Psychodiagnostics applied to the transformation of leaders and cultures
Below are some reflections on last Friday’s session, “Psychodiagnostic tools applied to the transformation of leaders and cultures” presented by Emma Barthe, from Arise Culture & People.
There are three dimensions to any company:
• A personal dimension, such as each individual employee (thoughts – feelings – behaviours).
• An interpersonal dimension, such as the corporate culture and way of relating to other people (communication – coordination – links).
• The impersonal dimension, such as the organisational structure (processes – results).
Thus, two thirds of the organisation is based on people and how they relate to each-other. People and their relationships are not only an organisation’s most valuable asset, they are also their main support, beyond numbers and figures.
If we consider this reality, we will understand that self-knowledge is key to ensuring that professional development results in both an individual and collective development, where people and organisations evolve and grow together towards reaching their full potential and where learning, development and the benefits gained are mutual.
Caring for the psychosocial aspects of an organisation is essential to creating solid and sustainable organisations.
In fact, the success of any intervention aimed at development and organisational change depends fundamentally on making a good diagnosis of the issues or difficulties that the organisation is facing. And in this sense, ensuring that its members are able to objectively carry out self-assessments is essential.
The more you know about yourself, the more you can relate to others, from a position of trust, self-confidence and strength – Weisinger.
This is why psychodiagnosis is such a powerful evaluation tool; it facilitates self-awareness and makes us more aware of our reality as individuals and how we relate to each-other in the corporate world.
In fact, the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) stated that companies located in the European Union collectively spend approximately 136,000 million every year on psychosocial issues.
In an interesting study carried out by the same entity, 28,250 companies from 31 countries were analysed to identify the extent to which different countries looked after psychosocial aspects. Of these companies, 1,500 were located in Spain. They obtained a low percentage, 17%, compared to 80% in the United Kingdom, or 71% in Sweden.
Perhaps it’s time to climb higher and reach that peak where results, achievements and well-being go hand in hand.
