Dec 5, 2014, 12:05pm-12:55pm
Audience: Open to all non-academic employees.
What does being happy have to do with work? We've all been told that if we work hard, we'll be successful. And if we're successful, we'll be happy. What if that formula is wrong? What if the opposite were true and happiness is the secret to success – at work and at home?
Did you know that optimistic salespeople outsell their pessimistic colleagues by 56 per cent? According to the bestselling author of The Happiness Advantage, Shawn Achor, happy employees have higher levels of productivity. Happy employees also perform better in leadership roles and receive higher pay. You might even find that happiness can be your single most important competitive advantage.
The Happiness Advantage is a program that shows you how happiness can improve your performance and satisfaction at work. Happy is a healthy state of mind and it is infectious. When our brains are happy, that positive feeling will ripple out to those around us, which can raise productivity and help us work faster and smarter. The implications for your work environment can be tremendous.
