Meaningful/Purposeful Work

And finally, stage 4. In this stage the focus is personal growth and building a capacity for joy. This stage is also suitable for coaching. I often say that this stage is used for building and preserving your life worth living. A major tenant of dialectical thinking is the understanding that truth evolves over time. Stage 4 creates a space in your schedule to be intentional and flexible as your life naturally changes.

  • A sense of connectedness
