Learning to Love the Job You Hate

About the Session:

Currently, employee satisfaction and engagement are down, and job stress is up. In fact, lost time and productivity due to stress–related illnesses are costing companies over $300 billion a year and engagement levels have only moved 3% since 2008. And, with 4 generations in the workforce, meeting the needs of each is still a challenge. Workers continue to say they are overworked, underpaid and undervalued; they have poor relationships with their boss and/or coworkers; and they feel hostage to their organization. The fallout includes emotional and health-related issues that spillover to their personal time and family relationships. Essentially, they ‘hate’ their job. The passion they once had is gone! They say:

  • “I’m bored with my job – it’s the same old thing every day”
  • “I am so overwhelmed with too many tasks – I don’t have time to get them all done!”
  • “I hate dealing with difficult clients, customers, coworkers….”
  • “My boss hates me”

But – it doesn’t have to be this way. If this is you, know that there is hope. It is possible to learn to love the job you hate – and it all begins with you! It is fully possible to change your outlook, to alter your negative thought patterns, to develop good coping skills to better manage your stress, and to use your strengths and skills to feel more in control of your work. These changes will lead to more job involvement and satisfaction.

Understanding that YOU are in control of your career – and how you act and feel about it - will help you to feel more empowered so you can go to work with a smile on your face. You will be fully utilizing your skills and abilities and working off your purpose and passion but doing it your way. When you take control of how you view your job tasks, as well as the organization, you will be fully in-charge of your career, knowing that you can handle anything that comes your way.
