Why your employees hate their jobs (and how to sort it)

There is a universal human need for responsibility and freedom.

by Isaac Getz

Humans by nature like to be in control. It’s a behaviour that kept us alive from our earliest pre-history. So when there’s a lack of it, it can trigger anger or anxiety. 

Our immediate response is to engage the fight or flight response.

This is helpful in short bursts when fighting wolves or running from bears but it also leads to an increase in adrenaline, blood pressure and heart rate, which can be destructive if sustained.
