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 c0-presenter Geoffrey Silvera led participants through a hands-on activity to help them develop a plan to “craft” their current job in order to 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.
