  5. 5. About the workshop • The Happiness Workshop is conducted in the form of a contest, where through a variety of activities, on the basis of team work, creativity, and the H factor, winners are chosen at the end. • The activities are crafted in a way that they touch upon common workplace issues and subtly makes the participants themselves find solutions. • Through a shuffle format, every participant is given a chance to be a leader during different activities throughout the workshop therefore ensuring holistic participation.
  6. 6. Dancercise Activity: Often, some employees don’t listen to seniors / clients, questioning every action they are being made to take. Dancercise makes them understand how it is important to sometimes just follow the leader. Inference: Everybody should have the right to their opinion, but sometimes the wiser opinion must be adhered to without questioning too much.
  7. 7. Teampiece Activity: The bonding between the members of a team/ different teams may be weak due to many factors. Teampiece brings participants together and makes them come up with a masterpiece, enabling building of better bonds in the process. Inference: It may not be the lack of talent, but the lack of coordination that may be leading to lower efficiency. Building stronger bonds leads to better efficiency.
  8. 8. Puzzle Muzzle Activity: When given a task, sometimes people tend to just start off without giving the planning bit a considerable thought. Puzzle Muzzle tests team’s strategy skills and finds out the most patient yet efficient team Inference: Sometimes, in trying to do everything, nothing is accomplished. One needs to prioritise instead and try to achieve what is doable.
  9. 9. Crideate Activity: Marketing and sales as a function may be the responsibility of some, but at one level, every employee needs to develop the ability to be able to pitch their idea to others. Crideate makes the team members come up with innovative ideas to create an ad and sell a product. Inference: Its good to be good at one’s own role in the organisation, but learning other tricks of the trade helps in overall growth of the individual and thus the organisation.
  10. 10. Marshmallow Challenge Activity: Challenges are as easy or difficult as we want to make them look. With the right amount of confidence, skills and strategy, we can out perform our own expectations. Inference: Creativity lies at the core of all business functions. The simplest to the most complex problems can be solved through innovative ideas and solutions.
  11. 11. Office Charades Activity: Miscommunication and communication gap causes lots of issues at the workplace. We try to fill it by inducing a unique gap, in turn trying to resolve communication barriers Inference: Silence is golden, but expressing things at the opportune time is the best thing to do.
  12. 12. Human Chess Activity: In a unique game of chess, participants are made to test their strategy skills along with the courage to sacrifice their interests for the team’s overall benefit. Inference: Team Work is not simply about coordinating and surging ahead, but about lot of compromises and sacrifices as well.
  13. 13. Jenga Activity: Jenga’s the test of confidence, analysis and ability! Inference: Being over confident and undermining yourself, both can turn out to be harmful for you! Try to be a good analyst, and then move ahead.
  14. 14. Power Chairs Activity: Simulating the ‘survival of the fittest’ theory here by making people literally run for power. Inference: With ever increasing competition, people really need to be on their toes these days, one can’t afford to be complacent or inefficient.
  15. 15. Rely on Ally Race Activity: The blame game is a common feature at the workplace. People readily put the fault on others for any failure. The same is subtly addressed through the ‘rely on ally’ race. Inference: Sometimes, you end up getting happy or sad because of others. When you accept it when it makes you happy(victory), lets accept it when it makes us sad as well(loss)
  16. 16. Have less, Do more Activity: Lack of resources/ funds are often cited as excuses for things not happening at work. Through this activity, participants are made to think differently and change their perspective. Inference: You can do great things with even limited resources. You need to just make use of the most important resource at such times – common sense
  17. 17. Who Am I? Activity: A lot of employees tend to get lost in the crowd in an organisation. This could be because of their shy nature/ inhibition to speak up/ fear of seniors. ‘Who Am I’ gives each participants their few minutes of fame and makes them come out of their shell. Inference : Everybody is important and has something to express, all they may need is a platform that allows them to do the same.
  18. 18. Meditation Activity: Work will always keep getting more taxing, but if we learn ways to tackle stress, any amount of work can be handled effectively. There is no better way to deal with the same than meditation. Inference : True relaxation can only be experienced through meditation. Connecting with one’s inner self after a hard day’s work helps one be at peace.
  19. 19. Spread Smiles Activity: The negativity at the workplace can only be negated by infusing positive vibes in the atmosphere. Through ‘Spread Smiles’, people literally go around making others happy. Inference: We get what we give. The more positive we are at the workplace, the more happiness we will receive.
