Wow: scientific proof for my Hawaiian mana’o!

Technorati tags helped me find this jewel, written by Dr. Martin Hall:

Values as DNA for the individual and DNA for the organization.

Check it out … Dr. Hall’s Minessence looks to be a blog I need to spend more time with when I’m trying to stretch a bit more intellectually …

In part, he says,

"From a values context, we inherit from our biology and from our experiences a sense of valuing what we feel is important. This configuration or code is what makes us individual. If we are to think in an organizational context, Values are the DNA (Deoxyribonucleic Acid) that codes the genes, humans are the cells, and teams are their manifestation as organs. These all need to come together to have an effective human being."

He then draws this very intriguing parallel:

"Our relationships are the glue to this DNA. Relationships build human beings, teams, organizations, and marketplaces."

I would wholeheartedly collaborate with that theory.
