CONTENT : Most organisations want their employees to engage. Most individuals want to contribute and find meaning at work. Yet research suggests that more than two thirds of people are not engaged with how they spend their waking hours. Instead of contributing their creativity, employees seem numbed by work, stressed by seemingly unreasonable demands which costs to individual, to business and to society.

There is a need to change the attitudes of entrepreneurs, leaders and employees. Both should recognize that “business/work” can create opportunity for fulfillment, a concept that is distinct from happiness and success. Fulfillment is concern with meaning making, with commitment and with extending ourselves beyond our boundaries.

The responsibility of leadership is to create a meaningful climate which includes innovation, risk-taking and adopt to an uncertain future. The quest for fulfillment creates economic value, contribution to society and individual meaning.

For participants to reach an awareness and responsibility to establish “meaning @ Work” Viktor Frankl’s Logo-philosophy shall be introduced based on the below depicted questions, case histories and cases.
• What is the humanness of human? What does authenticity mean?
• What is the meaning of work?
• Is there a place for me and my true values in this work place?
• Can I find meaning in mundane work?
• What are the benefits of establishing a meaningful culture?

Competencies, skills and techniques required on achieving the below shall be introduced and experimented.
• How to motive and retain motivation even under adverse severe conditions?
• How to overcome adverse attitudes and feelings such as fear, anger, anxiety, pride, being judgmental, excessive control?
• How to establish a creative and innovative climate?
