Your skill level for Positive Presence depends on many, many things, but mostly, it is developed through your life experiences to date, and your level of self-awareness, and to some extent, your genetics.
The field of Neuroscience is a relatively new area of scientific study that began to formally organize in the 1960’s. Since then, research coming forward about the workings of the human nervous system has exploded on a global scale, and most significantly, with the aid of neuro-imaging technology, brain research is advancing in leaps and bounds.
The findings coming forward from the neuro-sciences have huge implications for business organizations on a global scale. And in fact, these findings call for a gigantic shift in how the modern organization develops its employees, its leaders, and the overall organization, in order to succeed in today’s global knowledge-based economy.
In the knowledge-based economy it is the first time in human history that a ‘hard day’s work’ is not ‘hard’ in the physical sense, but instead it is the employee’s brain that’s being worked — it is their ‘mind,’ that is employed. That being said, for today’s organizations to succeed and thrive will depend on the ability of the collective working brain-power of their workforce to create and produce.
Research has proven that the ‘brain-power’ needed for productivity and efficiency today will only occur when we are in a state of positive emotional electro-magnetic neuro-chemical energy. In other words, the emotional state needed for productivity, efficiency, and wellness, is the same emotional state that we are in when we are joyous and happy. The research shows in fact, that the greatest risk to productivity, to work relationships, and to overall wellness in today’s workplace, is negative energy.
Building the skill of Positive Presence requires a focused self-awareness through which you learn to adjust and create a positive and energized mind set through conscious thought processes. The skill of Positive Presence is best learned through real-time on-the-job practice – as you develop a keener awareness of yourself, of others, of behavior habits, and most importantly, of human energy.
