"Happiness at work" is a central element of my life at this moment. I haven't always been happy. Actually, I remember that during my youth, people were telling me that I should let go more often & that I was always thinking and that it was making them tired. Back then, I had no clue. Actually I even thought that if I was fortunate enough to have functional brains, I should as well use them as much as possible. So I was thinking a lot. And a lot of that thinking would not make me happy. Often, it would be the opposite. Over the years, I have sought ways to be happier and it's been a long journey. Fortunately, I found quite a few and I must admit that today I am quite happy in general, and that I love my work. My work concentrates on helping others become happier at their work. I have conducted a number of in-company seminars for a few clients and the feedback was great. I look forward to create momentum with others who share an interest for “happiness at work". What role will u play?
I would like to meet other people who share a passion for happiness at work, and for happiness in general. I would love to share experiences one-on-one and in-group. Maybe we could even generate a platform for best practice. I hope that people who seek to be happier at their work, will be able to join us, and get inspired by other "happy" members, so that they can go back home and to their workplace, and bring their learning into practice. Ultimately, and this may be the most important element to me: I hope that entrepreneurs and leaders will join this group so that they can find out about ways to make their organization more efficient, by implementing happiness strategies. The survival of our European organizations and businesses might literally depend of this. The only crisis there is, is between (y)our ears. There is huge opportunity. Come and find out :-)
I believe that everyone has the right to be happy at work. As individuals, we can decide to be happy and we can make sure to be happy. No one else can do that for us. Still, I firmly believe that companies can help their employees to become happier.
