Aligning Personal And Social Perspectives At Work

During a lunch meeting at the Mayflower Hotel, I excused myself to use the facilities. As I arrived, a young girl about 8 years of age walked up as well. Both facilities were occupied. As we waited, I knew without doubt that I would allow the young girl to use the first facility that came available. In my family's tradition, senior family members and young children are always cared for first, regardless of the event or situation. When the facility became available, I indicated to the child that she could go ahead, she smiled at me and said you go ahead you are older.

In another work setting, in Killeen, Texas, my colleagues and I returned to the office from a lunch meeting. I arrived at the door first and stepped slightly to the side. Social convention indicates that a man should open the door for a woman, however my colleague, pushed past me, opened the door and entered the building. I was appalled. My manager, caught the door and held it and indicated to me to go ahead. He smiled; I smirked.

I am sure that each of us can think of situations where our personal and social perspectives were aligned or in conflict with others. In the workplace this happens on a regular basis, however it is often unconscious.

We are always coming from a point of view or perspective. In fact, it is usually the way we think about a situation—rather than the actual situation—that dictates how we will respond. Our perspective is the lenses or the filter that enables us to accept or decline others view point or to be successful or fail. Perspectives is defined as an attitude toward or way of regarding something. The question is: How well is our perspective serving us in honoring our values and achieving our goals and what effects are our perspectives having on the results that are showing up in our life?

In the work setting, behaviors are driven by personal, social and organizational perspectives. Aligning the three contributes to the health of the organizations culture, a set of shared beliefs, values and behaviors. If any aspect is misaligned, it will have a negative impact on the organization. It is for this reason, organizations seek agreement from the workforce as opposed to acceptance.

If you are not fully pleased with something in your life, try using one of the Techniques for Exploring Perspectives, to explore other ways of viewing your situation. Doing so helps you realize that the perspectives you have are just one of many; perhaps choosing another one will serve you better.

Are your perspectives limiting your ability to fully engage and maximize your productivity? Engaging with a coach is an excellent way to explore how align your personal and social perspectives with your organizations culture. Schedule your coaching consultation today.
