Have you ever thought about how engaged you are at work?

If you haven’t, it’s about time you did. Research shows that when we’re engaged at work, we’re more likely to have better mental and physical health, act according to our values, feel physically energized and focused, have a positive attitude and feel like we are in control over events that affect our life.

So it’s not just in the interest a company to have engaged employees; it’s a win/win scenario, really.

Let’s start by admitting that, as employees, we’re not passive actors in our own work life. We care about our own well-being at work, because work is such a large part of our life.

In this course, we’ll dig into the secret ingredient of work engagement: job crafting.

Job crafting enables us to fit our jobs to our skills, our abilities and our knowledge, as well as our preferences and needs. It’s what keeps us engaged, creative and productive.

We’ll teach you the ins and outs of job crafting and how to turn the job you have into a job you want (and even like).
