Let's talk illogical for a second (pardon the frivolity please).
It is a widespread myth that there is no zone beyond rationality. Being rational is a highly discreet act. Yes, it's true that the logical theories always rule the vineyard of human mind. However, things are much more profound than what they seem like. Obvious things are not always the pivotal aspects in making decisions. The obvious is too unsubstantial and won't gratify the demands of tough situations (especially hardships). Obvious things are easy to grasp and don't offer much in-depth insights. The same is true in an organizational culture. It is a widespread notion that an organizational culture strictly restrains itself to the rationale walls of logic. They say when it is an organization the only broad and effective theory is logic. However, firms forget that employees are humans after-all. They have an emotional side too. When the boss assigns a project to his workforce, he expects it to check all angles to get a good outcome. However, everyone forgets the very basic - emotional angle. E-learning development companies have created training content for firms that shows them vividly the effect of a worker's trapped emotions on work-culture. The following is a piece extracted out of their extensive training modules. Let's go through it to understand the profoundness of the study material:-
When it is human mind the illogical is not as illogical as you think dude.
Suppose an employee has to give presentation on an important affair related to his office. His boss has a lot of expectations from him. Imagine what pressures are dancing in that employee's head. Ah ... let's not imagine. Let's straightaway come to the fact. This employee is going through credit hassles. He owes a devilish amount to his creditors. Apart from that he had a fight with his wife. What's cherry on the icing is the conflicts that he is undergoing with his co-workers. Anyway the presentation starts and so does the boss's bombardment of questions. While the employee was talking about the bottom-line, the boss asked him to define bottom-line. In response to that the employee said that he has reached it. He said that he has hit the bottom. His unprofessional answer disconcerted the boss. He fired the employee immediately.
The organizational training material of E-learning development firms explains the reason for the above casualty.
The well-researched study material has brought in Freudian principles in its scope. It encompasses all the pivotal aspects of Freud's Psychoanalytic theory. The theory says that it is not just logic that runs human psychic conditions. If such was the case, then the employee won't have given such an inappropriate response. Beneath the logical cloak, there lies the deeper psychology of mind. This hidden zone encompasses many inherent urges, past experiences, traumas, subconscious desires and unwanted instincts. In this case, it was the employee's unsettled issues and conflicts going on at the back of his logical layer. Sigmund Freud argued that human senses find it difficult to free themselves from these inner drives. The training modules quote his profound voice and insights on human psychology. However, the scope of the modules does not end at the quoting task. The modules discuss further derivations of the theory. The study modules state that unfavorable inner drives affect one's perceptive powers. For instance let's suppose that a worker is starving. His boss asks him to attend a conference room meeting. The meeting is about discussing ways of increasing company's market share. It is obvious that the power-point slides in the discussion will have pictures of pie charts depicting the company's current market share. Imagine things going on in that hungry employee's mind. Obviously pie recipes (chicken pie, fish pie, cherry pie) are revolving around his market (mind).
Course materials of learning management software companies offer more of these in-depth insights on aspects that affect a workforce's perceptual powers, both adversely and favorably.
Everyone benefits from a scientist's principle, but nobody endorses him.
Although Freud discovered the underlying theories of human psyche, but still nobody could believe him and his superior cognitive skills. Times have turned contemporary, but still Freud's philosophies receive acerbic criticism from maverick thinkers and writers. However, his supreme thoughts and brilliance got a place in the profound course materials of learning management software companies. The service providers have realized that organizations today need such brilliant insights to gain efficacy. Lms companies have crafted training content that discusses use of Freudian principles in organizational culture. The training modules state that effective use of these insights reveals a lot about things going on in the heads of workers. If the management becomes aware of the unwanted stress that its workforce is undergoing, it can frame effective motivational programs to remove the stress.
The course of lms companies details thousands of exercises that help firms to mitigate a workforce's anxiety and unwanted strain. It describes ways to cleanse a worker's subliminal perceptive zone. The powerful ways described in the e-books of help workers to restrict the unwanted traumas and undesirable drives from affecting organizational tasks. Also, there are methods that help workers to tactfully ooze out the work-strain. One of the methods explained in these study materials is Extensive emotive engagement. Stress gets a hold on mind only when it finds room to seep in. Suppose a worker is experiencing excessive strain. Now he will try earnestly to get rid of pain. However, he forgets that while getting rid of it he is actually dealing with it (and aggravating it). The mind needs digression at this moment. Things will become favorable if the source of digression is stronger than stress. A mindful exercise that engages his perceptual zone into something that delight human senses, will work superbly. Human mind craves to become a bird at times. If something makes the worker feel that he is flying, he will move higher to a zone of pleasure leaving behind his work-strain (sounds a little hypothetical, but it works). How about a simulation therapy? Put the worker in a dark room. Darkness nullifies stress. However, the exercise does not end there. Stress can relapse any moment at this stage. The next step is to play a video in that room that features blue sky with clouds. The sky graphic used in this video is in motion. It will seem to the worker that he is moving in open sky (as if something is driving him out of his traumatic zone). This will surely help him fly away from his worries.
Another stress-relieving method described in the training modules is Cathartic relief. Human mind has many pains trapped in his subconscious mind. Mind needs a vent to release them. There are videos with intense emotional content that draws out hidden traumas in mind. The videos will probably bring tears in his eyes or he may scream loudly. There is no harm in behaving that way. Actually it benefits the mind by oozing out the psychic traumas.
The service providers are watching consumer behavior closely. All ticks and talks that happen in the market falls into their eagle-eyed vision. The service providers realized the tilt of today's consumers towards latest technology phone gadgets and tablets. How can such wise companies keep these gadgets abstained from their know-how? These firms have created phone application which when accessed through phone gadgets will display the training content. So it is mobile learning that is learning on the go. So training sessions does not have to have an office training room or a formal environment. With applications like these one can get enlightened anywhere with utmost ease. So knowledge is becoming truly global these days (thanks to these awesome service providers).
