Absolutely on the mark but few have a clear understanding of what is required to implement and sustain. It takes a lot of effort and planning to be effective but more importantly it requires passion and compassion.

Anand Srinivasan PMP®, ITIL® V3's curator insight, October 27, 2013 12:25 PM

Absolutely. There should be  clear management involvement and investment established to sustain this model.

Well said on "Americans want to succeed, not merely survive."

(From the article): It’s important to remember that we are all driven by a need to feel like what we do matters; that it helps to improve things or creates something beneficial for others. Clearly, the stress and disengagement his employees felt was in part due to a lack of clarity about how their efforts mattered beyond their impact on their organization’s quarterly earnings or the bottom line.

Melissa St Hill's curator insight, October 14, 2013 6:22 AM

Quite an interesting article - I like it... Might be food for thought - I need someone to keep me grounded as I have quite a fiery nature - a lot of "emotional passion" within the workplace when things aren't going quite right - and the opposite always gets me back on track - Nadia Edwards-Dashti at Harrington Starr being my opposite - works VERY well -so I am in full agreement.

 

Does it work for you? Who is your opposite within the workplace that works well with you and how much more productive do they/can they  make you?

 

Also food for thought for hiring managers to ensure there is a perfect synergy within the team. Opposite always attract…
