A few stats about the world of work in the U.S… let these just sink in for a minute
– Employee Disengagement Is Costing The US $550 Billion Per Year
– 88% of employees don’t have passion for their work.
– 70% of U.S. Workers Are Not Engaged at Work
– 2/3 of today’s employees feel “overwhelmed.”
– Only 40% of the workforce knew about their company’s goals, strategies, and tactics.
– Companies with engaged employees outperform those without by up to 202%
– $11 billion is lost annually due to employee turnover
Gallup surveys of American workers have consistently found that 70% of people are either disengaged at work, doing just enough to not get fired, or are actively sabotaging their employers.
If people can find a way to align work with their authentic selves and something they care about, and feel that their time at work means something more than just a job, they COME ALIVE. They give 100% at work, their relationships improve and can transform communities.
The COME ALIVE conversation started between Chelsea and Shea a little over 5 years ago. Isn’t that how great ideas start? Very slow and then all at once? They are the yin and yang in their approach to life coaching and their individual careers. Chelsea, the entrepreneur has had a clear, direct path using design-for-good for the last 12 years, while Shea, the intrapreneur, loves to help clarify the heart of entrepreneurs and in turn maximize their business using her creativity and connections. A destination they both arrived at was the desire to bring clarity to others who want to find meaning in their work and live a life of intention. In 2014-15 they both received their life coach training & certification and started working with clients and the community to COME ALIVE.
“We have seen firsthand that when others do what makes them come alive, a huge difference is made in themselves and the world. We wanted to do something to inspire a community of people to love what they do. Fulfillament is our way to do that. What better way to motivate folks to follow their passions and creating meaning in their work than to hear that others have done it. There is no formula to finding fulfilment. Trust the process and give yourself permission to be inspired.”
Fulfillament is more than storytelling, it’s a place to begin writing your own…
