Lecture: "A biological perspective on the "Working Community"

On Friday June 3 at 13:00 - 14:30, Tue Isaksen (Chief Consultant & MSc in Psychology) will give a lecture focusing on developing and strengthening the ‘working community’ using the OLFE model (in Danish, the OLFA model) as the theoretic foundation for solving strategic challenges and healthy mental state.

The theory is based on a biological understanding of the human being where the experience of control and a realistic alignment of expectations become central for well-being and prevention of stress. The working community and the OLFE model provide clarity and eliminate subjective interferences in the strategic work.

Why this approach?
Stress is a biological condition influenced by culture and culture’s impact on the self-perception of the individual. This means that different cultures affect the experience of control (serotonin) and the expectations the individual may have to own influence and reward (dopamine) in different ways.

Both elements are necessary in order to secure a safe and well-functioning mental state.

If the individual’s expectations of having control are not met, this will impact both expectation and control negatively. Even when the individual does not expect having any influence, the ‘takeover’ of control in the everyday life will have hugely negative consequences for the experience of control.
