How Neural Markers, Emotions & Relationships Affect Decision Making
Are you the boss or a creative leader?
This article is for anyone curious about the evolution of business and the engagement of the employees through conscious management.
The concept of “boss” evolved in the last century, but not enough to surrender its central axis, that is, the control of power. Many companies claim that they have broken with a certain autocracy in their corporation systems by having palliative ways to “humanize” the work environment.
The alarming situation of mental health conditions worldwide, especially anxiety and depression among public and private companies employees, shows precisely that such measures only served to make up a culture that does not consider the employee truly as a human and spiritual being.
You may well know the desperate attempts of human resources to offer employees gymnastics, self-massage, and even meditation to mitigate the dramatic mental illness in the workplace.
What is the impact of these attempts to change the picture of mental suffering? Numbers don’t lie. These measures are not working…. they are just palliatives, and people continue to get sick.
You might be wondering what would be the alternative.
Companies need to halt these palliative measures and invest seriously in training a leadership based on the excellence of soft skills and circular thinking. It’s essential to review the management style to introduce human touch and kindness to the leadership process. In broad strokes, the difference between the culture of boss centered leadership and a circular
• Instead of commanding subordinates, people need training to be autonomous and responsible.
• Instead of using a top down leadership approach, people need to be integrated in the decision- making processes feeling safe and empowered.
• Instead of inspiring fear, generate enthusiasm.
• Know that all human beings are vulnerable. Include this element into work relations, building an environment that allows employees to feel heard and cared for.
An employee is not an administrative resource that makes the company go round. An employee is a human being full of life, dilemmas, existential pain, and an immense vivid potential. Including the experience of the whole human allows an employee to go beyond administrative resources to help a company grow. Promoting the very best in a human being will ultimately carry the human value embedded in whatever the company produces back to that company and to the employees within it.
