Job Crafting Exercise
The Job Crafting Exercise™ helps you make your job more engaging and fulfilling. The idea is to view your job in a new way — as a flexible set of building blocks rather than a fixed list of duties. Using this perspective, you create a visual plan for redesigning your job to better suit your values, strengths, and passions. You can use the exercise on your own, or administer it to others in workshops, one-on-one coaching, or classroom teaching.

"A very short exercise that reveals a truckload of information and insight. It helped me believe that I'll be able to start liking and enjoying my job."
"I turned down a job offer this week because the exercise opened my eyes that the things I dislike about my current job are things that I can change - through job crafting — to where I'll enjoy my job again."
"Enlightening... made me realize what I liked about my job and what I didn't in a clearer way than I thought possible."
"Forced me to look at my job in a different way — enabled me to see positive aspects I had not seen before. It's interesting to see what you come up with when you're asked questions you aren't usually asked."
"The way it aligned my strengths, motives, and passions with my day-to-day tasks was a great learning exercise. It helped clarify some of these connections and how we can leverage our strengths to achieve our motives."
