This study examines the relationship between the I.D. System and occupational stress.
The I.D. System defines the innate instincts that drive and motivate individuals, by considering four key drives: the Instinctive Drive to Verify, the Instinctive Drive to Authenticate, the Instinctive Drive to Complete and the Instinctive Drive to Improvise. Understanding the drives of individual members and then employing specific strategies for success can enhance communication and management; this, in turn, has a beneficial effect on employee wellbeing. This study explores this claim. More specifically, the study determined whether the I.D. System can facilitate the management of occupational stress.
This study found that the I.D. System appears to help facilitate the management of occupational stress and improve employee wellbeing. It provides individuals and the teams in which they work with useful insight into personal tendencies and preferred working styles. The I.D. System also provides practical strategies to maximize peak performance and serves as a catalyst for communication. By exposing how employees work individually, teams within the workplace are able to quickly engage in effective communication, and, as a result, are better able to manage the internal and external stressors that can hinder performance.
