Thriving allows us to be at our best, make the most of what life has to offer and more able to build thriving in those around us. In order to thrive we have to understand what gives us meaning and purpose, where we find the confidence and energy to take on challenges, connect with others and enjoy the good things in our lives. In organisations thriving is not a nice to do – it is essential – and leaders must not only help others thrive but need to remember to do the same for themselves.
Thriving at work
How we thrive at work will be different for everyone but my research tells us there are some essential ingredients in the formula and understanding what we need in order to thrive is an important first step. Then we can get better at it – we can develop skills and strategies that support our thriving by connecting us to others, creating more meaning and encourage us to do more of the things that we care about. The good news is this doesn’t involve a ‘leap’ to a different way of doing things, but small, every day, incremental steps that build over time to increase our capacity to thrive.
