Workplace dissatisfaction is nothing new

Workplace dissatisfaction is nothing new

... but the past two years have prompted many people to ask, “Is my job really worth it?”

  • Some have titled this era—one in which employees are unwilling to compromise personal interests for organizational gain—as the Age of Anti-Ambition.
  • Whereas ambition used to be measured in promotions and salary raises, today it’s a marker of how much passion or personal pride employees bring to their roles.
  • The pandemic prompted many of us to reconsider what matters most in life and how a career can contribute to overall well-being. Levels of ambition have changed accordingly.

What an ambition reset means for the workplace

  • The rise and fall of ambition will have a significant impact on innovation.
  • As change accelerates and increasingly complex issues emerge, great leaders will rise to the top of their organizations.
  • Tomorrow's workplace is one of personalization driven by leaders who can keep broader business priorities on track while catering to individual needs. Likewise, promotions into leadership roles will need to come on different terms.
  • Being able to identify how one's work contributes to something bigger makes it easier to roll out of bed with enough motivation to last through the day.

Meeting the ambition reset challenge

  • Effective leaders balance "have to" priorities with "want to" projects that keep employees engaged.
  • Going the extra mile for others encourages them to do the same for you.
  • Creating space for valued employees to try new things can be logistically challenging.
  • The goal in an ambition reset economy should be to create a culture that fosters company-wide collaboration and empowerment.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug
