Attachment in the Workplace
How does our childhood influence our workplace behaviour?
The talk will explore how our early experiences with parents or caregivers are internalised and form enduring cognitive schemas of relationships that influence the type of interactions that we have with others and the interpretation we make about these interactions. These experiences are generally classified into three adult attachment styles: secure, anxious/preoccupied, and avoidant. Individual differences in attachment styles have a bearing on workplace issues such as leadership behaviours, group functioning mental and physical health in the workplace. Attachment style is a powerful and predictive lens that shows the importance of relationships to our emotional and physical health.
