What is it that allows you or your clients to flourish at work? To be fully engaged, energized and excited about work? Find fulfilment through work and know that you are making a difference? This is spirit at work and the power is within each of us to create it, simply by rethinking our work.
Spirit at work is about being fully engaged in and finding meaning and fulfillment through work. It involves profound feelings of well-being, a belief that one’s work makes a contribution, and a sense of connection to others and common purpose.
This evidence-based eCourse draws upon the book, Rethinking Your Work: Getting to the Heart of What Matters, by Val Kinjerski, PhD, RSW and the latest findings in the field of positive psychology. The research shows that spirit at work is available to everyone and can and should be fostered.
This intermediate level Course, suitable for social workers assisting clients with work issues, examines what spirit at work is, how it develops, and proven ways to foster it. While exploring your own spirit at work and the proven methods to increase it, you will be in a better position to help others attain the same.

- Introduction of the concept and supporting research.
- Application of some of the strategies at a personal level.
- Examination of how the application of this strategy impacts the people we serve, whether that is our clients, students, or employees.
