Session: Job-crafting for Authenticity & Empowerment

Job-crafting has been shown to improve well-being and engagement at work when done well. However, empowering leadership is critical to support the job-crafting effort. In this workshop, Dr. Meese and Geoff Silvera led participants through a hands-on activity to help them develop a plan to “craft” their current job to help them feel more empowered, authentic and engaged at work. They discussed strategies for both the leader and follower to engage authentically in the workplace, and how to negotiate difficult job-crafting conversations.
