Written to inspire people about the potential for finding meaning at work this books features interviews with artists, academics, film and theatre directors, entrepreneurs and business managers. Illustrated.

 

In Meaning at Work, Nicholas Ind asks why we get bored and frustrated with our jobs and then suggests the attitudes and behaviour we should adopt to find fulfilment. Drawing on ideas from philosophy and business practice and illustrated with references to films, art and literature, Ind shows that people can find meaning if they engage with their jobs, challenge themselves to be open to the ideas of others and take an active part in shaping their organizations.

 

Using interviews with artists, academics, film and theatre directors, entrepreneurs and business managers as inspiration, Ind demonstrates how we can realise our potential as individuals and make the organizations of which we are part, more successful. Whether you are a leader of an organization, an employee, a student or about to start work, this book provides a rich source of ideas.
