8 out of 10 people in every company globally are believed to be indifferent about their work. Love your work verses indifferent about your work. It's a great way to categorise where we are today with people and teams, and perhaps the basis of why so many people are disengaged according to Gallup, and happy to up and leave an organisation because they don't ... well, love it. Loving your work means you like the people you work with, you find true meaning in your work, you fulfil your own why, you can match your personal values with those of the company, having leadership you admire, having a direction to head in and trust in the leadership, they know how to get there, and a place where people feel trusted, a place where they feel safe. It's a lot to ask a leader to create that environment, but surely that's a good starting point as a checklist to say, "How do you have people love the work they do in your company?" When most are indifferent, the few are in love. What if you could...
