Why do you work here? Why not somewhere else? Two questions that can pack a punch – or be answered easily. Both is ok and shouldn’t stop us from asking ourselves and our colleagues these questions regularly. Only if we know why we work for a company can we get motivated for it. Perhaps the “why” changes over time, perhaps it will make certain tasks or teams redundant – in any case, conscious reflection is an effective agent for change and development in a constantly changing working environment. Be bold and try organizing regular “Why Talks”. Start with your department and then move on to the entire company.
Extra-Tipp: Make the “Why” visible for everyone to see, for instance in form of a manifest.
