Creating Team Bedrock to Make Meaningful Work

People want to spend more time on meaningful work and with teams who are engaged in making that happen. Projects where people's skills and practice strengths are working well together to encourage people to learn, improve and thrive. However, we all get lost in the noise, speed and deliverables of the day to day work that we forget about why we are working on a project in the first place. This results in feeling purposeless, stressed, unhealthy and in a state of “sleepwalking”.

What if we could…

  • Create a project ecosystem that encouraged people to thrive?
  • Identify core practices to help people do the work that matters?
  • Define and practice "meaning" for self, team, project and business to support continuous learning and strategic clarity for all?

This presentation discussion will outline the characteristics of a Bedrock team and also look at:

  • Challenges in work today that block meaningful work
  • Practices to get multi disciplines performing well together and communicate meaning
  • Artifacts to communicate a project story and direction and sustain meaning
  • Your own practice plan to take into your projects to make meaningful work
