I’ve often been curious as to how people define their career and life success as well as how it relates to job satisfaction at a basic level, and having a higher purpose at a more advanced level. A few days ago, I discussed this topic with Dieter Gartelmann, CEO of Stewart Healing Innovations and Design. Despite his success and extensive life experience (he is 76 years old) Dieter has taken on exciting opportunities in volunteering to help others.
As you may know, in the healthcare system and in our hospitals, we have a reliance on volunteers to help with supporting families, collecting patient feedback, and showing patients around amongst many other valuable activities. You might be curious to hear what insights Dieter has gained from having such a long and successful career and life as well as how volunteering has been a transformational experience to help him with his purpose. Perhaps it can help you with yours.
PS the video cuts off prematurely at the end, but I think Dieter made his point very clear!
