Session descriptions

Your employees need something unexpected: Purpose
If your business is like most, 75% of your employees underperform — even if you pay well, provide good benefits and manage superbly. What’s missing? Research finds they lack a sense of meaning. Fortunately, there is a solution: Expanding the social impact of their everyday work, or “job purposing.” Offering employees the opportunity to serve a societal cause as an integrated part of their workday can boost their engagement, productivity and wellbeing. Learn how innovative managers at FedEx, HP and elsewhere purpose the jobs of their team members. Leave with innovative actionable ideas to make work meaningful and make a positive social impact.

Does your job do little for the world? Fix it.
Provided you’re willing to be a tad rebellious, you can alleviate global warming, bring hope to terminally ill children or otherwise support a societal cause from your existing job. Whether you work in accounting, technology or elsewhere, you can apply the practice of “job purposing” to integrate societal good into your workday. Come learn how!

Purpose or Pub
Think your job is hopelessly purposeless? Bea thinks not. Join Bea as she puts her money where her mouth is. Learn the fundamentals of giving purpose and meaning to any job—yes, ANY—in this engaging presentation. The best part? She will buy a beer for any audience member she didn't successfully help “purpose” their job by end of her speech.
