Finding Meaning at Work:
An Engaged Approach to Employee Development
In his book A Whole New Mind, Daniel Pink named meaning as one of the six senses that will
"increasingly guide our lives and shape our world" as we move into the future. For too many years, we have assumed that a paycheck is enough of an incentive for the typical worker to show up each day and give his best to the organization.
