The Map of Meaning: A Guide to Sustaining our Humanity in the World of Work
This book introduces a 'Map of Meaning' called the Holistic Development Model, which provides a clear, simple and profound framework of the dimensions and process of living and working meaningfully. Like all reliable maps this one has been carefully tested. It is based on over 15 years' research into the insights and practice of ordinary people. Although the authors borrow from the work of philosophers, psychologists and sociologists to provide evidence and context for their ideas, the main contribution of this book is that it describes how ordinary human beings wrestle with, and give answers to, the questions of 'What is meaningful work and a meaningful life?' This innate human knowledge is captured in a practical model that makes understanding and working with issues of meaning clear and accessible to everyone.
