The actions of one or on one can have far-reaching instantaneous impact on another—no matter the distance. This is quantum entanglement. We are connected, even though we appear separate.
If we acknowledge that all people are leaders in their own unique worlds, then we can accept that we bring beliefs, passions and identities to the workplace that must be embraced and included, even loved. And, what impacts one, impacts us all. So, how can psychologists apply quantum principles such as entanglement to teach us about leadership, collaboration and working toward goals with teams in the 21st century? How should psychologists help us align our personal goals with those of the organization? Join us as we attempt to answer these questions and more.
