There is science behind understanding feelings. Feelings are messengers of needs. By aligning the pursuit of business objectives with the meeting of human needs, companies can tap into powerful emotional forces in their current cultural situations. Having conversations around emotions assists with survival, growth, and connects you with others. They are also instrumental in guiding your decisions, behaviours, and motivations.
Flip the culture conversation.
Manage Your Emotional Culture
Most companies don’t realise how central emotions are to building the right culture. They tend to focus on cognitive culture: the shared intellectual values, norms, artifacts, and assumptions that set the overall tone for how employees think and behave at work. Though that’s incredibly important, this author’s research shows that it’s only one part of the full story. Another critical part that needs to be considered is emotional culture, which governs which feelings people have and express at work.
