Event Details

2nd – 3rd July, £385

A unique opportunity to learn about the latest academic research into intrinsic motivation.

The Map of Meaning draws into one simple framework the key drivers that are essential to the experience of meaningful work and a meaningful life.

Researched globally over the past twenty years, the Map of Meaning, the work of Professor Marjolein Lips-Wiersma, has been tested with people of all walks of life, ages and situations.

From this research we know that the Map of Meaning helps people:

• Identify and work with their own intrinsic motivation
• Increase their sense of integration and wholeness
• Stand strong in themselves in the constant change of life

This two-day workshop introduces you to the Map of Meaning and gives you the experience of using it for yourself, and training in using it in your practice.

Day One:
• The significance of meaning in human life
• Introduction to the Map of Meaning
• Creating your own Map of Meaning
• The significance of balance in experiencing meaning
• Working with the tension between Inspiration and Reality of self and circumstances
• Different methods of applying the Map

Day Two:
• Using the Map with another person
• Encouraging the client to start where they want to start
• Working with the client’s own Map of Meaning
• Using the Map of Meaning for diagnosis
• Using the Map of Meaning for planning a meaningful future
• Connecting the Map of Meaning to your own knowledge and practice

The workshop will be refined to make sure that it meets your needs, and there will be plenty of time for you to connect this information to your own knowledge and practice as we work through the material.

Each participant receives a free copy of the book: The Map of Meaning: A Guide to Sustaining our Humanity in the world of work.

Or anyone interested in having a deeper understanding of intrinsic motivation and the role it plays in meaningful work and meaningful living.

Lani Morris, BA, MBA, MSc, Co-founder and CEO of the Map of Meaning International Trust, has worked alongside Professor Lips-Wiersma for the past sixteen years, and is the world authority on the application of the Map of Meaning. Brought up amongst European survivors of WW2 living in Tasmania, she learned early the importance of being able to make sense of life and work in any circumstance.

Lani says “With the disruption experienced by so many through instability of work, changing life expectations, re-forming families, relocation, and a global sense of unease, the need for a simple map to guide us increases year by year. Each person needs tools that put power into their own hands, releases their own inner wisdom, and gives them a way to make wise decisions for the future. The Map of Meaning enables this.”

“I know from my experience of working with the Map that of all the tools, interventions and frameworks I’ve used, this is one that consistently adds value to whatever I’m doing. It always works. It always has an impact and engages everybody. It has rigour, there is a strength to the framework, and sufficient space within that for people to construct their own meaning.”
Steve Tarpey, Human Dimensions, United Kingdom

“The most comprehensive tool I’ve come across. The Map of Meaning is a brilliant addition to my toolkit. Since I was trained I’ve used the map nearly every week in some way. If there’s one tool HR and OD people should be trained in, this is it!”
Jane Davis, OD consultant in New Zealand

“The is an indispensible tool to keep us whole. It will save us from burnout; it will save us from cynicism. It’s totally non-judgemental. It’s like a key that unlocks all that is important to us as human beings. As a consultant working in developed and developing countries this framework gives me a simple way to profoundly engage with people across cultures..” Kerry McGovern, Public Sector Asset, Governance and Financial Management Specialist
