meaningful work

(How to) Make less meaningful work more meaningful.

  • Take all the senseless BS out of people’s jobs – unnecessary tasks, paperwork, and CYA-related nonsense.
  • When you ask someone to do something, use what they’ve done, or quit asking them to do it.
  • Ask people to develop their own best ways to accomplish results, hold them accountable, and reward them for hitting targets.
  • On the premise that we all need to see the needle move once in a while, give them some opportunities for quick wins.
