Search for meaning is key for managing people longer term. Viktor Frankl put it like this:
“If we take man as he really is we make him worse.
If we over-estimate we promote him to what he can really be!”
This 4 minute video clip is very good and came to me via American coach Cheryl Richardson and Richard Branson.
Viktor Frankl was a distinguished psychotherapist and wrote the very good “Man’s Search For Meaning” in part based on his time in Nazi concentration camps. I read it over fifteen years ago and used to give it to my clients it is so good.
What with all that is going on in financial services, the competitiveness and shrinking prospective remuneration I am working with a number of people helping them to get clarity about what they want as well as how they can get it. Give me a call if this video gets you thinking.
