Can Secrets Weigh Your Business Down Literally?

Posted by:

RESULTS: Yes they can…a new study in the Journal of Experimental Psychology suggests that when we know a secret, we perceive ourselves as being physically burdened…

Researchers recruited participants to write a description of either a serious secret, like a story of infidelity or sexual orientation, or a more trivial secret…

Then they looked at a hill straight on and were asked to rate the hill’s steepness…

Those subjects who wrote about an important secret perceived the hills as steeper than those who wrote about trivial secrets…

Earlier studies have shown that people who are physically weighted down also perceive hills as steeper than those who are not…

IMPLICATIONS:

I’ve had to think hard about this one…I’ve decided not to share with you the implications of this study…it’s a secret and I don’t want to weigh you down…

But seriously, I’ll share one idea right now with you…don’t entertain gossip (which can be seen as a secret) in your workplace…it distorts how you see things and when running a business people will take more notice of what you do than what you say…

Grow Business Grow® STRATEGY:
A very funky dentistry practice (based in Capalaba, Queensland) implemented a Courtesy System and point number 2 on it says: “When you talk about a person who is not present, speak as if they are listening to your conversation”.…

This type of system eliminated gossip and freed up everyone to enjoy a happier work place…and happier work places produce more profit…win-win…

Our way of doing things is unique and it’s why it produces unique results for our clients…

We would love the opportunity to help you clear your head on what is the right way for you to accelerate your business…
