Just having money doesn’t quite cut it anymore…as we slowly gain consciousness we start remembering the honest power of love and connectedness. We are animals of love and have been for millions of years but we seem to have been overly sucked into the capitalist vortex. Diving deeper and deeper, blindly following it’s cold hard future bound rules only to come out at the other end feeling let down by the ‘promises’ made, but a new light is coming.
Love is treating and respecting the people around us, as we would our family. We respect our elders whilst feeling equal and able to discuss any subject with them. As an elder we have an interest in our ‘children’s’ future so we encourage them to develop themselves and offer help and advice when we can. At the end of the day we’re from the same ‘family’ and want to best for the name so we work together. This is love.
The positive effects of love in the workplace can be seen at every step of the way. As a leader of company we set the example. When we have an active interest in the people and spend our time motivating, listening and encouraging the staff, they will reflect that energy back and amongst themselves. 100 minds working towards the same goal is a lot more effective than 1 ‘leader’ trying to pull everyone up.
As a staff member when we feel loved we feel trusted, when we feel trusted we feel responsible, when we feel responsible we give our best work. When we’re working in an environment of love, we feel safe we feel confident and we want the best for the others around us. Instead of people fighting their own battles we start looking around and picking up the family members who are having a hard time.
As a customer when we walk into a workplace filled with people helping each other, working together, laughing, smiling and confidently representing the company we are instantly infected by this energy. We feel we have entered a place we can personally trust. The staff will approach us in much the same way they approach all lines of business. We are all equal with different responsibilities and we are here to help. Not we are here to sell and ram products down your throat because we’ll get a bigger bonus if we do.
We are now arriving at a point in our lives that we want to work for employers who treat us as part of the family, each at our own stages of development. We no longer want to be working for slave masters shouting orders to work faster, harder, better, stronger we want to be working together feeling proud of our individual work that contributes towards the bigger picture…don’t we?
