STRESS RESPONSE & COMPLIANCE IN THE ORGANIZATION

Daily life is accompanied by demands, incidences and a continuous need to decide and maneuver stressful situations. Stress factors can be as simple as: what to wear to an important job interview, standing in a traffic jam or waiting in line for a blood test or more significant as: receiving feedback from your boss, meeting a stressful deadline, or waiting for the results of a significant test. Dr. Hans Selye, the father of stress theory, defined stress as a nonspecific response of the body to any demand made on it. [1] The demand can pose a threat, a challenge or any kind of change (positive and negative) that requires the body to adapt, and the response is automatic and immediate. While positive stress can be an effective motive for getting better results, when it comes to negative stress it leads to an automatic "fight or flight response", which provides the body with strength and energy to fight or escape danger. The stress response – FIGHT- FLIGHT-FREZZE The "stress response" is the classic fight-or-flight response. When we experience stress from internal or external circumstances, an automatic survival response originating in our nervous system is triggered. Originally, this response was programmed to keep us safe from real threats of life or death, similar to an early warning system or a genetically programmed internal alarm. Today, in modern life, one stressful thought is sufficient for our entire system to enter into a state of war, with all that this implies

NEUROSCIENCE AND COMPLIANT DECISION MAKING

Neuroscience is the study of the nervous system, which includes the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves. It is a rapidly growing field that is shedding new light on how the brain functions and how it is related to behavior and decision making. One area of neuroscience that has gained a lot of attention in recent years is the study of compliant decision making.

 

Compliant decision making refers to the process by which individuals make decisions that conform to the expectations of others, rather than their own preferences or beliefs. This can occur in a variety of settings, including the workplace, social interactions, and political decision-making. While it is a behavior that is often seen as negative, as it can lead to poor decision making and loss of autonomy, when dealing with compliance with regulation and instructions (intrinsic and extrinsic), compliance is an important factor, in achieving goals and in maintaining a regulated organization and societies.

 

There are several factors that contribute to compliant decision making. One is social pressure, which can come from a variety of sources, including peers, family members, and authority figures. People may also feel pressure to conform to the norms of their culture or society. Another factor is cognitive biases, such as groupthink, which can lead individuals to make decisions based on the opinions of others, rather than their own reasoning. Recent research in neuroscience has revealed that compliant decision making is linked to activity in specific brain regions and functions....
