“The deepest principle of the human being is the desire to be appreciated”

William James (1842-1910), psychologist and professor at Harvard University.

Nowadays, it is increasingly common to talk about the diversity and uniqueness of individuals. The possible relevance of their particular qualities and their contribution to the working groups make the trend of going from the collective to the individual a new, highly popular search process.

Although this fashion has its origin a few decades ago, the implementation in organizations has spread with a boom in recent years. In this article on corporate culture, they mention that the behavior of an individual is not the same when he is alone as when he is in an organization.

Manage human resources, employees, from their individuality, as characteristics not merely technical or from the intellectual point of view, but rather from an integrating contribution, where skills outside of these categories, such as communication skills, or emotional intelligence, among others, no longer leaves any organization indifferent when it comes to treating, selecting and / or managing its employees.

It is important to note that this fact makes the management of emotions, as well as technical force, and individual characteristics, take an unprecedented role within companies. For which, having professionals who provide help through psychological support, both in the frictions that may arise when managing it, as well as organizing it, and making a personalized follow-up, are vital decisions for the longevity of organizations. At Wemby, we know how important it is, and we are an allied tool; We adjust each plan to the companies based on the premise that each individual within that group has a uniqueness to show and a greater contribution to make and to offer the organization.

How does it affect companies and how do they manage it?

The personnel function at this present moment has emphasized the development of people – as unique individuals – in organizations. For this, it is necessary to work with their behavior: their emotions, their feelings, their subjectivity.

It is through the need to address the behavior of the members of an organization, where this management begins, since from there, the promotion of proactive attitudes is understood. A fundamental factor when it comes to getting the greatest potential from the person, which in turn, for management purposes, translates into the fact that it can directly revert to the achievement of the objectives set by and for the organizations.

Proactive attitude: the key to success

A proactive attitude within an organization is called the ability to respond to a fact from the solution, not staying in the problem. This definition comes from the field of NLP, Neurolinguistic Programming, which emerged in the 1970s.

This perception of the basic content as human and organizational development, which is in tune with the incorporation of subjectivity in the world of paid work, responds to a new holistic, integral role that develops the personnel function.

The qualities of the person and those of his workforce are fused and inseparable. It is, in this nucleus of subjectivity, of human behavior, of personal qualities, where emotions acquire a primary place. And it is there where organizations increasingly aware of this, recognize the value of taking care of their collective value from the individuality: that of their employees.

From Wemby, we carry out advice, development and monitoring through our therapy to these factors and many more, which will be key, as we mentioned in this article, when managing the organization’s staff from a powerful and individualized approach. Our team of professionals is highly trained to make online therapy a valuable tool for each organization in particular.

At Wemby, we are aware that where there are happy employees, there is a successful company.
