Wired to Become: The Neuroscience of Purpose
The Great Resignation was born out of a confluence of factors. The threat of the pandemic, plus long hours to contemplate what matters, along with ongoing burnout created a global-wide values-clarification experience. People are focusing on their sense of purpose and what they want from their workplaces. It continues to drive significant changes across every sector.
Purpose is the driving force that gives our lives meaning.
