In Man’s search for meaning, Viktor Frankl suggests
the will to find meaning in our lives as the main
motivation for our behavior. People increasingly
turn their spiritual quest for meaning also to the
workplace, seeking answers to the questions of the
human soul at work. Although research confirmed the
importance of a sense of meaning in life in mental
health and well-being, little is understood about
the role of meaning in life at work. This book
explores the application of Frankl’s suggestion at
work and examines the manifestations and
correlations of meaning in life in the workplace.
The analysis demonstrates how meaning in life is
related to positive work orientations, satisfying
careers, commitment and motivation at work. It
confirms that positive work attitudes, careers,
commitment and motivation can also be expressions of
a sense of meaning in one’s life, a more spiritual
source for these work behaviors than covered in
previous motivation theories. Providing a practical
insight into workplace spirituality, this book
should be of interest to academics, researchers, OD
professionals, business leaders, or anyone with the
desire to make life and work meaningful.
