Partnering with Michelle Brailsford of Jupiter Consulting, Katie provides consultancy, runs workshops and gives talks on meaningful work that encourage participants to:

  • discover what matters most to them as individuals about the work they do, and where they can find their meaningfulness
  • learn the mistakes that organisations can make in trying to ‘manage meaningfulness’, or in failing to manage meaningfulness at all
  • work out how to create an ecosystem for meaningful work where employees can nurture their own sense of meaningfulness

There are many benefits arising from authentically meaningful work to both organisations and employees, including raised levels of wellbeing, job satisfaction and engagement, and lower levels of stress, intent to quit and absenteeism. Sometimes, employers do not know where their employees find the meaning in their work, and gaining insight into what matters most to people can release higher levels of creativity, innovation and performance.

Claire Mason, CEO of Man Bites Dog said:

‘An inspirational and motivational session that helped us to understand the diversity of where we all find meaning in our work’.

Pippa Drew, Group HR Director at Seymour House said:

‘The workshop went well and was well received by our team. I found the preparation process to be effective and professional – Katie gathered the information she needed to ensure the event was right for our team and what we wanted to achieve. Our team members were all enthusiastic and engaged with the subject, and it has become an ongoing topic of conversation and focus for them.  The feedback included:

‘I thought it was really thought-provoking and certainly made me think. I would make the recommendation that other team members have some training on this as it makes you appreciate the job we do and the company we work for.’

‘Having recently attended the Future Leaders Group Meaningfulness in the Workplace event, it encouraged me to reflect on my practice. I know if my work does not feel meaningful and I do not feel enabled, I am less likely to be able to meet my full potential. Eventually, this is what became part of the reason for leaving my previous employment and joining Seymour House.’
