We recently hosted a series of conversations with leaders in the fields of employee experience, performance management and HR to discuss the impact of the most significant changes in work practices in over a century. We compiled the highlights, tips and tricks, frameworks and inspirational thoughts from the world’s foremost thought leaders in HR.

John Fitzgerald, Founder of Harmonics shared his insights on how to move from survival to attachment emotions:

“What we do as humans we trigger our self preservation. So we have five survival emotions, fear, anger, disgust, shame and sadness. It’s interesting actually, that disgust was derived from our a way that we preserved ourselves from infection, believe it or not! So those emotions are very prevalent in our environments right now. And they’re being triggered not just once, but quite often. I know that I found myself staying away from the nightly news and trying to self regulate myself away from being triggered back into these emotions. And when I hear the nightly news or hear sky and it’s it’s consistently drama unfolding, I start to go into those anger, emotions or sadness, emotions, and I we all as humans have the ability to self regulate and to move over to the attachment emotions of excitement, joy,and love and trust. This is where we want all organizations to be is in this space but we’re struggling with the survival emotions at the moment.”
