The Progress Principle: Breakthrough Leadership Ideas

Inner Work Life (IWL) Discoveries

  • The inner work life effect has four dimensions. They are creativity, productivity, work commitment, and collegiality. Three key types of events are potent forces in supporting inner work life in this order: progress in meaningful work; catalysts that help the work; and nourishers, which are interpersonal events the uplift workers. The progress that these three influencers have on inner work life is what the authors call the progress principal.
  • The negative forms of the key events are: setbacks in the work; inhibitors that hinder the work: and toxins, which are interpersonal events the undermine the people doing the work. Negative events are generally more powerful than positive events. Small wins and minor setbacks can exert a potent influence.
