Make more money doing what you LOVE!
Posted on July 18, 2011 by Andrea Burk, One of Thousands of Leadership Coaches on Noomii.
When you love your work you will have a higher self-esteem and stronger belief in your abilities; additionally, you will earn more money.
WHHHHAAAATTTTTTTTTT?!?!? A novel idea isn’t it? Earning more money and actually having fun at work? In my experience it’s almost unheard of these days.
What would your day look like if you felt 100% competent, significant and liked at work?
FIRO theory, The Human Element® and ICS work on self-efficacy, self-esteem, self-determination, resiliency and self-awareness among other tangible career skills.
The point is this stuff works!
Studies show that carrying out a work purpose and a greater self-awareness positively impacts self-esteem and the bottom line. For instance, Steve Miller on www.implicitcareer.com shares results from 70 participants who completed the Implicit Career Search (ICS). Each participant experienced positive shifts in self-esteem. The averages of the results are as follows:
35% increase in Self-Efficacy
Greater independence, stronger belief in planning, less reliance on others.
30% increase in Self-Esteem
Clearer Self-Concept, increased confidence, increased optimism.
30% increase in Self-Determination
Less belief in luck, increased confidence in decision making ability, clearer understanding of barriers.
25% increase in Resiliency
Increased flexibility in personal life, clearer understanding of today’s job market and the role of education in it.
18% increase in Self-Awareness
Clearer understanding of self and how it is seen by others. Greater acceptance of strengths, weaknesses and a stronger belief in our ability to change them.
What possibilities will result from you and/or your employees being 100% competent, significant and liked at work?
My work purpose you ask? To provide programs that so people can become exactly that.
Live your life,
