I Thought You Said You Wanted To Run Things Like A Business

Posted on May 16, 2014

In Dr. Hal M. Lewis’ article, there are good pointers for running your organization like a productive business.  “Daniel Pink, whose research in the field of workplace happiness is recognized widely, notes that job satisfaction derives not from extrinsic motivators – money, power, and status – but from three intrinsic factors: Autonomy (the desire to direct our own lives and have some control over  our work), Mastery (the belief that we can get better at something through training and the acquisition of new skills), and Purpose (the yearning to serve something larger than ourselves and to know that what we do matters).  Those who believe Jewish organizations should function more like a business would be well advised to incorporate Pink’s findings and build enterprises that value these three attributes.”  Another Areyvut blog post that features Dr. Hal M. Lewis can be found here.
