In one of our most popular episodes of 2023, we had the privilege of hosting Zach Mercurio to discuss the importance of mattering and why most people get Maslow's pyramid wrong. From leadership skills to the impact of AI, we discussed the factors that contribute to a meaningful work environment and its implications for employees and employers in the future of work.

Here are 3 key takeaways from the episode:

  • The PRISM Model: From prospection to resilience, innovation, social support, and mattering and meaning, the PRISM model outlines the essential skills required by leaders and workers alike in the workplace.
  • Mattering Matters: Zach underscores the significance of "mattering" as a cornerstone for developing other crucial skills and differentiates between the "meaning of work" and the "meaning in work," shedding light on how early experiences influence how people view themselves and their impact in the workplace.
  • Growth Mindset & Well-being: A growth mindset is pivotal in fostering resilience and adaptability, and we delved into the importance of leaders creating cultures of mattering in the workplace, especially in light of statistics revealing the impact on employee engagement and mental health.
