Leading With Happiness 

 

Studies clearly show that a manager’s behavior has a huge influence on happiness at work. Good leaders motivate and energize their employees and create a level of happiness that make employees go the extra mile for the workplace and the customers. Bad managers on the other hand spread frustration and stress all around them.

 

This session gives leaders the knowledge and tools they need to make their people happy at work. And it doesn’t take much. Happiness at work is not about raises, bonuses, perks and promotions – it comes from simple, effective actions that any leader ought to know and do.

Similarly, it’s important for leaders themselves to be happy at work. Unhappy managers make their employees miserable, have a harder time reaching their goals and are more prone to stress and illness. 

We do these sessions for experienced leaders as well as for new managers and we’ve done them for both top executives, middle managers or mixed groups.

CONTENT

MORE THAN JUST A SPEECH/WORKSHOPONTENT

You get much more than just the session. We will help you make sure that the participants gain the most possible and have everything they need to act on it.

  • Before the session

    • As soon as you make the booking we will send you a confirmation so we have all the practical details and pricing confirmed.

    • We will arrange a telephone conference where we can learn more about the audience, the current situation of the workplace and what participants should ideally take away.

    • We can also measure the participants’ happiness at work with an online survey. The survey only takes 2 minutes to complete and is 100% anonymous and confidential. It gives us an insight into the strengths and challenges of the group and helps us further tailor the content. We will show the results as part of the session. 

  • After the session

    • As soon as you make the booking we will send you a confirmation so we have all the practical details and pricing confirmed.The day after the session we will send you selected materials and a selection of relevant links/articles. All of this can be shared freely with participants and it’s important that you pass it on to them as soon as possible.

    • A week after the event we will arrange a telephone conference where we will give suggestions to how your workplace can act to follow up on the session.

    • 2-3 months after the event we can measure participants’ happiness at work again using the same survey to see how much it has gone up.

All of this is included in the price for the session.
