http://management30.com/ Worker happiness is one of the best-known ways to increase employee motivation. When we are happier, we are usually more productive, right? And we are certainly more innovative and more collaborative teammates. But it’s just not always clear how to make our employees happier.

This Management 3.0 module draws on the experiences of Daniel Gilbert’s Stumbling on Happiness, Zappos’ Delivering Happiness, Shawn Achor’s The Happiness Advantage and the stories of day-to-day businesses to offer you concrete ways to increase worker happiness — and perhaps increase your own happiness as well!

  13. Also, happiness is a mindset, not just a result The very good news is there is quite a number of internal circumstances […] under your voluntary control. If you decide to change them [...] your level of happiness is likely to increase lastingly. - Martin Seligman, Authentic Happiness
  14. Happiness is a path, not a destination We can call this “the progress principle”: Pleasure comes more from making progress toward goals than from achieving them. - Jonathan Haidt, The Happiness Hypothesis
