Three Types of Workplace Mindsets
I’d be delighted to hear your opinion on the following definitions of “Workplace Mindsets” I’m toying with in relation to my next book.
- Job Mindset: Employed to perform transactional duties in return for being monetarily compensated.
- Career Mindset: Working in an occupation to increase the personal girth of salary, title and/or span of control.
- Purpose Mindset: Passionate and committed to a meaningful & engaging workplace among all stakeholders.
I’ve already written the sections that pertain to job, career and purpose mindsets … but the definitions themselves can change.
If you have any feedback or suggestions, I’d love to read them below. Many thanks in advance. (and as is customary, I’ll be sure to attribute in the acknowledgements section of the book – after all, what good is a book if you’re not asking for opinion from time to time – even via a personal website)
Also, for the five best suggestions, I’ll happily mail a signed copy of FLAT ARMY: Creating a Connected and Engaged Organization.
