Go From Disengaged to Engaged
By Samm Smeltzer
When I first began drafting the Engagement RechARTed Program, I was attempting to answer one question. What did I have to share with the world? After all of my life experiences, work experiences and now that I was building an organization of my own, I had to ask, for what purpose? I needed to gain clarity on exactly what I was trying to achieve. From a very broad perspective, I wanted people to know that being truly engaged in your work was possible, more significantly that it wasn’t only your employer that could give this to you. Engagement and work life happiness are within your control.
Professional satisfaction was something I had striven and searched for my entire life. All I wanted was to find a place of employment that could make this dream come true and I would be theirs until retirement and maybe even longer. This was the dream that my father instilled in me, an employer that earned your loyalty for life. Yet when I started my professional journey, that is not what I found. I went through essentially three cycles resulting in three very similar dead ends. Where I repeatedly asked myself, why? I even started to question, if there was something wrong with me? How come I couldn’t get hired and simply be happy?
As I replayed in my mind the cycles, the endings, the resulting feelings. It was in this reflection, I began to realize the lessons that were contained in these cycles. These are the lessons that inspired me to share this reflection experience with you, which is Engagement RechARTed.
Where finding your way back to work happiness is possible? Where finding your way out of the continual cycles is possible? Where finding the answers to your, what seems like never ending, professional frustrations is possible?
Individuals, like you, tell me every day that they feel disconnected, and almost hopeless in the belief that career satisfaction is even possible. Over time, it becomes more and more difficult to remember why you even started down your professional path. Come regain control of your work life, happiness, and motivation with Engagement RechARTed.
