He cares about the physical, mental and emotional fitness of the company, so that their performance remains at its peak.
Touchpoint managers are strategic and operational
This function has both strategic and operational components. This is why she is much more than just a little coworker.
In times of talent scarcity and social media talk, it can make a decisive contribution to the future of a company.

In this respect, an internal Touchpoint Manager needs the absolute backing of the management, because his way is bumpy and he does not always make friends.

Requirements profile Touchpoint Manager: Generalist with mature personality

Why a touchpoint manager? Between all disciplines
He needs psychological knowledge and coaching skills. He is moderator, networker, communicator and diplomat in one person. He must be passionately convinced of the usefulness of his function in order to be able to convince. The Collaborator Touchpoint Management process can be used to systematize this task.
Communities need systems of order and also develop hierarchies. The clarification of the hierarchy within a group is necessary and therefore enjoys a high priority. In business interaction, however, this is usually exaggerated. The excesses of power and the overarching hierarchy are above all a hindrance in our new business world - and sometimes even deadly.
Recognize Hirarchies: To probe the status
If two people meet, then they will - and this happens completely unconsciously - first explore their status. Among other things, the following questions are checked:
- Is the other more powerful, more attractive, more influential, more intelligent, more prosperous, or poorer than I am?
- Is he able to take away the woman / man?
- What is his social reputation?
- Is he threatening my territory or workplace?
- How do I know if he is above or below me?
Correctly interpret subtle gestures of power
Usually, such a status comparison is subtle and hardly perceptible: the form of the welcome ritual, the intensity of the eye contact, the gesture's gesture, the proportion of speaking time.
High pitches testify allegiance, the "tone of conviction" claims respect. By the way, basses earn more on average than tenors on the job. Buzzing voices, says our brains, just want to play, stern faces and sonorous voices are serious.
Power Imbalance: The consequences of high status and low status
High status indicates without asking. Low status listens without saying anything. And when "lower ones" talk, their hints are irrelevant. Upper ones need signs of power and also signs of devotion in order to be sure of their status sovereignty at all times.
Submission signals are a soft voice, an evasive look, a side-sloping head, self-indulgence, a submissive smile, a timid apology. Such gestures produce bite inhibition.
About perceived and institutionalized hierarchies
Investigations have shown, by the way, that the winner of a fight increases his testosterone mirror, while he goes to the cellar immediately.
In order for groups to remain viable, there is this subservience automatism - even today. And above all in male packs, this applies: Only when the status question is resolved, rest comes. And only then can one take care of Sachthem.
