Our View of Human Nature

Balance between individual responsibility and that of the company
We believe that people can and will act for the benefit of themselves and others but that the right conditions must be present and perpetuated in order for them to do so.
This requires a balance between constructive leadership on the one hand, which creates a clear framework with room for growth and development, and, on the other hand, people who take personal responsibility for developing their own professional, social, and personal skills in a constructive way while working and collaborating!

In human interaction it can be a challenge to translate good intentions into concrete behavior:

We believe that people want to:

  • – Be conscientious and do a good job – but sometimes don’t do exactly what is expected because the expectations perhaps aren’t entirely clear, which makes it difficult to live up to them…
  • – Produce results and have a sense of making a difference – but may fall back into routine behavior caused by lack of support, challenges, as well as lack of monitoring and recognition…
  • – Be proactive – but sometimes are uncertain of how to do this and what they actually want…
  • – Be open and attentive – but may find it difficult to balance their own and others’ personal boundaries…
  • – Contribute to good social relationships – but also can experience insecurity and shyness in group/team situations…
  • – Be good collaborators – but have doubts about the balance between their own interests and those of the group…

…which is PRECISELY why it is valuable to work with the psychological aspects of management and collaboration!
