"As inner work life goes, so goes the company. We discovered that people are more creative and
productive when they are deeply engaged in the work, when they feel happy, and when they
think highly of their projects, coworkers, managers, and organizations. But there’s more. When
people enjoy consistently positive inner work lives, they are also more committed to their work
and more likely to work well with colleagues. In other words, work-related psychological benefits
for employees translate into performance benefts for the company"

  • The progress principle 
  • catalyst factor:  Catalysts are actions that directly support the work on the project  
  • nourishment factor:  nourishers are interpersonal triggers, directed at the person. They include respect, encouragement, comfort, and other forms of social or emotional support  
Just as setbacks are the opposite of progress, inhibitors are the opposites of catalysts,
toxins are the opposite of nourishers. 

Progress and inner work life feed each other ...  Progress enhances inner work life (the progress principle) and positive inner work life leads to further progress.
To harness this powerful force, you must ensure that consistent forward movement in meaningful work is a regular occurrence in your employees’ daily work lives, despite the inevitable setbacks that all nontrivial work entails. aware of when we start to spiral down into the vicious rather than virtuous loop.
