Morale

No comments
Morale - the elusive jackalope of managers, rumored to exist among the predatory snarks, the snarling sufferers, corrigible complainers and witless whiners in the wilds of corporate America.

/>Can't find it, can you? You're not alone.

/>Neitehr can the military, most times. Or the government. Or, for that matter, the Democratic party. They've all been struggling with this search for years - throwing parties, organizing committees, surveying employees, going on budgetary shopping sprees. It's always about fixing some problem, in some straightforward way. "Problem X needs solution Y!" the consultants cry (all the way to the bank), but that's not right at all.

/>There will always be problems as long as there are people. Clamp a lid on a behavior, and it'll simply surface in another way.

/>What correlates with morale is not the lack of problems - but how much members and employees feel they're being taken seriously, and have something to contribute to fix the problem.

Illogical

Illogical behavior isn't illogical.



It just means that you're using a different set of givens.



Finding out what other people's givens are - and how to change them to meet everyone else's - is the foundation of psychology.
