Once upon a time, your entire staff was energetic and eager to do their jobs; however, this is no longer the case. These days, several ly-enthused employees appear perpetually bored. Meet with each of your bored employees individually to find out where their passions lie.
Have you recently heard someone talk about his or her job with absolute enthusiasm? Their work excites them.
It winds them up. They seem to love what they do. Sometimes when we hear these enthusiastic people talk about their work, our minds naturally start to think about the negative aspects of our jobs.
We might start to think about our lulls, or even reminisce about times in our own careers where we might have been extremely passionate about our work—but as the years passed, the enthusiasm faded. And, maybe after all that time we might even think that our work has become boring.
Of course, boring is not a word any of us want to use when we describe our work.
In fact, researchers are now studying the importance of boredom in our daily and career lives. Being bored is a horrible feeling. We are researchers, consultants and authors inside the O. Tanner Institute, and we write about people who make a difference—what they think about, what they do, and how.
