Seen a worker in tears recently as she had a major conflict with her manager.
They seem to have different personality styles and how they make decisions.
Her manager makes decisions based on logic, data, and facts with very little consideration to the “feelings” or emotional harmony. This is according to her perspective of course.
For her, workplace social and emotional harmony is very important.
The reality is, both are very important.
Learning to integrate the two is not easy, but it is important for the success of any workplace. What’s effective in achieving our objective goals may not make everyone feel good, and what makes us all feel good, may not be effective in achieving our objective goals.
This applies in the homes of families too.
