“The first thing that you can learn as a leader is that you are not working with robots but with emotional beings.” – Pooja Agnihotre, “17 Reasons Why Businesses Fail : Unscrew Yourself from Business Failure”
What is it that makes us connect emotionally with a business? There are certain conditions that have to be met in order for that to happen. I think we can all agree that the owners making as much money as possible limits the number of people that can emotionally connect with that purpose. Despite this fact, businesses today continue focusing on profits and shareholder value. It is very fashionable to “colour-wash” your business and think that is enough, but is it really enough, or does it require something else?
In our discussion today Joe Sejean brings us on a journey of this expertise in helping staff connect emotionally with internal and external clients and teaching them how to convey the emotional purpose of a business to stakeholders.
