We go to work every day, and spend one third of our lives making a living, interacting with others, and conforming to organizational norms. We want to feel valued and honored in our place of work, so that we know the work we are doing is productive and appreciated.
Yet how many places of work recognize the value and input of their staffs? According to research, one third of us feel uncomfortable and insecure in expressing our feelings and opinions in improving productivity and quality of life on the job.
Marya Wilson, PhD is an organizational psychologist specializing in the pressures of the workplace, what makes work environments healthy and unhealthy, and helping individuals and teams at all levels in the organization be their most productive and satisfied while building successful businesses.
She says organizations go under stress when management is uncertain or non-communicative about the big picture and the “how” of achieving business goals, when teams and individuals are not asked how it’s going, what barriers there might be, and what resources are needed to break through those barriers.
This can be particularly true during times of change, due to surprises, turbulence, or even planned organizational redesign – just when the organization needs to perform at its best – but is hindered by unclear leadership, reduced communications, fear of change and the future, and cracking of social contracts and trust.
Is your organization healthy? Is your organization suffering from troubles and effecting your health – physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual?
Dr. Marya Wilson of MWAdvising offers a helping hand to employers, employees and teams working at all levels of the organization to improve organizational health.
