High Sensitivity – Hidden Treasure For Organizations

High Sensitivity – Hidden Treasure For Organizations | Personal Mastery for Executives | Scoop.it
The demand for constant attainability, unabated commitment and quick adaptability, combined with a decrease in workplace security, pushes an increasing number of employees to the edge of their capacities, causing stress-related symptoms and absenteeism. Predominantly exposed to this kind of stress are highly sensitive leaders and team members. However, highly sensitive persons (often referred to as HSPs) can provide competitive advantages to organizations.

Surprises, lack of data, lack of control etc. Where does the wish to /illusion of always control everything come from? See the following post "Are You Ready to Lose Control?" http://sco.lt/8dqCVV

Eli Levine's curator insight, April 23, 1:55 PM

Not surprising.

 

This is arguably why a good executive should descend and mix with the milieu of the general working population they're presiding over.

 

Some of the best leaders in history were the ones who dressed as a common person and went out into the streets of their domain at night, to sit and talk and ask about what is happening and what is going on.  Not a bad idea to systematize something like that and make it on a mass scale while also going out on your own to find out what's actually happening and what the sentiments and needs really are within your organization.

 

No one said leadership was easy.

 

A shame we get so many people with bigger egos than brains and hearts trying to get to those places, without fully acknowledging what the limits are to those positions that they're climbing towards.

 

Think about it.
