One of the most critical and elusive aspects of running a business is the challenge to understand and manage the emotional mindset of the workforce. The best places to work always seem to have their finger magically on the pulse of the organization, reacting with strategies that address both the individual and group dynamics. These management methods largely reply on the intuition, talent, and gut feeling of the human resources staff resulting in subjectively clouded conclusions and actions. One sour employee can quietly kill the energy of a team, while an entire department can passively stage a revolt and go unnoticed for weeks. New technology based management tools will emerge that borrow from the ingrained behavior patterns and social dynamics of the mobile generation. These employees hyper communication impulses will be leveraged by management to finely tune into the underlying attitudes of the workforce in a whole new way than ever before. Measurable insights will fuel more accurate sentiment assessments and lead to better reaction strategies.
