You’ve followed the path that everyone else told you would be the one to lead to success – to your dream job – only to find that your dream job doesn’t feel so dreamy after all.
A 2015 study by Gallup showed that only one-third of the American workforce feels actively engaged in their work.
Each generation is experiencing its own work identity crisis, trying to determine why their work isn’t working for them.
Millennials – social media natives who have never lived separate lives at work and at home – don’t look for work-life balance, but rather work-life alignment, where they can be the same person, with the same values, at home and in the office.
