We all want fulfillment in our jobs.
This includes seeing meaning in what we do. We strive to develop our talents and skills and to deepen our social relationships in a self-determined way. Actively shaping our everyday professional life helps us to experience joy in our own development, regardless of whether we are currently in a phase of reorientation, looking for a job, or simply curious about opportunities for development.
For companies and managers, this is especially exciting because jobcrafting is described as a way to create a greater fit between the individual, the job, and the organization. It is a creative way to enrich and expand job profiles, or to find solutions when “there is trouble brewing.”
We have developed a unique Job Crafting Canvas and an associated questioning technique, incorporating all our years of experience in recruiting, HR management and career consulting. Of course, aspects of logotherapy and innovation research have also been applied.
By working through the Canvas, everyone is able to realize the (professional) purpose, mission and goals in practical added value.
We start with the personality and individual values. We use already made experiences and talents as well as currently available resources and integrate the reflection of the social environment as well as the personal habit of building relationships. We are guided by the tasks and activities at hand, for whom and with whom one would like to work. The commitment (e.g. time and effort) one intends to invest in the job every day can be determined by everyone.
From all these pieces of the puzzle, you develop a coherent picture and from this you get practical solutions that you can implement immediately. This makes it possible to take small effortless steps without having to reinvent the wheel.
Aha effects are guaranteed.
The own self-image, potential and added value for the company
Authenticity needs its place. Acknowledging ourselves is crucial if we want to be successful on the job. We address convictions, values and personality. In doing so, we discover beliefs and can harness the power that comes from feeling “in the right place at the right time”.
Expertise has many sources. Some is conscious and one works on further development. Some talents are unconscious or unused when viewed in a different context. Therefore, we look at profession, hobbies and excellence that arise from personal circumstances. We make pearls out of grains of sand.
One’s own creative power is valuable when it delivers added value. We translate performance and work results into added value for customers and users. Those who know what added value is to be achieved will align their performance with it and experience self-efficacy.
