team members to be able to harness these more effectively in pursuit of the organisation's purpose.

My Why My Ikigai

In the race to attract and keep the best talent, organisations need to understand that purpose matters. Employees can only really truly engage with the work they do once they understand their own purpose and align that purpose with the organisation’s. This unlocks their sense of doing meaningful work and personal fulfilment. Leaders must understand and model purposeful leadership to be able to inspire effectively and to engage their employees effectively.
