The Glance for August 26, 2010: Daniel Hanson on how building relationships at work leads to meaning
Daniel S. Hanson, Cultivating Common Ground: Releasing the Power of Relationships at Work, 1997
Meaning and relationships are very much connected. In reality, meaning is discovered when we work together around a life and a task in common. There is no other way to find it. When we do discover meaning in our relationship at work, our lives take on a new depth and richness they did not have before. Meaning in the context of purpose, resolve, and harmony, acts like a fertilizer. It makes the ground we share more fertile. It enables growth of the seeds of our relationships and helps the seeds blossom in ways we would have never imagined.
