Job Crafting Exercise as a Helpful Tool
Many employees feel stuck, dissatisfied, or disengaged at work. With today's busy schedules, even employees who are happy with their jobs often overlook opportunities for shaping their jobs to better suit their personalities and interests. Both satisfied and dissatisfied employees can benefit from creating a better fit between their jobs and what drives them personally. But how does someone go about identifying how to accomplish this? Individuals and organizations had few places to turn for tools to help in this area.
The Job Crafting Exercise™ (JCE) is a tool that helps you make your job more engaging and fulfilling. It was developed and tested using cutting-edge academic research. The JCE helps you view your job in a new way — as a flexible set of building blocks rather than a fixed list of duties. Using this perspective, you create a visual plan for redesigning your job to better suit your values, strengths, and passions.
The visual and creative nature of the JCE enables people to ask and answer a number of questions about their jobs in a clear, concise, and enjoyable way. As a result, people find that the JCE helps them generate innovative insights and ideas on how to improve their lives at work. The JCE comes as a workbook with all the necessary supplies (besides a writing instrument). One workbook is needed per participant. You can use the JCE on your own, or administer it to others in workshops, one-on-one coaching, or classroom teaching. For more info, visit www.jobcrafting.org.
