Progress Principle: Post #7---Dynamics
Inner Work Life is Dynamic—a mixture of perceptions (making sense of events), emotions (positive, negative and mood) and motivation (desire to do the work). (See the diagram on p. 37.) Emotion areas of the brain are strongly connected to how we perceive and learn. Inner work life impacts dramatically on performance. In the “memorable event diary” response, most people described emotional events either positive or negative. Meaningful work supported by leadership enhances the lives of employees. Such managers become heroes, of the best sort, to their employees.
