Ohio Library Workers Wellbeing Exploration Session: Meaning
Based on the results of our PERMAH statewide workplace wellbeing survey, we will hold weekly virtual discussions on each of the PERMAH pillars of wellbeing. The discussions will be structured using an appreciative inquiry framework and will involve paired and small group breakouts, and we will capture and record discussion themes in MURAL. The purpose of the discussions are to discover actionable strategies that could be employed at the statewide level to improve workplace wellbeing.
Humans are not only wired to be social, but to seek or make meaning of our lives. Dr. Michael Steger (2012) finds people who report having a sense of meaning are more satisfied, less depressed and anxious, and more committed to their careers, organizations, and community.
Because these exploration events are highly interactive in nature and include small group discussions, the Ohio Library Workers Wellbeing Explorations series will not be recorded. At the conclusion of the series, OhioNet will share what we learn in a report and virtual debrief. Stay tuned for additional details!
