Why Is the Soft Stuff So Hard?

Why Is the Soft Stuff So Hard? | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it

We know that the brain is exquisitely tuned to social relationships, shaped by and shaping our relationships with others from birth onwards. A number of evolutionary psychologists maintain that our brain is proportionately the largest of all mammals because of the need to maintain relationships with large numbers of people. So why should relationship issues be so hard and what can the neurosciences tell us that might help?

I've always felt that the labelling of relationship management as 'soft stuff' is wholly inaccurate, as it has never been so and never will be!

 

Managing your relationships as a leader and manager has always been tough, complex and often downright hazardous! So 'soft stuff' is a complete oxymoron! However, here's a useful article to explore why is is so hard just that little bit further!

Ron McIntyre's curator insight, November 30, 2013 2:51 PM

As we discuss Relationship Capital, this article can help understanding why the term is so tough to acknowledge.

5 Gut Instincts You Don’t Want to Ignore

5 Gut Instincts You Don’t Want to Ignore | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it

Instincts are not some weird mystical power that are only found in the animal kingdom.


Gut instincts are degind as: an innate, typically fixed pattern of behaviour in animals in response to certain stimuli.


We are born with instincts to help us survive.  As much as we may pretend we are not, we are very much animals; why do we try to deny this?


That is not to say that we aren’t incredibly smart or that we aren’t capable of complex thinking. But even though we are very intelligent, our minds are also very clever and like to try to trick us.


Instinctually we know when to run from predators; when we are babies, we know how to feed from our mothers and we know when something just feels ‘off’. The problem is when our sixth sense shouts a warning, we stall and we think.

Garth Sanginiti's curator insight, October 26, 2013 6:12 PM

"While it may feel as if the tigers are lurking, today few of us face this kind of threat.  Instead we face ongoing, persistent threats tied to complex relational issues such as doing more work with less, talent shortages, and economic uncertainly. At work, the “tigers” are often other people; according to the 2012 Workplace Issues study, over 70% of challenges in the workplace are people-related. "

Anne Egros's curator insight, October 27, 2013 7:29 AM

Very true ! That is why coaching is an holistic process to understand yourself. Stress at home impacts performance at work and stress at work damages your health and personal relationships.
