  • We Crave Structure, of the Right Kind

    We crave structure. Some of the best companies are renowned for creating structure which enhances the productivity, efficacy and satisfaction of their employees. Structure is of great importance. Without it we have chaos. Of course, having a structure that is overly rigid can decrease employee satisfaction and kill creativity. A true master of structure, whom I have known, was one of my primary school teachers. Unlike the teachers I had before her, she allowed us some degree of autonomy. We could move about our classroom. We could discuss projects with other students during class hours. However, she taught us to obey her orders to stop moving or talking, when she gave them. And obey we did.
