Joe delves into why he believes 70% of employees are not committed mentally or emotionally to their work and how we can go about moving the dial on this stat.
Joe explores various tactics we can deploy to avoid the common pitfall of feeling apathetic about our work. One of these is to come up with 25 reasons why we do what we do.
Joe shares his thoughts as to whether he feels businesses will continue to be people focussed even if the profit margins from such focus begins to plateau.
Insight of the Week
“Every thought a person dwells upon, whether he expresses it or not, either damages or improves his life.”
Emotional intelligence and engaging others
by Shay Dalton
“What if we approached mental fitness the way we approach physical fitness? That is to say, conceiving it as necessary and making it a priority. What would that regime entail if it were a daily act, and what might be gained as a result? What if we resituated emotionality in our profession as a catalytic force, not a disruptive one? Thus, shifting the workplace from a rational environment to a place of outward feeling and engagement. The answer to all these questions is related to the development and implementation of emotional intelligence.”
