“Over 70% of the top issues in the workplace are tied to leadership. It’s no surprise that organizations are urgently looking for the cutting edge science that helps leaders understand how to work with and through their people” – Six Seconds.
“In hard times, the soft stuff often goes away. But emotional intelligence, it turns out, isn’t so soft. If emotional obliviousness jeopardizes your ability to perform, fend off aggressors, or be compassionate in a crisis, no amount of attention to the bottom line will protect your career. Emotional intelligence isn’t a luxury you can dispense with in tough times. It’s a basic tool that, deployed with finesse, is the key to professional success” - Harvard Business Review.
“Why and how do human beings change their course of action, especially when it comes to pressing, indeed urgent, environmental issues? Several important conclusions emerge. A more integral approach to human change calls for a comprehensive assessment not only of the exterior factors that recommend the change (such as efficiency, profitability, and environmental sustainability), and not only the scale of exterior intervention (individual, organizational, global), but of the interior factors driving human beings to adopt or even consider those changes, factors such as stages of development, lines of development, and types of values. Failure to take all of those dimensions of human change into account almost guarantees that exterior solutions, no matter how cogent, will fail.” - The Nature of Human Change in the Real World, A conversation between Ken Wilbur and Hunter Lovins.
