Social Psychology

Cooperative Understanding picks up where every other diversity and inclusion curriculum leaves off, in social psychology. It’s about understanding individual behavior in a social context. Human behavior is influenced by other people and it is critically important to understand the social context in which this occurs.

Cooperative Understanding deals with the factors that lead us to behave in a given way in the presence of others, and look at the conditions under which certain behaviors/actions and feelings occur. It teaches us the origins of these feelings, thoughts, beliefs, intentions and goals. Once employees understand how they are constructed and in turn, influence their interactions with others, they can be tremendously more mindful.

Mindfulness and Emotional Intelligence

Emotional intelligence is an important component of employee engagement. This attribute Improves employees’ ability to think under pressure. It motivates and inspires others to perform their best work. It takes emotional intelligence to understand what's standing in the way of engagement. Leaders need to understand what stresses employees out, what they’re doing, and how they’re feeling, so they can help to inspire, educate and initiate positive change in the culture of an organization. Cooperative Understanding isn’t limited to  explaining why individuals behave the way they do. It builds on that foundation to construct a mindful workforce by equipping employees with practical tools to increase, and utilize, their own emotional intelligence.

Relationship Building

1/3rd of the average adult life is spent at work. Peer relationships that not only endure, but work happily together for years and years, do so in the spirit of kindness and generosity. It guides them forward. Employees don’t have the luxury of selecting their teammates, or coworkers. That doesn’t mean that they can’t build a career-long relationship, with them, full of friendship, joy, and support. Cooperative Understanding teaches individuals how to embrace generosity and kindness to carry them through their professional, and personal, life. Cooperative Understanding’s relationship building techniques lead individuals to enjoy meaningful success throughout their relationships with others.

Biofeedback

The brain reorganizes itself by forming new neural connections, and eliminating less useful ones all throughout life. It’s how nerve cells compensate for injury, disease, and everyday lifestyle, by responding to new situations or to changes in the environment. The brain is constantly adapting to everyday stimuli. It can be trained. Those neural pathways can be controlled, and you can harness this process to enhance employee’s cognition (ability to learn), increase motivation and focus, treat Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and addiction, reduce stress, and sexual harassment, even strengthen human bonding amongst diverse groups. It may sound like science fiction, but it’s just biofeedback. 

The final lesson of Helix Opportunity’s Cooperative Understanding program rounds out our holistic approach to develop healthy organizations that don’t just work, but thrive. Biofeedback provides scientific techniques, that seem like common sense, but when applied correctly produce scientifically proven results 30 times stronger than any drug in existence.
