Work + Meaning

We will spend 100,000 precious hours working. Are we pursuing what matters?

If you are unfulfilled in your career, that is a real problem. It isn’t just about finding work you love, it is about fulfilling the very purpose of your life.  We all optimize our careers for what we hold as the highest outcome from work.  For most, that’s money; for some, it’s passion.  Both are only partially true.  The highest outcome of work is meaning.  When our careers are used to pursue what is meaningful we align to work’s true purpose. In doing so, we gain a chance at achieving success worthy of the 100,000+ hours we will spend pursuing it. Join Ryan Barton for his passionate belief in the true story of work, and practical guidance towards pursuing work that matters.

Leadership+ Meaning

Are you making a meaningful impact?

The only true measure of success is the impact we make on others.  As a leader, we have an immense opportunity to prosper others emotionally, spiritually, physically… or harm them.  We change the lives of those we lead, for good or ill.  We can hide from this reality by claiming “it’s just business,” but that doesn’t change the truth.

The call of a manager is the call to lead to meaning.  Business results follow.  Join Ryan Barton for inspiration, challenge, and practical guidance on how to be a leader of Meaning.

Business + Meaning

The power of goodness dormant in the heart of capitalism

What is the purpose of business? To make money? To enrich owners and shareholders? Yes! But that is not all. When we believe that is all, we condemn employees to work devoid of meaning, we lead owners to their own hurt, and we deny the very meaning of life.

We must know the true story of capitalism and its potential destiny.  Through it, we see the success worth chasing.  And we begin to unlock the limitless surge of goodness dormant in every business… Your business, our business, and capitalism itself. Join Ryan Barton, CEO of Mainstay Technologies, for this powerful message.
