Center for Meaning works with individuals and organizations on how to discover meaning and values in Life and at Work. The starting point is the meaning concept developed by professor Viktor Emil Frankl (1905 – 1997).
More and more suffer from stress, anxiety, depression and physical pain. Often there is a connection to the experience of meaninglessness. The sense of meaninglessness and the burnout it causes increases the risk of many of the diseases we know in the Western world today. Sickness absence is on the rise and has high costs.
Research has established that the ability to find meaning in life as a management and lifestyle gives:
- Good health
- High job satisfaction
- Reduction of mental stress
- Less sick leave
- Greater motivation
- Greater performance
- Greater commitment

The ability to find meaning gives you why and how
The phrase “Find your why” is known by many, and it clearly supports the concept of meaning, why I welcome it. My point is simply that “your why” comes from finding your meaning in life. And once you have learned how to find your meaning in life, your “how” will also appear.
Finding meaning is a mentality, a culture that needs to be worked up by developing it as a daily management and lifestyle. Companies that have meaning in the workplace dare to dream of the future, they have a purpose, a vision and they have a soul that is transposed at all levels and areas.
