Happiness is the New Productivity for Smart Companies
The 5 top Threats to Managers and Leaders in Business Today.
Business today is a lot different from the past. No longer canyou use your old style behaviors, beliefs and values to drive and direct your team and organisation.
Gone are the days of “business Slavery” as a sustainable and humane solution. The bean-counters /accountants won’t like this analogy. But if they were truly honest and had a deep look at the results of their Values Hierarchy and perceptions, they would possibly see the error of some of thier approaches. not all – some. The biggest challenge today is not resources, management
State of Mind
state 1: Negative Spiral – miserable – no vision = focussed on miserable = unhappy and blissless
State 2: Ideal Spiral = Happy & Flow with positive vision of future – blissfull flow.
Currently – how many of your staff are in FLOW & Happiness?
How many are in state of stress and anxiety – have goals but challenges getting there?
State of mind is vital for performance and productivity as well as your vision going forward.
Thoughts +Emotions = Attraction/potential Magnifier.
Paradox of Intentions Approach
Must have goals – but happiness can’t be tied to the goals outcomes.
Happiness must come form the JOURNEY not the destination.
We need BLISS-a-pline
the consciousness and awareness of getting and keeping your team on hapopiness and flow.
Many people are trapped in jobs they actually hate, in a workplace they also hate, with managers and leaders thay dont respect, value or appreciate!
So where is their passion? Or don’t we really care about their passion, mental state, happiness, health or future?
