We need to decrease the fear and increase the love at work.

 

After all, we are people, working with people, serving people. We are not cogs or machines or objects or even resources. We are human. And we humans are at our best when we are psychologically safe. This basic acceptance, respect, and sense of belonging is a state of love, one of two primary human emotional conditions.

When we feel loved, cared for, and respected, we settle in. We feel at ease to be ourselves. And then we humans do incredible things...We serve, we invent, we collaborate. We solve, we contribute, we improve.

We all fundamentally want to know what we are doing matters. Building a human-centered workplace creates the conditions to give and be and do our very best. When we feel safe, commitment goes up and we are mutually responsible. We expect and get the best from ourselves and from each other. 

We make work more human. Why wouldn't we?
