‘The World’s workplace has been going through extraordinary change and that the practice of management has been frozen in time for more than 30 years … In order to change, we need to transform workplace culture and it begins by changing what leaders believe and then how they lead.’
Jim Clifton, Chairman’s Blog, Gallup Surveys
Transforming culture through trust …
Transforming culture through trust is critical. The world is rapidly changing. The environment is uncertain. Workplaces and communities are diverse.
We react when events do not match cultural norms, family norms and society norms. Our tendency is to pull in and to control, which places stress on both individuals and organizations. We have an opportunity to move beyond our need to control to support a sense of trust.
Approaching culture at an energetic level, rather than cognitive level, allows us to quickly resolve the perceptions that trigger our reactions. Our reactions are the thoughts, emotions and sensations that cause distress.
For health and productivity,
Whether our distress is displayed as anxiety, anger, depression, headaches, tension or others, it produces a negative effect on both our health and our productivity. When we approach the reactions at an energetic level, we do not need to give up productivity for health nor health for productivity. By neutralizing the perceptions that cause us to react, we can create space to better embrace challenges without triggering undue stress in our body or mind.
Rather than needing to create a pause between the reaction and the response or focus on controlling our response, we are able to eliminate the reaction.
