3 Ingredients To Job Satisfaction (Harvard Business Review)

The Harvard Business Review shares three ingredients that lead to job satisfaction. Whether you are a leader responsible for the jobs of others or whether you are looking for a job yourself, you’ll probably find that the best job fit for you is one that lets you do:

  1. What you like to do. If what you enjoy doing most is useful, it ought to be part of your career.
  2. What you do best. Many people spend years trying to improve areas of weakness. Focus your energy on mastering what you’re good at.
  3. What is valuable to the organization. Figure out how your particular strengths can be used to better your company, unit, or team. A sense of contribution will make you feel more engaged.

 

If your current role doesn’t fulfill all three, talk with your manager about changing some of your responsibilities. If there is a real mismatch, consider switching organizations or careers.
