Had not Sylvester Stallone stumbled onto his self-discovered passion in Switzerland! …..there would have been no Rambos’ nor Rockys!!
Thoughts, feelings and behaviors trigger the self-discovery in us; hence when we talk about thoughts we are referring to a lot of different mental activities, including wishes, hopes, plans, predictions, judgments engulfing short and long-term memories. It’s not only the explicit or implicit language or the words we use, but it envisages pictures, speeches, smells and the environments. Work place behaviors are no exception!
My recent stint with ‘Pos Malaysia’ employees (postman and the courier service personnel) propounded the effect of behaviors in the work environment. It is not only ‘money matters’ but rather optimizing each individual’s passion for work and channeling it into a synergy of productive activities. No amount of motivation can work unless we discover the human in us – HUMANOLOGY! It is not only the VUCA technological revolution that is setting the pace but rather the inevitable fact of how are we changing as human beings?
Coaching employees to optimize on their positivity, faith, integrity and capabilities (“PAIS”) over a period of time can be the breakthrough formula. Every individual has a purpose to serve on this planet; instilling a culture of ethics, hard work and civic responsibility can be the mover. Hats off to Humanology!!
Many organizations recognize that coaching is an essential skill that all ‘people managers’ and teams must possess. However most conglomerates concentrate on the C- suites coaching’ only. Ironically, over a period of time the first-line mangers/supervisors become more prudent to the needs of the work environment but never have experienced the power of coaching from their senior management.
