Mappalicious discontinued for the time being…

Dear reader! I´ve decided to discontinue writing on Mappalicious for the time being. I´m currently going through a transition in my professional life, as well as writing on a German book on Posititive Organizational Science. For this reason, my focus and energy is needed elsewhere. This is not to say that Mappalicious as a project is finished – but I will not add any new articles at least until the second half of 2019. Of course, you can still access all the content…

10 essential Research Articles on Meaningful Work

Out of the letters of the PERMA acronym that comprises the essential building blocks of Positive Psychology, for the last years, I´ve been first and foremost intruiged by the letter M for meaning. Getting to (and helping others to get to) a deeper understanding of the nature and mechanics of meaningful work has been one of the cornerstones of my endeavors in Positive Psychology – and also the backbone of my own research. Here are those ten research articles that…

Do you Want to Make your Work more Meaningful? Aim for the S.P.I.R.E.!

I´m a big fan of the work of Professor Michael F. Steger (Colorado State University), one of the world´s foremost scholars on the subject of meaning in life and meaning in work (see his TEDx Talk here). In fact, he´s not only a top-notch scientist, but at the same time he´s able to turn his research (plus other people´s scholarly work) into actionable insights for business leaders. Accordingly, I was more than thrilled when Michael agreed to work with me on a paper that…

A Place in the Sun: On Towel Wars and Corporate Culture

Oh, sweet vacation time. I have spent the last 12 days on the island of Ibiza with my wife and our two children at a seaside resort near Santa Eulalia. The weather was nice, the sea was warm, the ice cream was delicious – everything as it should be. Only one thing has somewhat diminished our enjoyment on a daily basis: My children are water lovers. Accordingly, we spent the greater part of our days at the pool (or the beach, for…

Gerade sagte ein kluger Mann: „Aus der Pluralität der Meinungen folgt keine Relativierung der Wahrheit.“ Und ich denk so: Hach. Schön, dass es noch Menschen gibt, die an die Unterscheidung von richtig und falsch glauben und daran, dass man das schon checken kann.
