When work-life is aligned to our values (the things that are most important to us), we feel better. We have more motivation and satisfaction with our jobs, and less stress; this decreases the risk of burnout—an occupational hazard for people who don’t define success in their own terms but rather by some external standard or system. It gives us a sense of meaning and purpose, a feeling we’re connected to something bigger than ourselves—both potent sources of wellbeing.
You might use it to:
- Manage your tasks and priorities (and that endless to-do list)
- Set performance goals
- Prepare for a job interview
- Reflect on your current role and organisations
- Identify your motivators (and your stressors)
- Consider your “non negotiables” from an employer
- Set your boundaries
- For leaders, this tool will help you do all these things with the people in your team. It’ll be handy for your one-to-ones, performance reviews and team days.
