“Well Mr. President”, the janitor replied “I’m helping to put a man on the moon” During a visit to the NASA space center in 1962, President Kennedy noticed a janitor carrying a broom.

“Well Mr. President”, the janitor replied “I’m helping to put a man on the moon”

He interrupted his tour, walked over to the man and said, “Hi, I’m Jack Kennedy. What are you doing?” “Well, Mr President” the janitor responded, “I’m helping put a man on the moon.” We love this story because it emphasises the true team ethos developed by NASA. The janitor understood the importance of his contribution. This simple anecdote demonstrates what most of us understand which is that by working together, being part of a strong and dynamic team, results in greater levels of sustainable and scalable success. Of course the way our teams treat each other can significantly influence the quality and output of results.

Gut instinct: harnessing the body's brain

Intuition is often made out to be the airy fairy realm of those who carry incense sticks and see auras. But the body's intelligence is something to be taken seriously.

A chart with descriptions of each Myers–Briggs personality type and the four dichotomies central to the theory The Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is an introspective self-report questionnaire designed to indicate psychological preferences in how people perceive the world around them and make decisions.[1][2][3] The MBTI was constructed by Katharine Cook Briggs and her daughter Isabel Briggs Myers.

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator

History[edit] Katharine Cook Briggs began her research into personality in 1917. Upon meeting her future son-in-law, she observed marked differences between his personality and that of other family members. After the English translation of Jung's book Psychological Types was published in 1923 (first published in German in 1921), she recognized that Jung's theory was similar to, but went far beyond, her own.[1]:22 Briggs's four types were later identified as corresponding to the IXXXs, EXXPs, EXTJs and EXFJs.

Maslow's hierarchy of needs.

Maslow's hierarchy of needs, represented as a pyramid with the more basic needs at the bottom[1] Maslow's hierarchy of needs is a theory in psychology proposed by Abraham Maslow in his 1943 paper "A Theory of Human Motivation" in Psychological Review.[2] Maslow subsequently extended the idea to include his observations of humans' innate curiosity.

Maslow's hierarchy of needs

His theories parallel many other theories of human developmental psychology, some of which focus on describing the stages of growth in humans. Maslow used the terms "physiological", "safety", "belongingness" and "love", "esteem", "self-actualization", and "self-transcendence" to describe the pattern that human motivations generally move through. Maslow's theory was fully expressed in his 1954 book Motivation and Personality.[5] The hierarchy remains a very popular framework in sociology research, management training[6] and secondary and higher psychology instruction.

Hierarchy Physiological needs Safety needs Safety and Security needs include: Risk avoidance and reduction - Operating an effective safety, health and environmental policy - BOC. We can reduce the number of incidents that affect health, safety and the environment when we understand their cause.

Risk avoidance and reduction - Operating an effective safety, health and environmental policy - BOC

This is particularly true of incidents that result from human error or from a failure to take adequate precautions against risks. Creating a safer and a less environmentally harmful workplace is, therefore, a learning experience that involves: finding out more about the risks associated with activitiesunderstanding better why accidents happen or environmental incidents occurreducing or eliminating the factors that contribute to risk. Sometimes, hard lessons are learned only through bitter experience. In 2001 in the USA, a young boy visited a hospital to have an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scan. The gases industry is potentially hazardous. The industry therefore gives a very high priority to health, safety and environmental considerations. Tuckman team development model.
