‘Businesses need to create a different experience of work, which will drive better outcomes for their bottom line and for their employees. They need to look afresh at every aspect of their organisation and aim to ‘fix the system’, instead of trying to fix the individual. This means changing the way they structure their organizations, take decisions, collaborate, manage work, lead teams and attend to interpersonal relationships.’

How This Millennial Shifted From Law To Purpose-Driven Ventures

The world is full of lost people. They are the workers in roles where they just don’t fit. Maybe it was timing. Perhaps it was circumstantial. Laziness might even have crept in. Whatever the case, millions of people are going through the motions, unhappy in their careers and their place of work.
