Eric Berne, the founder of transactional analysis (the theory of personality and effective communication), identified so-called ‘recognition-hunger’ as one of the basic human needs. It is a sign that others recognize and acknowledge us and it can be as basic as eye contact, a smile, a hand on your shoulder, a hug, a handshake, a greetings card, a present or simply a comment such as „‘thank you”. Such signs are crucial for survival, proper functioning and development (just as water and sun are vital for a plant) and a lack of such signs can cause suffering for human beings.
Organizations differ from one another. Some can be described as ‘deserts’: workplaces where managers assume that when they have nothing to say, it means that things are going well.
In other companies, a good atmosphere comes as a result of praise, both in thanks for work done well and as a result of mutual interest in the reinforcement of positive behaviour.
Positively Twisted will help you change your company culture. It will inspire players to think positively and stay in a good mood at work.
