The research is clear: happy workers are more productive workers. And it’s best when managers enjoy their jobs as well. Managing for Happiness is about concrete management advice for all workers. Practical things that people can do next Monday morning in order to change the organization’s culture, and make it a happier place to work. This is not only relevant for managers, but for everyone who is concerned about the organization. We create a happier environment by managing ourselves, and lead by example, in an environment focused on experiments and learning.
How can we inspire workers with a goal? (Answer: start your own work exposition)
How can we have a better team culture? (Answer: share your personal maps)
How can we address core values? (Answer: start sharing your value stories)
All creative workers are expected to be “servant leaders” and “systems thinkers”. In this session, you will learn how you can do that concretely, with a number of inspiring stories and examples. As Gandhi said, “Be the change you wish to see.” A happier organization starts with people managing themselves.
