An objective is a goal, but to be objective is to be unbiased. If you’re objective about something, you have no personal feelings about it. Subjective, on the other hand, has feelings. Anything subjective is subject to interpretation. It usually means influenced by emotions or opinions.
When you are working in an organization there are tasks that are objective in nature and there are also subjective ones. How do we bridge the gap between objective and subjective tasks? The first thing to do is to set a direction or set a defined goal. What is the organization’s ultimate goal and focus on that?
There may be debates on how to go about a certain task based on each style and personality and it would be chaotic sometimes. When this happens, it is time to be objective about it. Go back to the goal and evaluate if the actions taken were aligned with the goals set.
It is not bad to be subjective, we need it. There are things that we need to use of emotions or just simply being human to be able to achieve our objectives. Therefore, it is important to bridge the gap between subjective and objective tasks to attain the desired outcome.
