From the author:
We are sentiments that are eager for fellowship
City marathon, football World Cup and Oktoberfest. We love to run in one direction and bawl in one direction, and perhaps drunk with love. Completely normal and absolutely healthy for our species. We need this.
We must be emotional to the limit and beyond. We must be allowed to belong. We must be able to identify with a bunch of other Homo Sapiens. We will flourish when this group recognizes and needs us. We get into ecstasy when we are allowed to expend ourselves for this bunch.
The heritage of evolution
You do not believe that? These views do not fit into our enlightened and so individual time? That we have long since filed?
Why are physicians then agreed that mass phenomenon overweight is the evolution-induced impossibility of adapting to changed circumstances in such a short time. (Here we speak of a period of over 10.000 years!). Seems felt long enough, but our systems look the seemingly different.
Without fellowship we are unhappy
On the other hand, we are demanding an exact adaptation to the day. We can think of what we do, but we can not feel it yet. Man is a sentient being that echoes for spirituality, higher meaning and intimate communion. Without this community he can not develop optimally.
That's why so many children - and now adults - are not getting along in life. They lack a stable and appropriately sized family. An environment that you can rely on in any case. No technical device, no consumer product, and no individualistic on-the-go-gel can ever deliver what we really need emotionally. We are not turtles crawling into the open sea after hatching.
Company, the new tribes
In favor of an unprecedented economic development, we have given up the emotional social structure, which is the fundamental motive for any economic progress. It was the habitation of the clans, the beginning of the tribes, which have always prompted man to discover continents and to lead wars. In us, many decades of archaic blossoming of individual abilities are in favor of the community. From time immemorial, the community counted more than the individual.
Whose triumph the community promoted and distinguished him as an individual. It was in the very interest of the community that everyone found his "calling". That everyone brought his strengths to bloom. The better the individual succeeded, the more the community benefited. Today we leave that up to the individual. That does not really work. In order for us to develop optimally, we need emotionally close people who are genuinely interested in making the most of our greatest strengths.
The misunderstood power of the tribe leads to a shock epidemic
The fact that employees mostly show little real dedication in their work is also the result of the hire-and-fire culture. Anyone who has been released has not just lost a job, he was expelled from a community. This was the time of our history of mankind worse than the death penalty.
Of course, today we have no real livelihood after a termination. But inwardly something breaks. Firstly, the employee tries to take up the new corporate culture and to integrate, to find his place, to build trust and to show off his abilities, but he is not wanted any more from today.
3 tips for more confidence
A tremendous shock. This shock epidemic infects the survivors and the social environment of the fired. If he is not shocked, he has not really worked hard and has not yet discovered his vocation, his pride in his own work.
Anyone who wants to make the sincere desire for dedication in their employees into deeds must create a completely trusting environment. How this works is very simple in itself:
- We consider our counterpart as worth as much as ourselves and bring it true appreciation.
- All that is promised is also kept. It was worth it.
- If there are reasons for which the promised are outdated, a new agreement will be made on the basis of the new facts.
Overload by flood of information
We see in us and our colleagues slumber huge energies and thus performance potentials, which we experience on many occasions, but mainly in the spare time.
In most cases it is the impossibility of clearly identifying the task and information flow, the needs and wishes of the colleagues and the colleagues. We could do much more by approaching our very own needs for genuine natural contact and genuine social support.
