GENOS SPOTLIGHT ON
Experiencing purpose and significance in life and work is found to be a key predictor of long-term wellbeing, resilience, and flourishing. Yet, amid all the “to dos,” it’s be difficult to see meaning in the moment. Building on years of researching what makes life and work meaningful, author and researcher Zach Mercurio, Ph.D. will introduce you to key practices for finding more meaning and seeing purpose wherever you are.
In this informative session, learn about the science and practice of crafting more meaning in work and life. Discover how purpose and meaning contribute to motivation, resilience, and well-being. Finally, you'll begin to understand how to craft your own purpose and how to create meaning for those around you.
