Replying to LO24000 --
Hi Andrew, Jan and All,
It pleases me to find such a subject as JOI DE VIVRE after a long break i
had to take from reading this list. Right you are both - there is
certainly a great lack of joy in the workingplaces (what do you think

'leaving part of oneself out of the workingplace' is the main cause of
What i suggest is to look for fuzzy solutions - to give up the old
believes that emotions should be avoided, neglected or supressed and at
the same time to create motivation to produce. Paradise, isn't it?
Practically it is - to prioritize the emotional well-being of the people
in the workingplace (including clients and outsources). There is lot to
be done in this direction,

>and happiness and all that; and we concluded that lack of "joi d'vivre"
>was probably the most important symptom of problems in organizing.
