Helping employees cultivate passion

Two critical work environment design principles that help employees cultivate passion:

  • Creating systems for experimentation to help learners discover their particular domains. This can happen through processes, tools, and management support.
  • Supporting connection among workers. Companies can make it easy for employees to find others with relevant expertise, both within and outside the organization.

Helping employees apply passion

  • Frame a powerful question using open-ended prompts, such as "is this what we should be doing" and "what else is possible," that encourage creative thinking and inspire new approaches.
  • Prioritize performance objectives. Set high-impact performance objectives and track the progress. Make tradeoffs to accelerate movement toward the shared outcomes.
