As a practical tool, arising from empirical research into what makes work meaningful for people, the Map of Meaning can be used at all levels of the organisation.
The Map of Meaning:
- provides a framework to create shared understanding in the workplace amongst diverse people, cultures, and generations.
- provides everyday language for experiences that are often hard to name.
- leads to practical outcomes.
- acts as a compass, a guide or a GPS system for more agile and emergent leadership of self and others in complex environments.
- enables dialogue about deeply held and personal topics in a safe and professional way.
- enables people to access different ways of knowing (cognitive, intuitive, emotional, embodied) for more effective decision making.
- naturally encourages people to extend their sense of responsibility beyond their own immediate needs and concerns, and more consciously include the needs of others and the wider human and environmental systems we inhabit.
The Map of Meaning is a tried and tested framework used by our certified practitioners to help teams and organisations across the public, private and not for profit sectors take a meaning-centered approach to solving challenges such as:
