The future of work:
Will your organization
just survive…or thrive?

The challenges

The biggest challenges organizations are facing today is a combination of megatrends:

If you are a CEO or a CHRO, you are very familiar with these challenges…and you are not alone.

Studies show that these challenges are universal and affect every organization on the planet. And they are all trying to figure out how to solve it. But you cannot solve anything unless you know why you have the problem in the first place.

The reason for all these challenges are unrecognized negative emotions.

These emotions are caused by unmet psychological needs and real workplace challenges that are not dealt with. Emotions impact your employees every single day. And if the employees don’t have the ability to deal with their negative emotions, it will inevitably lead to intense frustration. 

If that frustration goes unanswered, it leads to cynicism, lack of motivation and low engagement in the workplace. Also known as quiet quitting. If this happens, your employees WILL look for a new job.

Attracting AND retaining the best talent becomes almost impossible.

Even if they don’t leave, their capacity to innovate, solve problems and reach business targets will diminish greatly, simply because neither they nor the organization know how to deal with negative emotions and what is causing them

Do we realize how this negative spiral affects our organizations and their results? Do we understand how much potential is lost because we don’t utilize the power of emotions?

The solution

The solution is deceptively simple. We need to understand the role of emotions: how they affect people at all levels of your organization as well as your business performance. And we do that by using something called Emotional Agency.

Emotional Agency is the awareness and understanding of emotions in activities and interactions in the workplace.

While most companies focus on hard facts like operating models, KPI’s and goal setting, the fact remains that even with the best systems in place, emotions still run people. While those hard facts are important, they won’t work without emotions.

Essentially we need to change the mindset from managing employees to leading human beings.

“Emotions are the fuel that boost people to make things happen
– or not.”

What’s the difference between Emotional Intelligence and Emotional Agency?
Emotional intelligence – the ability to act in an emotionally intelligent manner with oneself and with others. Emotional intelligence is usually only assessed at the individual level, without regard to the group dynamic.

Emotional agency is the awareness, understanding and consideration of emotions in activities, interactions and organizational practices. It is worth noting that emotional agency is a competence that CAN be developed – and as the term agency indicates, the whole core of it lies in active participation – learning and continuous development being the key elements of it.

What is Emotional Agency?
Researchers from the best Universities in Finland together with the Emergy team got together and brought the concepts of agency and emotional intelligence together, creating a completely new and innovative concept: Emotional Agency. Emotional Agency takes into account both the individual level and the interpersonal (group) level. It is a completely new way to think about workplace emotional intelligence.

The first article of this groundbreaking research on the concept of emotional agency has just been published: Emotional Agency at work: The Development and Validation of a Measure.

“By combining hard facts and emotions you create an organization that will not only survive, but thrive.”
