Interesting piece on the tricks and tools that we composers use to convey emotions.  What's really cool is the development of infrasound - low sub human ear sound waves that have been demonstrated to cause - and I quote ".. extreme sorrow, heart palpitations and shivering" and how it's used in horror movie scores.  I'm not really sure how good that actually is - guess we'll hear more about it from the lawsuit (when it inevitably comes)

The Learning Factor's curator insight, August 29, 2013 6:32 PM

Supervisors and direct reports appear to have a mutual influence on each other's wellbeing, and this influence increases with time. Direct reports of supervisors with thriving wellbeing were 15% more likely to be thriving six months later.


Individuals with thriving wellbeing in the study's first measurement period were 20% more likely to have thriving team members six months later. "This relationship is largely reciprocal," Agrawal says, "meaning that individuals are likely influenced by the shared culture of their team and that individuals also appear to be influencers of their team's collective wellbeing."

Research revealed the universal elements of wellbeing that differentiate a thriving life from one spent suffering. They represent five broad categories that are essential to most people:

Dr. Karen Dietz's curator insight, December 11, 2012 2:12 PM

I am seeing more and more articles on why paying attention to human emotions in business is becoming more and more critical.


And of course, for biz stories to work, emotions must be conveyed in order to connect emotionally to your listeners.


In this article, Ed Boyle from Gallup shares why classical economic theory does not work well today, and why pay attention to human emotions does. As he says, "O'Boyle: As technology and other avenues for connecting with customers continue to evolve, we believe that a person serving another person is still the biggest area of untapped potential for all companies. It's a concept we call HumanSigma, which emphasizes the importance of the employee-customer encounter."


Ah ha! This just goes to prove my point that the highest leverage point in biz storytelling is face-to-face interactions where stories are shared orally -- and coming from a place of service. But of course, it goes way beyond the employee-customer encounter. It is also part of leadership and marketing.


And it is also not just about broadcasting a message -- it's about reciprical storytelling.


Enjoy this unique perspective on emotions and business economics.
