Paris - USI 2011 Session
Sense of work, happiness and motivation
Leisure civilization, long lasting unemployment and 35-hour working week have changed our relation to work. It is still necessary; it stopped to absolutely prevail, especially for the youngest persons. It’s a problem for managers.
But it also can be considered as a progress, a return to our roots and a challenge. Work is not a duty. That’s why it has a price. It’s not an end on its own. Man is a human being composed of desire and nobody desires work for itself: we desire work only for the happiness we find in it or that it enables.
On this basis, how can you motivate your employees and your clients? How can you motivate yourself? How can you bind a team together? Reflection on happiness opens here a philosophy of action and management.
