Emotional Literacy in Lean Six Sigma environment

(23)

I admit that the majority of us are more knowledgeable with Emotional Intelligence rather than Emotional Literacy as introduced by Weare that is ”the ability to understand ourselves and other people, and in particular to be aware of, understand, and use information about the emotional states of ourselves and others with competence. It includes the ability to understand, express and manage our own emotions, and respond to the emotions of others, in ways that are helpful to ourselves and others”. Another definition: “the practice of interacting with others in ways that build understanding of our own and others’ emotions, then using this understanding to inform our actions”. Because the meaning of emotional literacy can only manifest in an environment that is carrying about peoples' emotions which is highly interactive, it can only exist in a social and cultural context.

Quantum entanglement in a Lean Six Sigma environment

(16)

In physics, quantum entanglement or "spooky action at a distance" defines that one object cannot be fully defined without considering the other. In statistics, but mostly in the Design of Experiments we are often interested in the effect of some process or our intervention (the "treatment") on "experimental units". Experimental units may be people, parts of people, groups of people, plants, animals, etc. Design of experiments is a discipline used in Lean Six Sigma with broad applications.

Entanglement is a property of nature. Non-locality and hidden variables are two proposed mechanisms that enable the effects of entanglement. In many designs of experiments there are occasions when the mechanics do not provide enough information therefore we need to look for hidden variables and most importantly for non-locality in other words to events that do not happen in the same "location", but that are still  connected.
