We are in the middle of a paradigm shift where both people and organizations are actively seeking for new ways to collaborate to create a better world. We can see a clear trend that indicates that we need to shift our current focus on money and individual success, to more conscious and value-creating behaviors. The prevailing paradigm says that someone needs to lose if you win, that more money and higher profits are the ultimate success, but now we know that this lead to both ecological collapse and people getting issues with mental illness.
Happiness and meaning are not created through a focus on higher profits and increased control, but through positive loving relationships and the joy of fulfilling a common higher purpose. People who work together towards a higher purpose, beyond profits and who understand the power of value creating relationships will flourish in a way that lifts both people and results far above today’s level. By raising awareness about how communication works and improving people’s emotional intelligence, individuals and organizations can become more successful than ever.
It is the leader’s job to take good care of the people in the organization. Make sure they feel good, are listened to and that they have everything they need to succeed in their mission. It makes it easier for people to develop, become more innovative and to constantly contribute to their own and all stakeholders’ success.
