The noticing of people and their actions led to the theory of reverie, which is when an individual starts to explore the meaning and build on ideas and exchange information, which allows sense to be made from the feeling that arrises. It helps form the associations of actions, items and the terms used to define them. Reverie leading to the detoxification of the individual’s feeling, to the point that they can recognise, manage and bear the intensity of what is being experienced.
Further, in the corporate sense, if a company is going to undergo substantial change but chooses not to address their stockholders’ and workers’ fear, apprehension, and uncertainty, they would be unable to return those feelings in a detoxified form causing uneasiness.
The cycle of knowing that we are not alone, understanding the meaning, believe that we have some hope in the transformation, we can then reintegrate that into ourselves to become something larger.
