Change Your Employees' Minds, Change Your Business

Change Your Employees' Minds, Change Your Business | Business change | Scoop.it

It's a very interesting approach in this article. Some experiments with monkeys show us how works the brain... I think the human being is not really differtent! [note mg]

 

Many business leaders don't care why employees do anything as long as they follow the company's rules, processes, cultural norms and laws.

 

But we've found that leaders can create and sustain stronger business results if they understand — and manage — how employees approach their work every day. When employees' thoughts, feelings, and beliefs are aligned with their daily work, they do that work better. Leaders, though, can be squeamish about approaching topics many think are better left to psychologists, so they don't even try to create alignment.
