How Oxytocin Can Make Your Job More Meaningful

Leadership Instincts

A new study shows that any team work can be made a successful one with two key ingredients:  Trust among team members and Understanding the purpose of the work. Trust and purpose do not magically arise in companies. Rather, they are strategic assets that can be measured and managed for high performance.

Trust and purpose improve the triple bottom line: They are good for employees, improve organizational performance, and strengthen communities, say the researchers.

The research proved that when one is intentionally trusted, even by a stranger, the brain produces oxytocin. This reduces the typical wariness we have of interacting with those we do not know and increases our ability to understand others’ emotions. The enhanced empathy enabled by oxytocin allows humans to quickly form teams and work together effectively. In fact, this response is graded: The more trust one is shown by others, the more oxytocin is released in the brain. High levels of oxytocin cause people to work harder to help the group achieve its goals.

So leaders, if you want a hassle free work experience, plant the seeds of trust in your team mates and let them be under the spell of Oxytocin!
