Is it possible to Flourish at Work?


Do you watch the clock waiting for your designated 'home time' or do you arrive at work fired up to do your best and if that means staying late, well you don't even notice? Do you spend your days complaining about the place you work or do you enjoy being there so much it's a pleasure? The point I'm trying to make is, is it possible to be happy and flourish at work?

To flourish means to grow in a healthy way, vigorously. It means to thrive, do well, be happy, prosper. Can you see yourself doing this at work? If not, why do you think that is? Have you ever thought about finding out? The possibility for employees to flourish at work is not a notion for "other people" It can be a reality, people can flourish and find happiness at work.

At an individual level, flourishing people live longer, are healthier, are better at creatively solving problems and are generally nicer to be around. Who doesn't want that? Our research shows that truly flourishing involves a unique combination of 6 feelings, Valuable, Autonomous, Challenged, Passionate, Safe and Connected. Our assessment tool measures the extent to which you are experiencing the things that bring about those feelings and offers each person things to do which will make a change that they are in control of.

I completed the Flourish at Work assessment earlier today and found it really quick and simple to do, which was great. The results are available straight away which is a big plus because I'm not very patient! I think my scores reflected the fact that I really enjoy what I do, but I sometimes find working from home a challenge because I'm alone a lot of the time and I am very much a people person. The tips the report offered were really practical and can be implemented straight away which will prove very useful for the future, they also helped me to refocus on the things I enjoy the most about what I do and the benefits of working from home (which very much outweigh any negatives) e.g. if I didn't I'd see far less of my young son and that would make me a lot unhappier than spending time on my own. It also helped me to reassess how I schedule my day, like many of you I can be guilty of leaving the things I'm not so keen on until the end of the day, but if I do them first and get them out of the way I find that I have a far more fulfilling day which ends on a positive note rather than a downer. It may sound like common sense, but sometimes you just need a reminder of how great things are and a little nudge in the right direction to making the most of it. I think that's the best way to flourish.

You can find out more by visiting the Flourish at Work website or our Flourish at Work Assessment page. As always, if you'd like to talk about flourishing at work give us a call.
