IT’S PAST TIME TO DECREASE FEAR AND INCREASE LOVE AT WORK.
After all, we are people, working with people, serving people. We are not cogs or machines or objects or even resources. We are human. And we humans are at our best when we are psychologically safe. This basic acceptance, respect, and sense of belonging is a state of love, one of two primary human emotional conditions. The other is fear, which brings on rejection, indifference, alienation, worry, withdrawal, anger, uncertainty.
When we feel loved, cared for, and respected, we settle in. We feel safe, committed, and at ease to be ourselves. And then we humans do incredible things...
We serve, we invent, we collaborate. We solve, we contribute, we improve.
We all fundamentally want to know what we are doing matters. Building a loving, human-centered workplace creates the conditions to give and be and do our very best.
Why wouldn't we make work more human?
