Inner Work Life – Four Ways to Destroy the Meaning of the Work – What to Avoid

Managers should make sure that employees just how their work is contributing. And, most importantly, managers should avoid actions that take away from the value of the work.

A persons belief in the importance of their work is lost in four ways:

  • Leaders or Coworkers dismissing/ignoring a persons work or ideas.
  • Managers acting in a way that removes a persons sense of ownership of their work.
  • Managers making employees doubt that their work will ever be used, which leads to employees thinking their work is a waste of time since it will never be implemented.
  • Asking an employee to do work that is well below their capabilities.
All of these things must be avoided and their must be consistent communication with employees tying their work to the success of the group.
