Laguna Beach, CA, June 2, 2023 - emotive.energy LLC, an innovative consulting firm, marked its grand debut last week, introducing a revolutionary new model of workplace wellness and management consulting that goes beyond the conventional methods. The firm is rooted in the belief that people - their emotional well-being and capacity - are paramount and take precedence over the need to preserve any organizational structures or status quo.
We support organizations who want a non-coercive, emotionally healthy work culture.
Founded by Stephen Buehler, a seasoned healthcare consultant with over 20,000 hours of experience in the field, emotive.energy brings fresh insights and solutions to tackle corporate bureaucracy and toxicity. Buehler has a unique vantage point, having spent nearly two decades as a practicing psychotherapist, and over 25 years as an organizational consultant. He has a deep understanding of the psychological intricacies of organizations, teams, leaders, groups, families, and relationships. Buehler has also responded to over 300 critical incidents and community disasters, offering crisis emotional support to response teams and healthcare professionals in the aftermath of these tragedies.
Large organizations are very often plagued by systemic dysfunction, which undermines even the most sincere efforts towards workforce wellness.
We want to enable organizations to evolve into entities that truly value and nurture their people, rather than stifle them with bureaucratic rigidity and toxicity.
We help people cultivate their emotional capability and flexibility by increasing their embodiment. This allows for real, productive dialogue that can change systems.
Real, productive dialogue emerges from emotional capacity and flexibility. Engaging this dialogue well invites people to slow down, discern, and differentiate their emotional experiences to cultivate embodiment. Building a personal sense of embodiment creates a space for new ways to approach workplace dilemmas.
Cultivating Embodiment: Slow Down
The first step is subtle and small, and involves acknowledging the presence of an emotional situation or response. It requires a “moment of noticing,” which “turns on” awareness of what is happening around and within a person. The slowing down process is much less effort or hassle than most people imagine.
Cultivating Embodiment: Discern
Building upon that moment of awareness, the discernment step involves delving deeper into the enjoyment of experiencing … even if this last less than a second. By lingering with affective experience: the emotions, thoughts, and physical sensations of the moment, a person grows their embodiment and can better perceive their complex interplay of emotions, thoughts, and sensations happening simultaneously.
Cultivating Embodiment: Differentiate
When a person can differentiate the affective complexity of their own internal world, they can more easily form a permeable, flexible emotional boundary between self and others. A person can recognize and empathize with others' emotions without being consumed by them. They have self-agency and more choice.
